first_img 33 Targett 41 Daly 11 Diakhaby Substitutes 2 Smith A half-time appearance from the former Southampton captain Francis Benali, who raised £1m for charity by completing five Ironman triathlons in a week, helped improve the positive atmosphere.When James Ward-Prowse’s 25-yard effort was tipped on to the bar by Coleman, it looked as if the hosts would push on. However, Huddersfield capitalised on Gunn’s error of judgment. The keeper dawdled on a pass from Ryan Bertrand, allowing the alert Pritchard to nick the ball and slot into the unguarded net for his first goal since November.Ralph Hasenhuttl said of his keeper: “He knows he still has to work on his game. He made a few fantastic games but he hasn’t reached his limits. He has to improve his game and he has a lot of weaknesses he can work on.”Siewert is already looking towards next season in the Championship. “We are all ambitious but important for me first is to have a stable spine to the team.” 7 Bacuna Possession Southampton (s 84′) 5 Kongolo 23 Hojbjerg 26 Schindler 28 Gunn 9 Ings Topics 8 6 HUD SOU Share on Messenger Share on Twitter 6 Hogg 35 Bednarek Share on WhatsApp 21 Bertrand 16 Ward-Prowse Fouls (s 76′) 22 Redmond 9 Kachunga Premier League Substitutes HUD47SOU53% (s 86′) Goal attempts 7 Long 14 Romeu Huddersfield (s 46′) Reuse this contentcenter_img 44 Forster 44 Rowe Corners 13 Coleman 43 Valery 10 Austin 18 Mbenza 47 53 (s 66′) match reports Huddersfield turned one end luminous yellow by handing out free shirts to all travelling fans as a reward for their support during a challenging season in which they won three league games. Jan Siewert, the Huddersfield manager, said: “They are the petrol for us. Big, big credit to them.”With 12 minutes played Joel Coleman made a mess of clearing Danny Ings’s through-ball. The keeper, who spent part of the season on loan at League One Shrewsbury, raced out of his area and hit the ball against his teammate Jon Gorenc Stankovic, leading to Shane Long lobbing narrowly off target from distance.Two minutes before the break Redmond cut in from the left to rifle his ninth goal of the campaign into the top-right corner. 27 Stankovic 16 Ahearne-Grant 32 Jones Lineups 1 Lossl 10 Mooy Share on Facebook Read more The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email.
