Goals from Ryan Seager and Alfie Jones ended Southampton's four-match losing streak in Division 1 as they beat Leicester City 2-0.

Seager converted Olufela Olomola's pass for the opener and Jones headed the second to move the Saints up to seventh with a four-point cushion above the relegation zone.

Goalkeeper Mouez Hassen also made his first appearance since his January loan move to Southampton from French side Nice. 

The battle against relegation is tightening up in Division 1. Saints are five points above Leicester, who are now bottom - two points adrift of safety - after Derby County's 5-3 win over Manchester United.
