Southampton's cheeky review of trip to Swansea after 'dark arts' room cancellation

Perhaps it was mere coincidence, but suspicions were raised when Southampton travelled to Swansea on Tuesday for their crucial relegation face-off, only to find their prematch preparations had been derailed.

However, Hughes' team defied the multiple setbacks to escape...
