Hughes urges calm ahead of Swans clash

After Southampton conceded a last-gasp equaliser to Everton on Saturday, Hughes has asked his players to show a bit more composure.

However, after picking up just four points from a possible 30, Tony Pulis was sacked two days after losing 4-0 at home to Chelsea and was replaced by Gary Megson, who temporarily took charge of two games.

Southampton's superior goal difference would put them all but officially safe should they leave South Wales with three points, while Swansea will edge to within touching distance of safety should they prove victorious, with one game left to play.

Crucially, Hughes' men look a threat in front of goal and, although still vulnerable at the back, there has been improvement in recent weeks. "We will give that one a go as well, but clearly the Swansea one is one that we can really decide our own fate". "This is the way", Carvalhal said.

A result for Swansea this evening would ease their worries of a return to the Championship - a galling prospect for fans after Cardiff City sealed promotion on Sunday - particularly if Chelsea beat Huddersfield Town tomorrow night.

Yet Carvalhal is convinced that home advantage will make all the difference in turning around this parlous situation with Swansea enjoying their last two matches at the Liberty Stadium against Southampton and doomed Stoke on Sunday.

Moore has had a barnstorming start as West Brom's caretaker boss following the sacking of Alan Pardew and hopes to be hired on a permanent basis this summer.

"Possibly the Cup game was the game that was hard for us".

'This has caused Mark Hughes and the team a huge inconvenience and we can only think that someone somewhere wants to make life as hard as possible for us ahead of this game. As per our normal procedures, we notified large group bookings in order for them to find alternative accommodations, should they choose to do so.

"So if you achieve this situation and have the things in your hands, you can do it. This is the main point and the players know about that".

"This is an important game", he conceded.
