Thanks for joining us for the coverage of the game.

9:39pm

That's five wins from five for Saints in pre-season.

It was a comfortable victory and well deserved

9:38pm

BRIGHTON 1 SAINTS 3

9:37pm

Two minutes of stoppage time being played

9:37pm

Late chnage for Saints as Jose Fonte appears to have cramp and is replaced by Jack Stephens

9:35pm

CHANCE (89 MINS)

The ball breaks to Pelle on the half volley on the corner of the six yard box but he fires well over the bar

9:33pm

We are into the final five minutes at the Amex Stadium.

Maksimenko fired into the side netting, otherwise no sign of a Brighton comeback here

9:21pm

That was the first goal Saints have conceded in pre-season

9:21pm

BRIGHTON 1 SAINTS 3 (74 MINS)

Saints play out poorly from the back and LuaLua takes advatange, cutting inside Clyne and firing in a shot that takes a nick off the Saints defender and goes in

9:12pm

Change for Saints as Jack Cork comes on for Wanyama

Brighton have brought on Buckley and Agustien

9:10pm

BRIGHTON 0 SAINTS 3 (63 MINS)

James Ward-Prowse wins possession and unleashes a sliced shot from 25 yards that flies into the top corner. What a goal

9:08pm

CHANCE (61 MINS)

Like the first half it's been a quiet opeeing but Steven Davis shows wonderful technique to hit a volley from 20 yards out that is straight at Stockdale

8:52pm

The game is underway again

8:52pm

Changes for Saints at half time as Kelvin Davis and Matt Targett come on for Boruc and Bertrand.

For Brighton Saltor, Dunk, LuaLua and Mackail-Smith all come on

8:32pm

BRIGHTON 0 SAINTS 2

8:31pm

BRIGHTON 0 SAINTS 2 (44 MINS)

Pelle hits a shot on the turn that is blocked in the area by a Brighton defender and the ball falls to Steven Davis who calmly sidefoots home from 12 yards out

8:29pm

As we approach half time Saints are in total control of this game.

Brighton have failed to create a single chance.

Saints look the more likely

8:13pm

CHANCE (26 MINS)

Lloyd Isgrove gets to the left by-line and cuts it back to Steven Davis who brings it under control and buys himself a yard for a low shot but a good save with his legs by Stockdale

8:11pm

By the way Gaston Ramirez is missing after picking up a minor knock

8:10pm

CHANCE (24 MINS)

Ward-Prowse tries his luck from 25 yards. It's well struck but straight at Stockdale

8:09pm

CHANCE (22 MINS)

Saints looking very effective down the right with Clyne's cross being met first time by Tadic but it goes off target

8:07pm

BRIGHTON 0 SAINTS 1 (19 MINS)

Jose Fonte plays the ball into the feet of Tadic on the edge of the area with his back to goal, the Serb turns quickly and drills in a low shot which beats Stockdale at his near post

8:04pm

CHANCE (17 MINS)

Clyne on the overlap gets in a low cross from the right which is met at the near post by Pelle but Stockdale does well to smother his flicked shot

8:02pm

It's been a low key start to the game.

Both teams look pretty well organised and competitive but not too much cooking in the final third

8:01pm

CHANCE (14 MINS)

First shot on target of the game as Jake Forster-Caskey curls a 20 yard free kick straight into the arms of Artur Boruc

7:47pm

The game is underway

7:44pm

The teams are coming out onto the pitch.

Brighton are playing in the brightest organge shirts you have ever seen. Saints in their away kit with yellow shorts. An interesting choice from both

7:43pm

Morgan Schneiderlin is not involved tonight, but that was always the plan as he only reported back for pre-season work at the weekend following his extended spell away at the World Cup with France

7:42pm

It's a lovely evening in Brighton, with an immaculate looking pitch and we are just awaiting the arrival of the players

7:40pm

I'd like to think that's a good sign - if we really are still aiming high I'm sorry but the likes of Hoover and Billy aren't the future. Good pros, have played their part in the story, but no. Would love us to go big on a bid for benteke - his injury and slightly disappointing season may give us a once-only chance to land him by putting the big clubs off. 20-25M should do it - less than an unfit Luke Shaw.

I'd like to think that's a good sign - if we really are still aiming high I'm sorry but the likes of Hoover and Billy aren't the future. Good pros, have played their part in the story, but no. Would love us to go big on a bid for benteke - his injury and slightly disappointing season may give us a once-only chance to land him by putting the big clubs off. 20-25M should do it - less than an unfit Luke Shaw.
Good shouts on all counts but just thought he (BS) would get a bit of game time in the friendlies
J7 we all love and have a lot of respect for billy, but if Ronnie doesn't see him in his plans it wouldn't make any sense to play him in the last few friendlies.
hope we can find a decent team that is willing to give him a proper go if we aren't going to use him.
Love Billy, top bloke. I just feel if he was going to make it in the Prem he needed to follow Sir Rickies example and take his fitness to ridiculous levels. Would love to see us loan or sell him to Nige at Reading where he could he a hero. Not sure there's room for another saints manager in the league though - we already have Ron, Poch, Pards, Nige 1 and Arry.

Liverpool pulled out of the deal to sign Loic Remy after it was revealed he wasn't a Southampton player.

did anyone notice gerrards comments today where he said he told suarez not to sign for arsenil last summer? he told him he was `too good for them`. bet arsenil players and fans loved that!
so do people now think that he hasn't had a word in the ears of liarlanna and lambert?

She said, "Do you like avocado?"
I said, "No, sorry love, I don't drive."

If he was too good for Arsenal why the hell did he stay at Thievingskiverpool. He was much to good for them.

Clyne having a stormer. Makes the Chambers deal make sense. Could have a 16million pound player in a position we need it rather than on the bench.


I wrote this beforehand. That comment was one of irony as I just got through saying how amazing he is when it happened. I agree he should have gone.
