Bristol Rovers   1 - 5   Southampton

Bristol Rovers v Southampton

Bristol Rovers 1-5 Southampton

Southampton continued their dramatic push for an unlikely play-off berth with a big win over Bristol Rovers.

Jeff Hughes scored from the spot for Rovers after Jose Fonte fouled Jo Kuffour before Pirates old-boy Rickie Lambert headed Saints level.

Lambert made it 2-0 with a 30-yard free-kick and Morgan Schneiderlin added a third with a 25-yard volley.

Adam Lallana side-footed in for 4-1 before Jason Puncheon fired in from the edge of the box to seal the win.


Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope told BBC Radio Bristol:
"We knew we had to be at a very good level to win the game - and we certainly got there at times.

"In the first-half we produced some good attacking football and we had the chance to make it 2-0.

"It's a little lesson to us that this is what quality can do, they can hurt us.

"We gave them far too much time and space on the ball."

Southampton manager Alan Pardew told BBC Radio Solent:
"We found ourselves one down, but we didn't come off the gas all night.

"The fans were brilliant, team were absolutely superb, all we can do is keep winning.

"The team are having a real good go, you can't fault them, playing with real passion, many Championship sides wouldn't have lived with us tonight."
