Southampton Under-23s coach Radhi Jaidi says there is mixed feeling in the dressing room after the 3-3 draw with Manchester United in Premier League 2.

Saints had led 2-0 courtesy of goals from Josh Sims and Alfie Jones, before the hosts looked to have completed a comeback after Devonte Redmond’s effort was followed up a brace of penalites from Demetri Mitchell.

But Jaïdi’s men kept going to earn a share of the spoils when Ryan Seager scored from the spot three minutes from time.

“There is disappointment with the way things have gone, especially in the second-half,” reflected Jaïdi.

“We were leading 2-0 and then we gave away some sloppy goals and they took over at 3-2.

“On a positive note, it was good that we came back into the game. From my point of view we had too many chances in the first-half and we could have killed the game.

“I told them in the second-half it was 1-0 and we need to keep a clean sheet and manage the game.

“That happened in the first couple of minutes but it’s not acceptable when you defend like that and you concede three goals in less than 15 minutes.

“It was a positive reaction in the final few minutes and hopefully we can learn from this and build on it in the last three games.”
