RALPH Hasenhuttl wants Saints forward Nathan Redmond to add more goals to his game and admitted: “It is not only a frustration for me, but also for him.”

The 27-year-old attacker missed out on Saints’ trip to Norwich after the birth of his first child less than 24 hours before kick-off, as the Canaries managed a 2-1 victory.

Redmond is yet to hit the net this Premier League campaign, despite missing from merely yards out during the 2-2 draw against Burnley, and has only registered 28 goals in 210 competitive appearances for the St Mary’s outfit.

Austrian boss Hasenhuttl has set him the target of adding more.

“It is not only a frustration for me, but also for him.” Hasenhuttl said.

“He has very often got into a good situation to score and did not find the back of the net so far.

“As I always say, it is only a matter of time because he has the chances, and he has the quality to score.

“That does not mean you can play however you want and for as long as you want without scoring.”

He continued: “If you play as an attacking player, you must either contribute with goals or with assists.

“He has had two assists in his last two games so it would be nice if he can now start scoring. He knows that would help us massively.

“It is time to do it.”

When asked about what he can do to help him find the net more, Hasenhuttl responded: “It is more about being hungry to come into a position where you can score.

“I want him to be at the second post and to attack the middle of the goal, to be there.

“The more often you are there, hopefully the more the ball will fall at your foot and you will have the chance to score an easy goal.

“That is what good strikers always do; they are in a position where they smell that there is something happening.”
