  1. Thanks for following today's action with me. Stay tuned for report, reaction and ratings.

  2. That's it. Southampton deservedly beat QPR 3-1 and pile misery on Mark Hughes while lifting some of the pressure off their own boss, Nigel Adkins.

  3. 'Is that it for Mark Hughes? He's 1/4 to be the first Premier League manager to go with victory surely beyond the Hoops now.'

  4. 89

    The excellent Lambert is given an ovation by the away supporters as he makes way for Jay Rodriguez.

  5. 88

    As Southampton retain possession, a banner is unfurled among the QPR fans: 'HARRY, COME AND SAVE US'.

  6. 83

    Southampton work a short corner and QPR fail to respond. Lallana drives in and delivers a low cross to the far post, which Ferdinand diverts into his own net. Woeful defending, but Saints deserve it.

  7. 82


  8. 80

    QPR win a corner, which lands on the head of Nelsen, but he can only direct his effort straight at Gazzaniga. Good chance for the centre-back.

  9. 79

    Off the line! Yoshida chests down Lambert's nod back before acrobatically volleying towards goal, but a QPR body blocks on the line. Saints may regret not putting the hosts out of sight.

  10. 74

    One for each side: Fabio replaces Bosingwa for QPR; Teenager Shaw - impressive throughout - comes off for Danny Fox

  11. 73

    Great save by Julio Cesar! Puncheon dribbles around the left side of the QPR defence and unleashes a low drive which the keeper does brilliantly to get down and touch around the far post.

  12. 70

    Shaun Derry replaces Diakite for QPR. Mark Hughes is clearly concerned about his side's midfield balance.

  13. Lallana delivers, but Ferdinand climbs highest to head away. QPR can't keep it for long though.

  14. 69

    Bosingwa booked for handball on the corner of the QPR box. Dangerous free-kick to come...

  15. 68

    Puncheon almost atones for his miss with a rasping 20-yard drive but, again, the ball whizzes beyond the far post. Saints gaining control once more.

  16. 66

    Great chance for Southampton! Schneiderlin lifts the ball to the far post, from where Lambert nods the ball down to Puncheon, who has time to compose himself but still drags his shot wide of the far post.

  17. 64

    A moment of genius from Taarabt - a fine tackle followed by a nutmeg - comes to nothing as his cross drifts beyond the far post.

  18. 61

    Steven Davis replaces playmaker Ramirez as Nigel Adkins looks to stiffen up the Southampton midfield.

  19. 60

    Mackie's clever pass inside the box is cleared by a Southampton defender as Hoilett prepared to pounce. Neat play from hosts.

  20. 58

    Ramirez wants a penalty for a perceived push by Traore at the far post as a cross drifts over his head, but play is rightly waved on.
