Southampton Unlucky Not To Get Result

Southampton were not able to defeat Swansea at St Mary's in the F.A Cup replay after the scores finished 2-1 to the Swans. Danny Graham got Swansea's first with a header and then doubled his and Swansea's tally from the penalty spot after Dan Harding fouled the striker. Craig Dawson gave Southampton a lifeline with a header after an Adam Lallana corner but it wasn't enough to beat the Welsh side as they face West Ham in the next round of the F.A Cup.

Southampton Narrowly Beat Blues

Southampton edged closer to the the Championship title with a win at home to Birmingham. In all honesty, it was a fairly dull game with just the one goal which was scored by Jordan Rhodes who slid in after Lilian Bochet's header down. You can see his goal here:Enter text for the link here...

Saints Can't Beat Bottom Doncaster

Southampton had to come from behind to draw against Doncaster. Rovers went 1-0 up through Brian Stock after Doncaster had a goal disallowed for offside. Jordan Rhodes equalised for Southampton thanks to a terrific through ball from young Iago Falque. Southampton remain top but Reading have a game in hand over the League One runners up. Doncaster Rovers are still bottom of the league.

Southampton Promoted After Win Against Derby

Billy Sharp scored his first goal in over 500 minutes of football as Southampton beat Derby County 2-0. Sharp got his first in the 20th minute and got his second in the 34th with a fine strike past goalkeeper Frank Fielding. Apart from Sharps two goals, it was a rather uneventful match. Southampton won promotion as they are top of the league with 91 points with Reading second on 88 points. The Saints won an unexpected promotion due to them being 20 points ahead of third placed West Ham who have 71 points.

Congratulations on the promotion mate. The next step now is to keep Southampton in the Premiership.

Good luck...

Reading Promoted Despite Loss

Reading have now joined Southampton in the Premier League next season despite losing to the league leaders 1-0 at St Mary's Stadium. Southampton were the favourites going in to the match and showed why when Iago Falque scored the opener and what proved to be the only goal in a somewhat disappointing match, given all the hype leading up to it.

Lallana Gets Two As Southampton Reach 100

Adam Lallana got two goals and Rickie Lambert scored a penalty as Southampton beat Brighton 3-0. Lambert opened the scoring from the spot after Jose Fonte was brought down in the box.

Southampton Crowned Champions

Southampton have won the npower Championship after a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forrest. Craig Dawson got the party started with a header after an Adam Lallana corner but Danny Higginbotham equalised from the penalty spot after Frazer Richardson brought down Ishmael Miller. Jordan Rhodes won the game and the league for Southampton though in the 66th minute. Many doubted Adam Walker's ability as manager but those doubts turned to congratulations as Southampton lifted the trophy.
