Southampton boss Hughes happy to play two up front for FA Cup win

Southampton boss Mark Hughes was delighted with his strikers after their FA Cup win over Wigan Athletic.

The new boss started with two strikers, as Gabbiadini partnered Guido Carrillo in attack.

“I think we just needed that threat from runs in behind and that energy up front," said Hughes. “Both of them worked their socks off – in and out of possession.

“We're going to need everyone. Everyone's going to play their part, but those two up front did their claims no harm whatsoever.

“We've got to keep that energy high and confidence high, because clearly that's in a better place now, so we need to continue in the same vein in the Premier League."
