Southampton defender Jack Stephens admits they must address their home form as they prepare to face Newcastle.
The south coast club have made a slow start to the campaign, claiming just six points from nine Premier League outings after playing out a goalless draw at Bournemouth on Saturday.
Their home form has once again been an issue and they are without a win at St Mary’s in the Premier League this season, while they have only tasted victory on their own patch once in the last 15 engagements.
Southampton next play in front of their own fans on Saturday when struggling Newcastle come to town and Stephens has demanded a performance.

Stephens said: “It’s a home game, in front of our fans, and we’re aware we haven’t won at home this season yet.
“So we need to give them something to cheer about, and we need to get three points.
“Maybe we haven’t got what we’ve deserved in games, but the table doesn’t lie. Things haven’t quite gone for us.
“We need the fans at home, you could hear them [at Bournemouth] and they make such a difference.”
