Ralph Hasenhüttl says confidence is high among his players following the Premier League win at Leicester, but that they have already moved on from that game as they look to secure progress into the next round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Saints host Derby County in a replay on Wednesday night, as both sides bid to earn the right to visit Accrington Stanley in the fourth round, with the match kicking off a big double-header at home, as Everton also visit on Saturday.

leicester is gone, we have the three points and now we are focusing on a very tough week.

"It was an important win for us," said Hasenhüttl, reflecting on the 2-1 success at King Power Stadium over the weekend.

"We spoke about that once again on Sunday, as a team. We congratulated them on a very passionate game, with good mentality.

"No one expected us to win after the red card from Valery, but then we put this game away because it is gone and we have the three points and now we are focusing on a very tough week with a replay against Derby and a very important game against Everton – both games at home and both games we want to win.

"Now the games are coming where we have to win and we have to consistently take points.

"We have showed against the good teams we can do it, and also the teams who are in our zone, and that will be important for the next weeks, because we are facing opponents in our zone, so those will be the most important games, six-point games, but first we are focusing on the FA Cup and then on the home game against Everton."
