MAURICIO Pellegrino hopes the 3-2 comeback win at West Bromwich Albion can build bridges between him and the fans.

Pellegrino was subject to chants of 'you're getting sacked in the morning' from the away end at The Hawthorns after Saints went 1-0 down early on through Ahmed Hagazi's goal.

However, after Saints sealed a thrilling 3-2 comeback win thanks to Mario Lemina, Jack Stephens and James Ward-Prowse's goals, the under-pressure 46-year-old boss hopes he can have a better relationship with the supporters.

He said: “Yes, for sure. This is victory is everyone at the club, for the fans, for our employer.

"In our club you must breathe togetherness always even in difficult situations and we try to work together to show we can win games.

“This win, they can enjoy.”

Pellegrino was pleased with new £19.2m club-record signing Guido Carrillo on his first start for Saints.

The 6ft3in Argentine, who arrived from Monaco in the January transfer window, put in a good shift and was a focal point for the team and tested Ben Foster with a near post effort from Ryan Bertrand's cross.

Pellegrino said: “I think he was right. It wasn’t easy for him because West Brom are one of the biggest teams in the Premier League in how they play. They are really strong.

“I think he supported the ball well. He was always in the box trying to be dangerous. He did well.”
