Mauricio Pochettino will need to guide Southampton to five more victories to ensure safety against relegation.

For a few minutes last Saturday, Southampton looked destined to give Mauricio Pochettino his first victory as manager of the Saints and to gain three vital points in the table.

That possibility came crashing down when Wigan's Shaun Maloney tapped in a loose ball in the 90th minute to give the Latics a late equalizer. 

With 13 matches to go, Southampton sit in 16th place in the Premier League table, just three points and a few goals above 18th-place Wigan, who sit in the final relegation spot. Saints currently have 24 points, about 16 short of what will be needed to safely survive the drop at the end of the season.
