We´ve still got work to do - Hughes cautious after vital win

On Tuesday, Swansea City lost 1-0 at home to Southampton and they were hoping Huddersfield will fall at Chelsea.

After more than 70 minutes of frenetic action, substitute Manolo Gabbiadini provided the decisive moment for Southampton when he reacted quickest to Charlie Austin's parried shot in a crowded goalmouth.

"We had to win and we understood that and it wasn't that we were celebrating staying up because there is still an issue to be resolved in that regard".

The Swans have all-but been relegated from the Premier League this season as they head into the final game of the campaign three points behind Southampton and nine goals worse off.

The victory was achieved against a backdrop of what Hughes deemed as "dark arts at work" after the preparation for the match was hit by the last-minute cancellation of their team hotel in Swansea, Wales.

Speaking to the BBC after the game Hughes said: "It was a big performance from us".

Despite a valiant effort from Darren Moore and his West Brom side, the club have officially been relegated from the Premier League after Manolo Gabbiadini's 72nd minute victor sealed their fate. "We are depending on others".

This result gets the Saints within touching distance of Premier League safety, however they are not entirely secure.

"But those things you can use to your own benefit as a motivating factor".

Swansea's final game of the season will be at home against the recently relegated Stoke City, who are bottom of the table.

They are now winless in their last eight games and they haven't scored a single goal in their last four.

In a pre-match interview with Sky Sports, Saints boss Mark Hughes claimed the Marriott was "one of the poorest hotels we've stayed in".

"We must try to do our part and see if a miracle can happen", Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal said. "We must react very fast because we have a game on Sunday".

With Swansea favourites to go down to the Championship next season, along with west Brom and Stoke, the review concluded with the killer line that they were 'not planning on returning any time soon'.
