  2. FULL-TIME: More misery for Paul Lambert and Aston Villa as Southampton record their first win in five matches. They leapfrog the Midlanders, who drop into the bottom three. The decisive moment in the game came with controversy as Jay Rodriguez appeared to go over Enda Stevens' leg and fall over. Mark Halsey pointed to the spot and Rickie Lambert made no mistake.

  3. 90+4

    YELLOW CARD: Andreas Weimann finds himself in Mark Halsey's book for saying a bit too much.

  4. 90+3

    Possession changes hand about five times, before Barry Bannan is penalised.

  5. 90+2

    YELLOW CARD: We're into five minutes of stoppage time by the way and now Artur Boruc is booked for time wasting.

  6. 90+1

    BAD MISS! Gabby Agbonlahor is put clear, but Artur Boruc makes the save and the rebound falls to Christian Benteke who fails to hit the target.

  7. 90

    Jordan Bowery wins the ball in the Saints box, but his shot is deflected away after some desperate defending.

  8. 89

    OFF THE CROSSBAR! Barry Bannan's corner is headed against the woodwork by defender Nathan Baker.

  9. 88

    SAVE! Enda Stevens' cross finds Christian Benteke at the far post, but his header down is palmed away by Artur Boruc.

  10. 87

    The clock is ticking on another defeat for Villa. It's the longest home goal drought for Villa since going 318 minutes without scoring from Dec 2009 to Feb 2010.

  11. 86

    SUBSTITUTION: Well, Luke Shaw has been stretchered off and he is replaced by Steve De Ridder.

  12. 85

    Referee Mark Halsey stops the game after what seemed like a head injury on Luke Shaw. Villa players surround the man in black!

  13. 84

    Christian Benteke is felled and Bannan's free-kick is headed across goal by the Belgian, but Artur Boruc claims the ball in front of a number of players in claret and blue.

  14. 82

    SUBSTITUTION: Former Villa man Steven Davis replaces Jason Puncheon. He gets a nice round of applause from both sets of supporters.

  15. 80

    The search for that illusive goal goes on as Fabian Delph's ball finds Christian Benteke, but the big Belgian sees his curler fly just wide of the far post.

  16. 79

    SUBSTITUTION: Meanwhile, Jordan Bowery comes on for Ashley Westwood in midfield.

  17. 77

    SUBSTITUTION: Danny Fox replaces Gaston Ramirez. Seconds earlier Jason Puncheon saw his shot deflected away.

  18. 76

    Morgan Schneiderlin's tame effort is collected by Brad Guzan, but Rickie Lambert is the creator supreme once again.
