southampton-relegation Southampton will be relegated from the Championship after being docked 10 points by the Football League.

The penalty comes after the club’s parent company went into administration at the start of April.
Southampton are currently four points off safety with two games to go and, even if they beat the drop, they will be deducted 10 points.
If they do not avoid finishing in the bottom three then the points penalty will take effect next season.
The south-coast outfit had hoped to avoid the punishment as they argued that it it’s parent company Southampton Leisure Holdings plc had gone into administration.
But a League investigation by “forensic accountants” found that the club and the holding company are “inextricably linked as one economic entity” and applied their mandatory penalty.This will be very sad news for all saints fans and the lastest hard work by staff and stars to keep them up this week.

The ruling therefore effectively relegates the club, who beat Cardiff City at the St Mary’s home earlier this season, with the team needing to clamber out of the bottom three to avoid starting next season in League One with minus 10 points
