Southampton 0-2 Brentford: Ivan Toney and Yoane Wissa power Bees to third away victory of season | Football News


Southampton fell to their eighth home loss of the season against buoyant Brentford as a simple Ivan Toney tap-in and a late Yoane Wissa strike were enough to earn a 2-0 victory at a rain-soaked St Mary’s.

The weather reflected the sombre mood on another damaging night for Ruben Selles’ side, who only registered one lacklustre shot on target, and were reminiscent of a team blighted by relegation fear.

Brentford, registering their third away win of the Premier League season, found the net once in each half to ensure maximum points, with Toney opening the scoring in the 32nd minute and Wissa safeguarding the win with a breakaway goal in second-half stoppage time.

Southampton’s home record continues to be the worst in the league, in spite of a much-improved second period and a 67 per cent share of the possession, leaving them two points adrift of safety at the foot of the table.
