Red-hot Redmond helps Saints subdue Wolves

Cavaleiro struck with his first touch of the season

Cavaleiro struck with his first touch of the season

Two goals from Nathan Redmond and one from Shane Long sealed maximum points but the Saints boss insists he will not assume safety is guaranteed and wants his side to put at least another four points on the board.

That was the case in the second minute as Josh Sims, making his first Premier League start of the season, drove down the right and crossed for Redmond to finish.

There were just 118 seconds between Willy Boly's equaliser for Wolves and Nathan Redmond restoring Southampton's lead.

A further goal would have followed, too, had Patricio not instinctively blocked a Maya Yoshida effort.

Wanderers will head to the Spanish resort for the second time this season after Saturday's game at St Mary's and Nuno is a strong believer in its benefits for unity within his squad.

What does it mean?

Delighted Southampton players saluted their fans on the final whistle after closing in on top-flight survival and their coach Ralph Hasenhuettl was also pleased with the outcome.

Meanwhile, the theme of Wolves dropping points against the division's strugglers continues.

"We scored early but we were on the back foot a little bit and that is why we pushed them forward when Wolves equalised".

"I knew it was only a question of time for him to be scoring again".

- Southampton have won eight of their 18 Premier League games under Hassenhuttl, as many as they had won in 52 games under their two previous permanent managers combined (Mark Hughes 3/22, Mauricio Pellegrino 5/30).

Wolves are now without a win in their last five away games in the Premier League and boss Nuno Espirito Santo had no complaints with his side's latest defeat on their travels.

They haven't won away from home in their last six attempts.

- Wolves have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last 13 Premier League away games - only Arsenal (15) have had, and are now enduring, a longer such run in the competition this season.
