Mark Hughes has been left furious by the hotel cancellation
Southampton have been left enraged by the last-minute cancellation of the hotel rooms they had booked ahead of their relegation six-pointer against Swansea.
The Saints visit the south coast of Wales this evening hoping to claim a valuable victory that would move them three points clear of Carlos Carvalhal’s side heading into the final day of the season; Mark Hughes’ men have a vastly superior goal difference so victory will almost guarantee top flight survival for another year.

Southampton’s preparations including booking 40 rooms at the Swansea Marriott, but they have been forced to relocated to the Glamorgan Hotel 40 miles away due to the Marriott cancelling their booking.
The Sun say Saints were told the rooms were cancelled due to a virus that has hit the hotel, though the Marriott was still taking bookings on Monday; it is believed Swansea had nothing to do with the cancellation.
A victory for either side would all-but relegate the other, whilst also sending West Brom down to the Championship. The visitors enter the game in better form, with one win and two draws in their last three matches, while Swansea have lost each of their previous three fixtures.
