Hooiveld will accept Southampton demotion

Southampton defender Jos Hooiveld expects to lose his first tem place next week.

He knows that Dejan Lovren will be back in the team at Chelsea next week, assuming he has overcome the virus that ruled him out of the Arsenal clash on the morning of the game.

Hooiveld said: "Every footballer wants to play so it's been frustrating, but we've hardly had any goals against us so if I was the coach I wouldn't change anything. "You have to wait for your chance and of course I wished for a better return. I found out I was playing this morning but had a good preparation - I have a great roomy in Steve Davis! "In the beginning I struggled a little with my lack of game time but as the game progressed I got more into it."
