SAINTS U23s boss Radhi Jaidi was left ruing his side's wastefulness in front of goal following the 3-1 defeat to Wolves.

The loss means that Wolves leapfrogged them in the Premier League 2 Division Two table with four games to go.

And after Alfie Jones got Saints level, they missed two good chances before going behind again.

Jaidi summarised the defeat on Southampton FC's official website, saying: "Poor goals conceded at key times.

"When we get ourselves level we created two really good chances to go in front, but then conceded a second before half time.

"It killed our expectation. The first half was key, and we threw away the opportunity to lead.

"We were always chasing the scoreline in the second half, to get something out of the game. There are a lot of aspects that we need to review."

Niall Ennis had given Wolves an early lead in the top-of-the-table clash when he slotted home from close range past Harry Lewis in goal.

Jones then headed Saints level, only for Austin Samuels to compound Saints' misery on the verge of half time. Ennis then added got his second midway through the second period to seal the win.

Jaidi added: "I had to make six changes tonight, which is something we had to deal with. Some individuals weren't at their best.

"The performance in general wasn't what we've come to expect. We're only losers for one day; tomorrow we bounce back and make this loss a lesson that we learn from."
