Southampton must win last game to secure Premier League spot
7:18pm Saturday 21st April 2012 in News
It comes after Nigel Adkin's side lost to Middlesbrough.
More than 3,000 Saints fans had travelled to the Riverside in the hope that a Southampton win would see them promoted to the Premier League.
But despite going ahead through Billy Sharp Saints went down 2-1.
It now means that Saints have to beat Coventry at St Marys next weekend or hope rivals West Ham drop points to secure promotion.
Tonight's result does mean that Saints cannot win the Championship with second best they can hope for.
