Pochettino backs Saints to recover

Created on 04 Mar., 2013 8:36 PM GMT

Mauricio Pochettino insists Southampton will bounce back following Saturday's disappointing 2-1 defeat to Queens Park Rangers.

The Southampton manager remains confident his team will avoid relegation this season but said he needs to see some improvements.

"I have faith in my team, confidence in my team and we will work hard to get better results," he told reporters.

"We are just focusing that we need to get more points and improve certain aspects of the team.

"We are fully focused on that and that’s what is going to lead us to get better results. We were lacking a bit of movement in the creation department and perhaps we were a bit static.”

Pochettino said the two goals his side conceded against QPR came from basic mistakes, and feels his players need to take their chances when they come.

"We basically made two mistakes that led to conceding two goals," he said.

"We put in an effort big enough to manage a better result but they had three chances and scored twice and we weren't able to score more than them.

"Perhaps we didn't create enough chances but we did have more chances than they did."

Southampton are 16th on the table, three points clear of the relegation zone.
