Ings, who joined the Saints on loan from Liverpool in the summer, scored his second goal of the campaign in the 47th minute after latching on to a pass from Cedric Soares.
Football pundit Robbie Savage also gave his reaction on Twitter:

The Saints should have gone 2-0 up on the hour mark, but Charlie Austin missed a penalty.
However, in the dying seconds of the match, Hojbjerg scored for the visitors to put the game beyond any doubt.
It was an end to end game, with Southampton registering 19 shots of which they managed to keep six on target.
