    • 90' FULL TIME. Southampton are promoted to the Premier League courtesy of a 4-0 home win over Coventry and the final whistle sparks a huge pitch invasion. Flares are cracked out and everything.
    • 79' It is a club record attendance of 32,000 at St Mary's. There will be some party in just over 10 minutes.
    • 63' GOAL! Southampton 4-0 Coventry! Lallana latches onto a loose ball at the back post and caresses the ball into the roof of the net to take the promotion party up another notch.
    • 59' GOAL! Southampton 3-0 Coventry! That, ladies and gentlemen, is that. Southampton surely secure promotion thanks to a finish from Jos Hooveid on the turn after a shot is deflected into his path.
    • 52' Over at Southampton, Lambert tries to end any hopes of such a scenario with a vicious effort but his shot flies high and wide from 20 yards.
    • 48' Southampton, enjoying a two-goal cushion of course, go so close to adding a third when Guly heads over the bar when unmarked from close range.
    • 41' Southampton go close! Coventry fail to clear from a Danny Butterfield cross and the ball pops into the path of Lallana, who sees his firm effort blocked well by youngster Jordan Willis.
    • 23' Billy Sharp twists and turns away from his man as he looks to kill the game off, but can't get a shot away. Southampton are rampant now.
    • 19' GOAL! Southampton 2-0 Coventry! Well, this is almost done and dusted. Fonte gets away from his marker from a corner and produces a diving header that thumps into the turf and over the man on the line.
    • 16' GOAL! Southampton 1-0 Coventry! Jose Fonte bursts through the centre of the pitch and the ball comes to Lallana, who thumps in a low drive that takes a deflection off Sharp and sneaks in. Saints going up.
    • 10' Now Lallana slips in Billy Sharp with a neat pass but the striker cannot get a shot away from just inside the box.
    • 8' Adam Lallana delivers a deep cross from the left wing for Southampton but no one attacks it in the box. Up the other end, Southampton are exposed and concede a corner, before Kelvin Davis palms away from a Gary McSheffrey shot!
    • 1' That could have spelled early disaster for West Ham as Rickie Lambert flicks the ball into the path of Guly Do Prado, who sends his shot over the bar inside 20 seconds.
    • 12:22 TEAMS: Southampton: Davis, Butterfield, Hooiveld, Fonte, Fox, Do Prado, Schneiderlin, Hammond, Lallana, Sharp, Lambert. Subs: Bialkowski, Harding, Cork, De Ridder, Puncheon. /// Coventry: Murphy, Clarke, Cranie, Willis, Hussey, Baker, Norwood, Thomas, Bigirimana, McSheffrey, McDonald. Subs: Dunn, Platt, Jeffers, Roberts, Henderson.
