Southampton boss Mark Wotte is now praying for a "miracle" as his struggling side attempt to beat the drop this season.
Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday left Saints on the brink of relegation to League One - they are now three points from safety lying second from bottom with two games remaining.
"I was very disappointed about the result and we need a miracle to stay up now because we need to get six points and rely on other results in the last two games," said Wotte.
"I told everybody to look in the mirror and look at their own performances before they blame someone else, but for some reason too many players did not play their best game."
