Mauricio Pochettino is adamant that Southampton are good enough to avoid relegation but feels they must work on defending set-pieces.
The recently installed Saints boss was left frustrated on Saturday as his side came from a goal down at Wigan to lead 2-1 thanks to strikes from Rickie Lambert and Morgan Schneiderlin.
However, a 90th-minute effort from Shaun Maloney rescued a point for the hosts to deny them a much-needed win.
It leaves Pochettino with two draws and a defeat - at Manchester United - from his first three games, but he feels the side is good enough to survive in the Premier League as they currently sit three points above the relegation places.
He told the Echo: "This team is good enough for this league."
On conceding two goals from corners, Pochettino added: "I am frustrated the same as the rest of the boys because the team played a great match.
The effort that the team put into it they deserved the victory.
"We could have had two victories and one draw (since he took charge). Work is what we've got to do.
"We will work on things during the week and in the future we have to work on set pieces."
