Stunt backfires as Saints claim precious 1-0 win.

The Swansea Marriott hotel cancelled Southampton’s 40-room booking just before their relegation six-pointer at the Liberty Stadium in an apparent attempt to handicap them for a crucial relegation six-pointer.

Saints were forced to stay in a hotel 40 miles outside of Swansea after the Marriott informed them their reservation had been scrapped due to a supposed “virus” at the hotel.

However, the hotel’s stunt backfired when Manolo Gabbiadini’s 72nd minute goal left Carlos Carvahal’s Swans three point adrift of safety with one game remaining.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes joked the cancellation did his side a favour, describing the Swansea Marriott as one of the worst hotels his side have to stay at.

As you can see from all these jokes, he was far from the only one cracking wise:
