Lambert: Brace for Saints

Rickie Lambert ended a fruitful campaign by striking a brace to take his tally to 37 for the season as Southampton beat relegated Southend 3-1.

Lambert headed an equaliser after Franck Moussa had given Southend a shock lead and then added a penalty before Adam Lallana wrapped the game up in stoppage time.

Following a disappointing opening 45 minutes, the game opened up after the break and Moussa struck his sixth of the season in the 56th minute with a fine curling effort from 20 yards into the corner of the net.

Headed home

The lead lasted just two minutes when Lambert snuck in at the near post to head in Jason Puncheon's cross.

Five minutes from time the Saints frontman was brought down inside the penalty area and placed the subsequent spot-kick into the bottom corner.

In the final minute Lallana was sent clear by Dan Harding before slotting home his 20th goal of the season.
