Southampton boss Alan Pardew has called on his side to build on this season's positives and push for promotion next term.
Saints are likely to be among the League One title favourites next season after reaching the fringes of the play-offs despite a 10-point deduction for going into administration.
"We've built. It was a slow process because we had a psychological problem at the start and we had a team that wasn't functioning well," said Pardew.
"Through it all, I think we have come through with flying colours in terms of the group. Now the important thing is to go again."
