Callum Slattery says Southampton Under-23s must put things right after their defeat to Derby County in Premier League 2.

Saints fell to a 1-0 loss after Alex Babos’ second-half strike on a disappointing night, leaving their league position looking precarious ahead of a final day meeting with Manchester City.

“We knew the situation so we wanted to get a win out of it. We’re disappointed in ourselves for losing and the way we went about it,” Slattery reflected.

“We can’t do much about it now, we should have put it right on the pitch. We’ve got one game left now so we need to put it right there.

“City is what we’re going to prepare for now all week. We’ll focus on that because it’s a big game.

“We’ll do what we always do and prepare well. It’s a tough game but we know if do things right that anything can happen.”
