Milwall Unlucky Not to Get Result At Home
Southampton demolished Milwall but the scoreline didn't reflect Milwall's efforts. The Lions went in front twice at The Den but Southampton came back twice to win 5-2. Dany N'Guessan scored against his former club inside the first minute but Rickie Lambert equalised from the spot after Jack Robinson fouled and got a yellow card for his troubles. Andy Keogh then put Southampton behind again when he scored thanks to Kelvin Davis' mistake but that man Lambert scored for a second time after Jack Robinson was sent off for a second yellow card. Rickie Lambert then got his third goal to put Saints in front for the first time in the match. Rudi Skacel scored a fine strike from the edge of the area, keeping goalie David Forde off guard. Jordan Rhodes then topped it off with his first goal since returning from an injury that kept him out of contention for three weeks.

Final Score: Milwall 2-5 Southampton
Managers thoughts: I thought it was another brilliant performance from the lads tonight and Rickie (Lambert) has got his second hat-trick of the season which is unbelievable. Rudi (Skacel) also scored an absolute cracker which he is delighted about and also Jordan (Rhodes) is very happy that he got on the scoresheet today. I only have one negative which is that we didn't keep a clean sheet which was slightly disappointing.
