McDermott claims Southamptonâ€™s need to stay in the Premier League is greater after spending nearly ÂŁ30million in the summer transfer window.
McDermott said: â€śThey have spent an awful lot of money but if we win on Saturday we go above them.
â€śWhen you have spent a lot of money sometimes there is a pressure.
â€śI canâ€™t be accused of being under that pressure here.
â€śWe have two or three targets and if the budgetâ€™s there, itâ€™s there. It comes down to finance.â€ť
