Southampton has progressed to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup thanks to a 2-1 fifth-round win over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

And Pardew, who left Jonny Evans and Gareth Barry in the starting line-up despite their involvement in the late night incident, was asked if his team were still backing him.

"In the first half I thought we looked a little bit edgy and Southampton did well in that period".

The second half proved that. They were called into the police station about a crime of vehicle theft and made statements.

Myhill was named on the bench and Livermore was absent.

Eight Premier League gaffers have already been axed this season, including former West Brom manager Tony Pulis, and now Pardew is in real danger of extending that tally to nine.

'It was a problem in terms of selection to go with my strongest team given the events of last week but Jonny was actually very good given the circumstances.

On the decision to name Gareth McAuley as captain, replacing Evans for today, Pardew added: "We changed the captaincy to Gareth because that was the right thing to do". "We freely acknowledge and apologise for the break of curfew which we accept represented a breach of the standards of professionalism required of us as representatives of West Bromwich Albion FC", said the statement signed by Evans, 30; Barry, 36; Livermore, 28; and Myhill, 35. But before, if I knew there was not going to be an incident, would have I gone?

After reports of the "stolen taxi" emerged, Pardew admitted that he's "disappointed" with the four players in question.

Southampton stood strong and held a 1-2 lead, earning them a trip to the victor of the Wigan/Manchester City game on Monday night.

"I think the club is clear that it wants to investigate it properly and we want to concentrate on the game tomorrow".

"It was hard to go 2-0 down in the circumstances we're under and I think anybody who was here today will see that was a proper fight and a proper effort".
