  1. 90+4

    FULL TIME: A profligate Spurs claim all three points at St Mary's after a dominating first half. Bale and Dempsey sent them on their way, but a strong second-half performance from the hosts nearly brought an equaliser. In the end, Jay Rodriguez's first goal for the club was a mere consolation

  2. 90+3

    The Saints fans are beckoning their side forward in search of that equaliser, but it all seems too late now

  3. 90+2

    On comes Michael Dawson in place of goalscorer Clint Dempsey

  4. 90+1

    Livermore booked for a poor challenge

  5. 85

    I'm not sure if Sandro meant to block that, but it's heroic if so. A thunderous effort is driven up but rebounds out off Sandro's head.

  6. 85

    Southampton are still giving it a go here, and they're flooding that Spurs half again. Numerous shots coming in, numerous shots getting blocked.

  7. 82

    AVB has attempted to take the sting out of Southampton's attack by flooding the midfield, and it's a plan that so far has worked.

  8. 79

    Rodriguez has bagged his first goal for Southampton, but he certainly wants more. Another shot flashes just wide from the young striker

  9. 78

    Sigurdsson will replace a disappointing Defoe for Spurs, while Guly do Prado and Reeves come on for Davis and Fox for Southampton

  10. 75

    And it nearly pays off with some excellent passing football. A number of intricate passes culminates in Adam Lallana breaking through. He pulls it back but no-one is there.

  11. 73

    It's backs against the wall time for Spurs as Southampton are really starting to turn the screw.

  12. 72

    Verthongen is booked for cynically pulling back Mayuka. No complaints to be had.

  13. 72

    Bale has been quiet in this second-half as Southampton regained the ascendancy, but the winger manages to get a shot away. Boruc saves easily.

  14. 71

    Yoshida deals well with an on-rushing Defoe, sliding in to regain possession with a well-timed challenge.

  15. 70

    Mayuka's ball in falls to Lambert six yards out. The ball won't fall for him though, but he still forces the corner.

  16. 68

    The Saints are marching now! A lofted ball in is poorly dealth with again, and Jay Rodriguez is inches away from an equaliser. Spurs are living on the edge here.

  17. 67

    GOAL: And there it is! Southampton are straight back in it as the corner is poorly defended by Spurs. Jay Rodriguez is on hand to finish high into the net for his first Saints goal. 2-1, and is the comeback on?

  18. 66

    The subsequent free-kick creates a havoc in the penalty area, and it very nearly ends up in the net. It's a corner though.

  19. 65

    It's a booking for Sandro as he goes in a little too tough

  20. 63

    Tom Huddlestone is replaced by Jake Livermore
