Saints score twice in quick succession to earn 2-0 Division 2 win over Stoke City at St George's Park

Jake Hesketh and Callum Slattery scored to give Southampton their first win in eight Division 2 matches, beating Stoke City 2-0 at St George's Park.

Slattery could have put the visitors ahead just before half-time but had a penalty saved by Stoke goalkeeper Jakob Haugaard.

But Hesketh gave Southampton an early second-half lead with a shot from 20 yards and Slattery made amends four minutes later.

Southampton stay ninth in the Division 2 table, nine points outside the play-off places. Stoke are 11th and winless in six matches.
