Mauricio Pellegrino has underlined the importance of togetherness ahead of next Saturday's big Premier League clash at home to Stoke City.

Saints head into the match in 16th position in the Premier League, following the 1-1 draw at Burnley over the weekend, with their opponents just two places and one point behind them.

A win at St Mary's would provide a huge boost for Pellegrino's team ahead of the final weeks of the season, while anything less could see them slip back into the bottom three.

The Saints boss has called on his players to make sure they leave nothing in reserve and for the supporters to help make it as difficult a day as possible for Stoke.

"We need togetherness from every single fan, from every single player, to be together, to try to play our football and to be brave in character," he said.

"We have to think about us, about how we can improve in different aspects, and we have to go forward.

"We have to put everything on the pitch, try to finish empty with our energy and give 100 per cent."
