9:42pm

HULL 0 SAINTS 1

9:41pm

Saints: Steven Davis off, Victor Wanyama on (90+2 mins).

9:39pm

CHANCE (90 mins): After Artur Boruc saves Sone Aluko's low shot, Jack Cork comes so close to his first ever Saints goal. The midfielder hits a fierce shot from 25 yards, but the ball slams against the post and away to safety.

9:36pm

Saints: Adam Lallana off, James Ward-Prowse on (88 mins).

9:36pm

CHANCE (87 mins): Luke Shaw's low angled drive from just outside the area is saved brilliantly by Steve Harper. Guly do Prado reacts quickly at the back post to turn the rebound goalwards, but Curtis Davies makes a wonderful late block to stop the ball crossing the line.

9:31pm

Morgan Schneiderlin booked for a trip on Sone Aluko (82 mins).

9:26pm

Saints: Rickie Lambert off, Guly do Prado on (77 mins).

9:24pm

Hull: David Meyler and Maynor Figueroa off, Sone Aluko and Robbie Brady on (75 mins).

9:19pm

Basingstoke Gazette:

HULL 0 SAINTS 1 (Jose Fonte 69)

Steve Harper makes a brilliant double save, first from Fonte's header and then from Adam Lallana's shot. Fonte then forces the rebound goalwards and, although it's cleared from the goalmouth, the referee receives the signal from the Goal Decision System to say that the ball crossed the line. Rickie Lambert nets the follow up, just to be certain, but it's Fonte's goal.

9:05pm

Basingstoke Gazette:

CHANCE (56 mins): Steven Davis slides a little pass into the area that picks out Rickie Lambert. He's going away from goal, but manages to fire in a low effort towards the far corner. Steve Harper gets down well to make the save, though.

9:03pm

This is the shot from Jelavic just before half time that was saved by Boruc...

Basingstoke Gazette:

8:57pm

Jose Fonte booked for a late tackle on George Boyd (48 mins).

8:52pm

Jose Fonte closes down a shot from George Boyd...

8:51pm

The second half is underway.

8:36pm

HULL 0 SAINTS 0

8:35pm

Luke Shaw cautioned for a late tackle on Ahmed Elmohamady (45+2 mins).

8:30pm

Jack Cork and Steven Davis chase down Maynor Figueroa...

Basingstoke Gazette:

8:29pm

CHANCE (42 mins): Nikica Jelavic controls a ball that's sent in towards the edge of the area. He works his way past two Saints players and into some space, but his stab towards goal lacks power and Artur Boruc saves comfortably.

8:18pm

CHANCE (31 mins): After a lull in the game, Jay Rodriguez goes close to opening the scoring. His curling effort from 25 yards beats Stephen Harper, but it hits the bar and goes over.

8:02pm

CHANCE (14 mins): Saints clear a long thrown into their area out to Ahmed Elmohamady. He swings in a cross from deep, which is met by the head of Shane Long just inside the box. The striker's glancing effort towards the far corner beats Artur Boruc's dive, but comes back off the post, as Saints escape.

8:00pm

Paul McShane is carried off on a stretcher, and is replaced by George Boyd (12 mins).

7:56pm

CHANCE (8 mins): Another big chance for Saints, and Rickie Lambert again has his head in his hands. Steven Davis plays a superb through ball that picks out the striker's run. Lambert's first touch isn't great, taking the ball a little wide, and he is unable to dink it over the on-rushing Stephen Harper. Both Harper and Paul McShane require treatment after being injured trying to prevent Lambert scoring.

7:52pm

CHANCE (5 mins): Rickie Lambert has his head in his hands, and understandably so. Calum Chambers' clever pass sets Adam Lallana away down the right, with the midfielder's cross deflecting into the path of Lambert 12 yards out. He takes a touch to move the ball into space, then fires a right-foot shot towards the top corner. Everyone expects the ball to hit the back of the net, but it flies just wide of the post.

7:45pm

Referee Martin Atkinson gets the match underway.

7:42pm

The teams are out here at the KC Stadium. Kick-off just about five minutes away now.

7:17pm

Basingstoke Gazette: Maya Yoshida

Maya Yoshida has started Saints' last three Premier League matches at centre half, following an injury to Dejan Lovren. It has been a welcome return to action for the Japanese international, who was barely used in the first half of the season. With the World Cup this summer, first-team football is important for Yoshida, but the 24-year-old insists he never considered leaving Saints in January.

 

No. The stadium, the club are fantastic. My dream is to play in the Premier League and have success here. Why would I play half a season then go to another club or another country? That’s crazy.

Maya Yoshida

Basingstoke Gazette: steve bruce

Hull City have taken four points from their last two matches, to move up to 11th in the table. They have been strong at home this season, losing just three times on their own patch. They have also been outstanding defensively at the KC Stadium, conceding just nine goals - with Arsenal the only team in the division to boast a better defensive record at home. Saints did put four past them at St Mary's earlier this season, though. Hull's manager, Steve Bruce, said that performance was the best his side had come up against all season, but he has warned Saints it will be no easy task for them tonight.

 

They probably gave the best performance of any side we’ve faced this season. It was our hardest game of the season down there. We got our backsides kicked, particularly in the first half, we were all over the place. We’ve got to defend better but I think we’re a different proposition now than we were three months ago. They were excellent on that day, the best side we’ve played this season. I’ve said it before but they’ve got three or four players who can go and play at the highest level, the absolute highest level.

Steve Bruce

6:55pm

Basingstoke Gazette:

Earlier in the season, Saints ran out 4-1 winners against tonight's oppponents, with Steven Davis amongst the scorers.

6:49pm

Only one change for Saints from the team that drew 2-2 with Stoke at the weekend with Calum Chambers replacing Nathaniel Clyne at right back.

Basingstoke Gazette: Calum Chambers

Well, we've had our ups and downs this season and I really think 7th or 8th would be a fair reflection of our overall play. We're not consistent or clinical enough to be higher but our performances against everyone deserve no lower. Only Chelsea have dominated and that was only for parts of the games. If we want to achieve it we need to win games like this one.

Greetings from Strasbourg. Hoping for a win tonight but that's a big ask. How's the weather in Hull this evening? That, the pitch and the improvements that Hull have made these past few weeks will all make it tough. But, I'll go with 3-1 to Saints.

Totally on the mark…we cannot turn quality possesion into wins and like it or not that is the name of the game..

..Uni-ted conistantly won the league of the back of undeserved wins..undeserved if you count run of play,chances etc however that IS the mark of champions ie a sniff of a chance and bang it's a goal…

We are better than 90% of the teams at possession and pressing nonetheless all but Newcastle above us are better at winning….so fellow Saints we have an interesting journey.

I feel that ALL our players will except Luke Shaw (going to Chelsea) will see out another year if MoPo stays to see out the Saints project, if they can get to the Champions league then why leave..my fear is Mo Po going this year or failure to qualify for the CL in 2015...

Probably. Don't forget, the one he pulled wide would have been blasted over or straight at a covering defender by most strikers. It was Rickie's vision to take a touch into space that created the clearer chance. Hard for me to tell on my screen but I also thought it might have clipped a defender's tackling foot as he hit it, and it was that that took it wide. As for the second one, I thought he might have got a shot in quicker but between them McShane & Harper covered brilliantly. Hope McShane wasn't too badly injured.

Not a bad half, both teams could have scored.

From today's "Daily Express";

Southampton's St Mary’s was more than a fifth empty for the 2-2 draw with Stoke. It’s only been full once this season.
Meanwhile, Portsmouth, struggling near the foot of League Two, are averaging a remarkable 15,000. Easy to see where the loyalty and passion is in Hampshire.

What is your point?

Our stadium holds nearly 33,000 people, our average crowd is about 29,000 (nearly double what you get), giving us spare capacity for the big games.

Sounds like a very sensible arrangement to me.

Don't bother, LH. We all know that the last time we averaged ONLY 15,000 was back in the days at the Dell.

I'm more concerned about Martin Atkinson, whose good game when we played Arsenal is rapidly being evened out.

28000 out of 32000 isn't one fifth empty anyway. Take out the missing Stoke fans, there were probably only 2000 home seats still available. Still, I guess the truth & facts are not well acquainted with a Skunt.

Meanwhile, Portsmouth, struggling near the foot of League Two, are averaging a remarkable 15,000. Easy to see where the loyalty and passion is in Hampshire.

What is your point?

Our stadium holds nearly 33,000 people, our average crowd is about 29,000 (nearly double what you get), giving us spare capacity for the big games.

Sounds like a very sensible arrangement to me.
Don't bother, LH. We all know that the last time we averaged ONLY 15,000 was back in the days at the Dell.

I'm more concerned about Martin Atkinson, whose good game when we played Arsenal is rapidly being evened out.
28000 out of 32000 isn't one fifth empty anyway. Take out the missing Stoke fans, there were probably only 2000 home seats still available. Still, I guess the truth & facts are not well acquainted with a Skunt.

Fantastic win in very tough conditions. What Hull lacked in quality, they made up for in effort and a fair bit of muscle. We also had a fair amount of decisions go against us - thankfully, not the awarded corner that led to the goal. At first, I thought the lino had given a goal kick

The defence was superb tonight. As a unit, they edged my 'men of the match' ahead of the 3 musketeers. Hard to name just one MotM, though. Jose for keeping Long quiet and his part(s) in the goal?

Absolute rubbish, 1) the express can not do their maths as st Mary's had over 27,000 so it was not 1/5 empty, 2) st Mary's has been full more than once this season and is already sold out for Liverpool, a lot of the media will not give saints the credit they deserve, 8th in the league

From the BBC:

Hull City boss Steve Bruce on Paul McShane's injury: "The X-rays are clear. His ankle is in a horrible position. We expect ligament damage - we'll find out how bad the injury is tomorrow. It disrupted us for a while."
On the game: "Southampton are an excellent side. We had to be at our best and we weren't. We went too long and direct to our strikers too often.
"We have to be honest - the better team won."

I have to say, Steve Bruce is a refreshingly honest manager. I would rather they stayed up than several of the other teams down there.
