Selles insists he is positive about the last four games, although relegation now seems almost certain.
Armel Bella-Kotchap also says the team needs to keep their heads up to have a chance, but admits it wasn’t enough.
Everton, with 29 points, and Leicester City drew 2-2 last night, meaning Saints are five points clear of their closest rivals.
They are still six out of safety for 24 overall, while three teams including Leicester have 30 out of their last four.
Even if all three of those teams win – that is, the Saints lose at Nottingham Forest – mathematically speaking, it’s not over yet.
However, they are still without defender Romain Perrault as the Frenchman sent a message to fans about his injury.
James Ward-Prowse was reportedly watched by Tottenham Hotspur scouts at St. James Park on Sunday while his future was up in the air.
It’s a tough time being a Saints supporter, but we really appreciate you following us – thanks for everything, we hope it gets better.
