Southampton   4 - 1   Huddersfield

Southampton v Huddersfield

Southampton 4-1 Huddersfield

Southampton fought back from 1-0 down to move into League One's top six and a point off third-placed Huddersfield.

Lee Novak put the Terriers in front by heading home Gary Roberts' cross before Rickie Lambert restored parity when his shot slipped past keeper Alex Smithies.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain slotted home to put Saints ahead before the break.

Radhi Jaidi nodded in Adam Lallana's free-kick to make it 3-1 before Richard Chaplow fired home left footed to complete the impressive comeback.

Southampton capitalised on League One rivals Bournemouth and Peterborough both dropping points and their emphatic victory propelled them into the play-off places.

They had to do things the hard way after Novak headed clinically past keeper Kelvin Davis to stun the home crowd.

But it took Nigel Adkins's men just 12 minutes to pull themselves back into it when Lambert lashed home.

Southampton continued to dominate - Chamberlain's cool finish and Jaidi's powerful header extended the Terriers' woes.

Chaplow's drive secured Saints all three points and leaves them fifth - a point behind Huddersfield and Charlton, and only two behind second-placed Sheffield Wednesday.


Southampton manager Nigel Adkins told BBC Radio Solent:
"It was a good victory for everybody, a great atmosphere to be in and the statement is out there - we want to do well and keep building on what we've done.

"Our intention is to win the division, it's as simple as that.

"(on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who has been linked with Liverpool) We're not looking to let him go, he's only 17. He is a special talent, he's come through the system and what we're trying to do is build here."

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:
"We should have had three goals in the first half. Alan Lee's hit the post and Scott Arfield's missed a real sitter.

"I don't think the players have let me down but it was very disappointing.

"We've got to bounce back from this setback. We have to stand up and be counted."
