Second-half turnaround sees Wolves gain revenge over Southampton

Pedro Neto TEAMtalk

Wolves scored twice in the second-half to come from a goal down and beat Southampton 2-1 in their Premier League clash at St Mary’s.

Just three days after suffering an FA Cup exit at the hands of Saints at Molineux, a Ruben Neves penalty and a Pedro Neto strike earned them victory on the south coast.

Danny Ings blasted home on the volley to put Saints 1-0 up in the 25th minute, converting a smart Stuart Armstrong cross.

Former Celtic man Armstrong cut down the left and stood up a teasing ball, allowing Ings to stride onto the centre and fire into the corner of the net.

Wolves were level just after the break when Ryan Bertrand handled inside his own penalty area, with Neves sweeping home from the spot.

And the match was turned on its head in the 65th minute when the visitors went in front through a fierce Neto strike.

The winger received the ball inside the penalty, left Jannik Vestergaard flat-footed before firing past Alex McCarthy from an angle.

The win moved the visitors above Saints into 12th spot in the Premier League table.
