Romeu hails Hughes as Southampton 'saviour'

Romeu hails Hughes as Southampton 'saviour'”

LONDON• Mark Hughes enjoyed a measure of personal redemption on Tuesday after guiding Southampton to near certain safety in the Premier League with a vital 1-0 win at Swansea, after he was sacked by relegated Stoke earlier in the campaign.

The three points for Southampton mean that they rise above Huddersfield in the table, and avoiding defeat against Manchester City on the final day would ensure their Premier League status for another season. Despite a superb run under caretaker boss Darren Moore the Baggies' fate was out of their hands and their eight-season stay in the top flight is now over.

Southampton have written one-star review for the Marriott Hotel in Swansea after the club's booking was cancelled 24 hours before a crucial Premier League match against the Swans.

Swansea pushed forward in numbers in the final ten minutes but they were unable to find a leveller that would have made their task on Sunday much less daunting. "So we've done what we needed to do tonight, but clearly there's still work to be done", he said after the game.

Swansea's best chance of survival now seems to rest on overcoming Stoke and hoping Huddersfield lose their final two games, at Chelsea on Wednesday and at home to Arsenal on Sunday.

Football's an emotional game, and it looks as though the Swansea City ball boy got caught up in the emotion himself.

"It's been incredible to see how he's stepped in on the first day to try and change things around, trying to be positive and trying to make us better".

Last night, Southampton beat Swansea in an absolutely huge relegation showdown that all but saw Southampton safe, and may have condemned the Swans to the Championship.

The club were informed that the 40 rooms they booked at the Swansea Marriott were no longer available due to an apparent virus, meaning they had to relocate to hotel near Cardiff, an hour's drive from the stadium. We had to come here and we had to win.

Hearing the shouts and screams of joyous players clambering over each other as they have just quite possibly sent your team down must be hard to take.
