With Southampton relinquishing a 2-0 lead over St Mary’s Stadium visitors Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday evening, it’s understandable why there was some flak and criticism flying around at the fulltime whistle – even if I disagree with the directions it went in.

With Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg taking plaudits of his own for his fabulous strike on the day, Danny Ings also came in for plenty of praise as he added the second goal in the final 45 before it then all went wrong for manager Mark Hughes side.

Following the 26-year-olds arrival from Liverpool on a loan spell in August, he has now scored three times for the club in five appearances and he’s on fire and clearly hit the ground running on the south coast, so it’s no wonder that fans are quickly taking to him and he’s establishing himself as a fan favourite.

With other strikers at the club misfiring in front of the net, we have to hope he can continue this kind of form as he’s now directly contributed to the return of four points and things would look a lot dicier even at this early stage of the season had it not been for his goals.
