Southampton boss Nathan Jones has defended Joe Aribo and his teammates following another defeat against Nottingham Forest.

Southampton manager Nathan Jones made three changes to his side following Saturday’s narrow 2-1 defeat by Fulham at Craven Cottage.

 


With Romain Perraud, Romeo Lavia and Sekou Mara replacing Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Aribo and Samuel Edozie, who all dropped to the bench.

Aribo featured in the second half but couldn’t save his team as Taiwo Awoniyi’s strike condemned the Saints to another defeat.

The defeat extended the losing run in the Premier league to four games since Nathan Jones became the Manager.

Speaking after the game, Jones revealed the players are short of confidence at the moment.

“The players are low on confidence and the fans can get behind them, whatever they think. They want to see a result and a performance and we’re trying to give them that.

“There’s no lack of effort, maybe a little know-how and a little naivety, but when you’re low on confidence things don’t quite happen. But things will change and they have to get behind the team for that,” He said.

 

Southampton remain 20th after collecting just 12 points from 17 matches.
