Southampton   1 - 0   Luton

Rickie Lambert's 25-yard free-kick took League One Southampton past non-league Luton into the FA Cup fourth round.

Luton's Kevin Pilkington made a handful of top-class saves before Lambert's expert strike in the 36th minute.

The Hatter came roaring back in the second half and Adam Newton should have equalised, but miskicked from two yards out when a goal looked certain.

Southampton could have extended their lead, but Lambert and substitute Matt Paterson both shot wide.


Saints boss Alan Pardew told BBC Solent:

"It's what the FA Cup is all about.

"They've come a long way, they weren't going to lay down and let us dictate. And they gave a real account of themselves in the second half.

"We didn't really work the goalkeeper enough in the second half. And we didn't retain the ball as well as we'd have liked. But, fortunately for us, we've got through."

Hatters manager Richard Money told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"I'm disappointed to lose, but we said beforehand that we wanted to come and give them a game and I thought we gave them a real contest.

"For 20/30 minutes in the second half we had them rocking and reeling. If we had scored it would have been very interesting.

"We didn't pass the ball as well as I liked, but we looked dangerous on the counter attack.

"Unfortunately we conceded from a free-kick where the referee has let us down."
