Ralph Hasenhuttl has warned Saints not to take Huddersfield lightly this afternoon despite their lowly league position.

The Terriers have amassed just 15 points from their 37 games so far this season, leaking 75 goals and scoring just 21 in the process.

However, the Premier League’s bottom side pulled off a shock last time out, holding Manchester United to a 1-1 draw.

Hasenhuttl said: “The last game they draw against Manchester United and it’s something like a signal.

“We know they are relegated and every player wants to show up that he is good enough for the Premier League and a good test for himself.

“For us it means we take this game as a serious chance to say goodbye in a winning way and that’s what I want to do with my team.

“That was the reason I started this week with a very critical analysis of my team because it was not what I want to see. It was a clear message and we will have a reaction at the weekend.”

Hasenhuttl was very unhappy with his team for the display in the 3-0 loss to West Ham and admitted: “I think there were a lot of reasons why we played a game like this and I don’t want to discuss every reason now.

“In general we have to show we can do it better and on the weekend there will be a team on the pitch that their job (is like) against Bournemouth the first 15 minutes. I know is not possible for 90 minutes but one of the best 15 minutes at the beginning of a home game was fantastic.”
