  1. The travelling Sunderland fans are delighted. Thank you for joining me and please do so again.

  2. It is difficult to say that Sunderland do not deserve their victory, as they were resolute and limited Southampton to half-chances. Southampton fans will have expected to win this afternoon, and the side's performance was not up to scratch.

  3. That's full time. 1-0 to Sunderland it finishes.

  4. 90+3

    Guly fires wide and wins a corner. Just looked like a poor effort to me

  5. 90+2

    Wonderful block from Campbell from Ramirez. Fantastic effort

  6. 90+1

    Sunderland still defending the high ball brilliantly

  7. 90

    We will have four extra minutes

  8. 90

    Clyne blazes over from 30 yards, really poor decision making from the youngster

  9. 89

    Sessegnon off for David Vaughan

  10. 88

    Southampton have been forced into pushing the ball up to Rickie Lambert, and the striker wins a corner.

  11. 85

    Sessegnon is caught offside for Sunderland, which causes the crowd to urge their side forward for the push for an equaliser. The players, again, fail to respond with fluid passing

  12. 83

    Sunderland are actually on the attack more than their hosts, which is incredibly frustrating for Nigel Adkins

  13. 81

    Lambert Fouls O'Shea, and Southampton move into the last ten mintues without yet creating a golden opportunity

  14. 80

    Puncheon replaced by Guly

  15. 79

    Phil Bardsley booked for a poor challenge from behind on De Ridder

  16. 77

    Kelvin Davis saves a Gardner free kick, and the ball almost does a 'Taibi' and creeps through the legs of the keeper. He smiles in relief!

  17. 75

    Johnson replaced by Campbell. Johnson looks to have a knock

  18. 74

    Have to say, Gaston Ramirez has not looked a £12million player this afternoon. Often wasteful in possession

  19. 72

    Puncheon breaks through, but typically of his side so far today just lacks conviction when in a dangerous area

  20. 71

    The rain is absolutely teaming down, the worst of the game so far. It's just making things even more difficult
