Saints captain Claus Lundekvam insists that there are no excuses for Southampton’s loss of form.
He told the Echo: ‘We expected so much from ourselves, that we would go and make sure we were right in there, and the disappointment of not getting the results is made even bigger then.
‘There’s a few things that have gone wrong and you can’t put your finger on one thing.
‘At the end of the day we’ve hit a bad spell. We haven’t been firing on all cylinders and also we haven’t managed to play the way we wanted to play in these games.
‘We haven’t been on form, a lot of things haven’t gone our way and it’s been frustrating.
‘But there are no excuses.’
