Saturday afternoon saw Southampton take on Huddersfield Town at St Mary's Stadium with the hosts still searching for their first win in five games.
Virgil van Dijk was left out of the Saints squad, with fellow Dutchman Wesley Hoedt filling in the space at the back.
Charlie Austin ploughed a lone furrow up top as the Saints looked to batter their way back into the match, but he was denied by the backline of the away side time and again in the early goings.
It wasn't until the 24th minute that the 28-year-old managed to make a breakthrough for the home side as he shot a point-blank range after a set piece was nodded into his path by Hoedt.
After the opener, Southampton tried to push forward on the ball for the second goal but Huddersfield weren't giving up on the fight as they countered multiple times.
In the second half Huddersfield managed to apply immense pressure as Aaron Mooy pushed forward and attempted a shot on goal.
In order to find their second goal, Southampton made impact substitutions in the form of Sofiane Boufal and Manolo Gabbiadini in order to bolster the attack.
