Southampton striker Rickie Lambert has his sights set on a swift charge towards the League One play-off places.

Saints have finally found some form following a tough start to the season and made it four games unbeaten with Saturday's 2-0 win over Bournemouth, in which Lambert scored twice from the penalty spot.

Nigel Adkins' side host Tranmere this weekend with Lambert targeting another three points for the pre-season title favourites.

"We've been working very hard to turn our form round," he said.

"It's starting to turn around now and we want to get as close to the play-offs as quick as we can."
