Southampton's Dan Harding

Leeds' promotion hopes suffered a setback as Dan Harding's first-half goal gave Southampton victory over Simon Grayson's side.

Harding capped a dominant first-half display with a tap-in after good work by Rickie Lambert and Jason Puncheon.

Puncheon had earlier hit the post, and at the break Grayson moved to stabilise in defence by introducing Leigh Bromby.

Leeds improved, but came no closer to an equaliser than an injury-time Robert Snodgrass effort that went just wide.


Southampton manager Alan Pardew told BBC Radio Solent:

"I thought we were resilient, I can't remember them hurting our goal too much.

"It's a shame that these two teams have ended up in this division because they are great clubs.

"There is only one question mark against this side now and that's consistency and that's the next thing we need to tick off."

Leeds United manager Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"You don't want to allow a team like Southampton to build up steam and momentum, but we stood off them too much and allowed them to play.

"We are very disappointed with the way we played today and certainly didn't reach the high standards we set ourselves.

"The majority of the players didn't turn up today and we didn't play well, our passing was poor, as was our decision making."
