St. Mary’s Stadium
James Ward-Prowse fired Southampton to a precious success against fellow relegation strugglers Watford and made them their first home win since April.
The two teams had been languishing at the base of the table heading into the crucial match at St Mary’s, and it was Watford who captured themselves ahead in the first half since Ismaila Sarr (24) coolly finished due to his first Premier League goal.
However, Southampton battled back in the second half, with Danny Ings (78) bundling the ball home to equalise until a classic Ward-Prowse free-kick secured a priceless three points for the Saints, who had won in St Mary’s on April 13 against Wolves.
Although Everton and Norwich about them play live on Sky Sports on Sunday it transmits Southampton to 18th, two things from safety. Watford remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table.
