View from the dugout
Paul Wilkinson said: "One win, one break, one decision that goes your way can completely change things. But one thing is for sure, we are all focused on turning things around as quickly as possible."

Saints assistant boss Andy Crosby said: "Over the last few years, we have blooded a lot of young players in this competition because the vision of the club is to get a lot of home-grown players through into the first team so we’ll continue to do that."
