Steven Davis is hopeful Southampton’s return to winning ways will give them the confidence boost they need to be more clinical in front of goal.

Saints dominated for long periods against West Brom at St Mary’s, but would have to wait until the 85th minute to make the breakthrough after several chances went unconverted.

Eventually it was substitute Sofiane Boufal who made the difference with a sublime individual goal to break the visitors’ resistance.

“We’ve found goals to hard come by of late, but the goal was worthy of winning any match,” Davis said.

“We need to be a little bit more clinical when we get into those positions, but overall it was a good performance.

“We controlled the game for large parts and luckily we got the winner in the end.

“Whenever you’re not scoring too many goals you snap at chances or you think too much about them.

“When you’re scoring freely it just comes a little bit more naturally.

“That will do our confidence the world of good.”
