    • Sunderland
    • Southampton
    • 90+3' The full-time whistle is blown. Sunderland are held to a draw. Both sides will surely focus their attention on Wigan's midweek game with Arsenal as they look to secure their Premier League safety. Thanks for joining us today.
    • 90' We'll have three minutes of added time.
    • 88' Rodriguez battles with Rose as Puncheon slips in his teammate. Rose goes down in the box and the referee blows the whistle, much to the annoyance of Rodriguez who thought the defender had slipped.
    • 87' Incredible save from Mignolet!! Rodriguez’s chipped pass over the top is controlled well on the chest by Lambert. The striker sends a first-time volley at goal from a tight angle which looks to be finding the far corner only for the Sunderland keeper to get a firm hand on it.
    • 86' What a waste. Southampton’s promising move is brought to an end as Lambert is caught offside following Ward-Prowse’s clever pass.
    • 85' Rose looks to find Graham with a long ball but the striker is given offside. The Saints play on and look to attack through Shaw down the left. The youngster switches play into the path of Clyne who bursts into the penalty area before losing control of the ball.
    • 83' The tension is really rising here. This could go either way. Will either side step forward and grab the goal that will secure their side Premier League safety?
    • 82' Good pressure from Southampton. They stroke the ball around well on the edge of the penalty area, with Ward-Prowse pivotal. The substitute links with fellow sub Puncheon again as the goalscorer finds some space on the right and cross. O’Shea’s clearance falls to Ward-Prowse on the edge of the penalty area but the shot is off target.
    • 81' The ball is sent high into the penalty area. Davis is all over Mignolet who fumbles. Fortunately for the keeper the referee blows the whistle to award the hosts a free kick.
    • 80' A very promising run from Shaw here as Southampton turn the screw having got that leveller. Puncheon's goal has really quietened down the home crowd.
    • 79' Sunderland really looked to be taking the initiative following their opener, but the equaliser has stopped them in their tracks now. The intensity isn’t there anymore.
    • 78' As it stands, these two sides will hope that Wigan lose to Arsenal on Tuesday so they can avoid any last day drama.
    • 77' Jay Rodriguez has gone into the book for dissent. Confirmation that Luke Shaw was also booked for that challenge on N'Diaye a few moments ago.
    • 76' GOAL FOR SOUTHAMPTON!! What a substitution from Pochettino. Puncheon is the man to get a goal after Lambert and Ward-Prowse link through the middle. The latter gets in the box and crosses from the left where Puncheon arrives to head an effort into the chest of Mignolet. The keeper’s not helped out by his defence as Punceon secures the equaliser from 4 yards.
    • 75' Johnson whips the free kick in from the right and the ball somehow goes through the entire set of bodies in the penalty area. Goal kick.
    • 74' Sebastian Larsson, who’s not been at his best this afternoon, is replaced by David Vaughan.
    • 73' It’s all going Sunderland’s way at the moment. N’Diaye is hauled to the floor by Shaw and the hosts have a free kick in a promising position here.
    • 72' Adam Lalana and Jack Cork are replaced by Jason Puncheon and James Ward-Prouse.
    • 71' The hosts keep the pressure up. The home fans are on their feet and are applauding every touch. Bardsley receives the ball 30 yards from goal and is urged to ‘SHOOOOT’ by the home fans. He does so, but the shot is cleared.
    • 70' There’s been a much more confident look about Southampton in this second half. They’re playing with a sense of purpose and are on the attack again.
    • 69' That’s only his second goal in two years, the defender. Di Canio, as per usual, was going mad on the touchline.
    • 68' GOAL FOR SUNDERLAND!! PHIL BARDSLEY SCORES!! The ball drops to Johnson on the edge of the penalty area and the winger shimmies one way before rolling the ball out wide to Bardsley who has made the overlap. There’s only one thing on his mind and he pulls the trigger from the edge of the penalty area. It takes a slight deflection off Hooiveld on its way into the top left-hand corner.
    • 67' A little bit of naivety from Colback there. Shaw was penned deep into his own half but the Sunderland midfielder simply crashed into the back of the youngster.
    • 66' The packed-out crowd of 42,000 are really making themselves heard. They’re in good voice and are obviously enjoying this second half much more than the first.
    • 65' Bardsley whips in a smart cross on the overlap but it's hit too hard and fizzes past everyone in the penalty area. Better again from Sunderland though. Decent play from Sunderland yet again.
    • 64' A promising Southampton attack is brought to an abrupt end as Davis strays just offside wide on the right. Decent line from the Sunderland defence, though...
    • 63' Di Canio is off again. He’s gesticulating from the touchline and is urging his men forward. They’ve not been as deep as they were in the opening 45 minutes but the Italian obviously wants his players to sit a little further forward.
    • 62' Rose gets away from Clyne down on the left touchline and is played in. The ball is too firm and doesn’t give the on-loan full-back much of a chance. Rose’s pace sees him reach the ball in time but he can’t keep the cross in.
    • 61' It’s been a much better second half so far. Sunderland are playing with a tempo and a hunger and the home fans are responding to it. They are encouraging their team on and are making a lot of noise.
    • 60' Colback takes charge in the centre of the Sunderland midfield. The ball is loose and the young Englishman picks it up, works a one-two with Rose and then whips a cross in from the left which is sent out of play for a corner.
    • 59' Another chance for Rodriguez. The tall striker is the first to meet Lallana’s corner from the right and gets his head to it. Again, it’s another firm header but is too central which allows for Mignolet to make a comfortable save.
    • 58' Smart defending from Cuellar. Lambert and Rodriguez link well down the middle of the park and exchange a number of short, sharp passes but the Spaniard intercepts the final pass and clears the danger.
    • 57' Di Canio is going mad on the touchline. Graham drops short and wants the ball played into his feet but Larsson clips it long. Not on the same wavelength at all.
    • 56' This really sums up Johnson’s season. The English winger switches sides and travels down the right but with nothing on he turns back and then looks to play the ball into the feet of Bardsley but knocks it into touch.
    • 54' Sunderland break in numbers as the ball is worked from right to left. Rose picks it up and ventures forward, beating Clyne and then drilling the ball into the penalty area. Graham should at least get something on it at the near post but misses it completely. He desperately needs a goal.
    • 53' Good save from Mignolet. Lallana’s corner is put onto the penalty spot where Rodriguez rises highest and sends a firm header on goal. The Sunderland keeper sees it early and beats the ball away.
    • 52' Rodriguez is the first to a loose ball on the edge of the Sunderland penalty area. The youngster opens his body and looks to guide a shot into the far corner. Cuellar makes a block and Southampton have another corner.
    • 51' Wickham’s in the thick of the action again. This time he clashes heads with Lallana as the pair battle for a header. The Southampton man is down receiving treatment.
    • 50' Wickham has put himself about in the few minutes he’s been on the pitch. He’s been out for a month through injury but is certainly making the most of this chance...
    • 49' The home fans are on their feet as Jose Fonte misjudges a high ball which lets Graham in on goal. The whistle is blown, though. Replays show that Graham had nudged the defender in the back.
    • 48' Shaw breaks forward and isn’t put under any pressure at all. The left-back is able to stroll all the way from the halfway line and into the Sunderland penalty area where he clips the ball back towards Rodriguez. Mignolet reads it well and claims.
    • 47' Not happy with what he saw in the first half, Paolo Di Canio has introduced Conor Wickham in place of James McClean.
    • 46' The second half is under way. Southampton kick off.
    • 45+1' Mike Dean blows his whistle to end the first half in which Sunderland have been very poor. The sides go in level but Southampton have looked the more likely to find the back of the net.
    • 45' We'll have one minute of added time at the end of this first half.
    • 44' N’Diaye creates something for his side again. The midfielder comes out to the left touchline, produces a step over and then rolls the ball onto the edge of the penalty area into the path of the onrushing Larsson. The Swede drills his shot towards goal but Hooiveld gets in a block.
    • 43' Davis’ pass really wasn’t a good one. Lambert did so well to keep the ball in play but he won’t be best please with his finish.
    • 42' Chance for Southampton. Davis clips a ball into the penalty area, aiming for Lambert as the visitors attack in numbers. Lambert’s first touch on his head is magnificent as the ball drops to him 12 yards from goal. His volleyed effort isn’t one of his best, though, and Mignolet simply has pick up a softly hit shot from his feet.
    • 41' Rose is really fortunate not to go into the book. The defender really tries to get something for his team as he goes down under no pressure at all on the edge of the penalty area. He’s claiming a free kick but referee Mike Dean waves play on.
    • 40' Finally something for the home fans to get off their seats for. It was a poor finish in the end and Johnson really should have made something of that.
    • 39' Johnson’s first corner is a poor one and is headed out for another one. Larsson takes the second one and finds O’Shea at the far post. The Sunderland captain nods the ball down into the path of Johnson who attempts a side-footed effort on goal. It’s mishit, however, and Boruc gathers.
    • 38' Promising run from Colback. He’s full of energy and bursts down the right, being tracked by Cork all the way. The midfielder checks his run and then knocks the ball past his man before winning a corner.
    • 37' Sunderland continue to sit deep. They’ve been pegged back in their own half for much of this first half. Only N’Diaye with his strength and pace has looked like creating anything for the hosts.
    • 35' Shaw hangs the ball up onto the edge of the Sunderland penalty area. Rose heads it down back into danger which allows for the unmarked Lallana to have a pop at goal. The connection is poor and Mignolet watches it roll past his left post.
    • 34' Lambert really is unhappy with that challenge from N’Diaye and walks over to the assistant to enquire as to why it wasn’t a penalty, using some rather choice words. It was never a penalty, though...
    • 33' Lambert goes down in the box as he comes together with N’Diaye following Lallana’s set piece from the right, Nothing is given but the Southampton front man gives the referee’s assistant an earful.
    • 32' The visitors win another corner that Lallana pumps into the box. It’s hit just under the crossbar and Mignolet has to be on his toes to claim. He does do, and does it well under pressure from Fonte.
    • 31' Chance for the visitors. Lallana’s corner falls to the feet of Rodriguez who sidefoots and effort on goal. It takes a deflection and wrong-foots Mignolet but the keeper recovers well to palm the ball away.
    • 30' Clever play from Lambert who knows he’s offside. The striker allows the ball to roll past him and through to Rodriguez. The former Burnley man travels down the left and wins a corner off Bardsley.
    • 29' Clyne puts a cross out of play under no pressure at all. That puts an end to a decent Southampton move . It's been that kind of game.
    • 28' We have our first shot on goal. Lambert gathers the ball 25 yards from goal and sets himself to make space for an effort from distance. It’s hit straight at Mignolet and the keeper holds with ease.
    • 27' Wonderful stuff again from N’Diaye. He’s an absolute beast in the middle of the Sunderland midfield; bursting out of his own half and getting to the edge of the Southampton box drilling a shot into the legs of Jose Fonte.
    • 26' There’s not been a single shot on goal in these opening 25 minutes. The visitors have looked far more comfortable in possession with the hosts struggling to find any rhythm. Shaw gets into the penalty area and goes down under a challenge from Colback but it’s not a foul.
    • 25' The home fans voice their discontent at their side’s latest attempt at going forward. Cuellar simply sends the ball into the corner for Graham to chase but it’s a poor pass and rolls out for a goal kick. Poor play from the Spaniard.
    • 24' Graham really does look isolated for the hosts. Again they win the ball back deep in their own half but have no out ball at all. It’s pumped long but the striker fails to hold the ball up, and Southampton go again.
    • 22' Clyne sprints down the right, brushing off a number of challenges on his way into the penalty area. The full-back pulls the ball back into the path of the onrushing Davis but Cuellar spots the danger and is able to beat his opposition to the ball.
    • 21' Sunderland look to be sitting a little too deep so far. They’re defending deeply and are subsequently struggling when attacking as Johnson and McClean are so far away from Graham.
    • 20' The away fans hold their breath as Boruc and Clyne get themselves into a mess. The Southampton right-bank shows a quick turn of pace to get his side out of trouble and take the ball upfield.
    • 19' Lallana’s cross is a good one this time and is whipped into the near post. Lambert looks to be getting there but McClean throws himself into danger and heads the ball away. Great defending.
    • 18' Rodriguez does well down the right. The front man pulls out wide, receives the ball and then knocks it through the legs of Rose before drawing the foul from Cuellar.
    • 17' It’s been the visitors that have looked the slightly better side so far. They looks a little more organised when attacking and have had 66% of the possession .
    • 16' Southampton enjoy a spell of possession deep in the Sunderland half, with the hosts pegged back. Davis looks to engineer something but runs into a dead end. Instead, he feeds the ball to Cork wide on the right but the cross is a poor one and runs out for a throw-in.
    • 15' Poor decision from referee Mike Dean. N’Diaye makes a wonderfully-timed, strong challenge to whip the ball away from Schneiderlin but the referee deems it to be a foul, much to the annoyance of the home crowd.
    • 14' It’s been an entertaining opening quarter of an hour but neither keeper has been tested yet.
    • 13' Smart play from Shaw. The left-back is high up the pitch and receives the ball on the touchline. He jinks one way and then takes the ball the other, leaving Bardsley wrong-footed. His right-footed cross isn’t great, though, and the ball is cleared.
    • 12' Awkward one for Mignolet. He receives a bouncing pass-back from Rose and is immediately put under pressure. With no options and Rodriguez closing in, the keeper simply plays the ball out for a corner.
    • 11' Schneiderlin clips a ball over the top to Davis who has managed to get away from Rose. The on-loan full back makes good ground, however, and is able to win the ball back for his team. Incidentally, this will be Danny Rose’s final game of the season as he’s ineligible to play against Spurs – his parent club – next week.
    • 10' Great stuff from N’Diaye again. He shows immense strength to hold off Schneiderlin’s challenge and then trick his way past cork before being brought down in the centre circle.
    • 9' Sunerland have won just one of their last eight games at the Stadium of Light and that was against Everton. It’s not exactly been a fortress this season. They’d like to secure a victory at their final home game of the season, though...
    • 8' John O’Shea commits a sloppy foul on Davis 30 yards from goal and Southampton have a decent chance here. Lallana fizzes the ball into the box but it’s a little too firm for Lambert at the far post who can’t keep it in.
    • 7' N’Diaye does well in the middle of the park to turn his man and break forward. He sends the ball out wide to Johnson but the former Manchester City man overruns the ball and gives away possession.
    • 6' The visitors win the first corner of the match of which Lallana takes. It’s not a great set-piece, though, as Mignolet – who’s making his 100th appearance for Sunderland today – comes off his line to claim.
    • 5' The Stadium of Light faithful are making a lot of noise. They know that this is a huge game and a singing their hearts out, urging their team forward.
    • 4' Young Southampton left-back Luke Shaw gets his first touch of the game. He’s been outstanding this season and does look the real deal. The defender breaks down the left but is stopped in his tracks by Bardsley.
    • 3' Ooooooof!! Phil Bardsley flies into a tackle with Lallana and, fortunately for the Sunderland man, Lallana jumps out the way and avoids the challenge. It could have been a nasty one.
    • 2' Sunderland look to keep the ball but are forced back to the keeper instantly. Mignolet sends the ball up field but the ball flies out for a Southampton throw-in.
    • 1' The game is under way. Referee Mike Dean blows the whistle as Sunderland kick off.
    • 14:55 The teams are gathered in the tunnel and are just about to make their way onto the pitch ahead of all the pre-match formalities. Just five minutes to go...

    • 14:45 Morgan Schneiderlin, who was a doubt for the visitors, starts in midfield. Maya Yoshida, who also looked unlikely to be able to take part in the fixture, finds himself on the bench whilst Emmanuel Mayuka has made the squad after spending the week in Zambia following the death of his father.
    • 14:40 Danny Graham starts up front on his own for the hosts as Stephane Sessegnon continues to serve his three match ban after his red card against Aston Villa in their 6-1 drubbing. Steven Fletcher is still sidelined. Sebastian Larsson will play just behind the former Swansea man with James McClean and Adam Johnson supporting from the wings.
    • 14:35 The teams are in - SUNDERLAND: Mignolet, Bardsley, O'Shea, Cuellar, Rose, Larsson, N'Diaye, Colback, McClean, Johnson, Graham. SUBS: Westwood, Wickham, Kilgallon, Vaughan, Mangane, Marrs, Mandron /// SOUTHAMPTON: Boruc, Clyne, Hooiveld, Fonte, Shaw, Steven Davis, Schneiderlin, Cork, Lallana, Rodriguez, Lambert. SUBS: Kelvin Davis, Yoshida, Forren, Ward-Prowse, Mayuka, De Ridder, Puncheon
    • 14:30 A big miss for the hosts this afternoon will be that of Craig Gardner in the middle of the Black Cats’ midfield. The former Aston Villa man is suspended for the tie and will subsequently miss the rest of the season following a challenge on Stoke’s Charlie Adam in their last match - a challenge that warranted a straight red card. Despite the numerical disadvantage, Sunderland managed to rally and hold out for a point against the Potters in the 1-1 draw.

    • 14:25 "We would not accept it if we were awarded that possibility. We have spoken with the chairman and decided not to take that offer because I think in football what you are awarded in football needs to be earned on the pitch. We will only accept possibilities when we've earned them on the pitch and not just by fair play, but actually earning it with points and results."
    • 14:20 Despite being dragged into the mire this season and having a less than exemplary record in league fixtures, the Saints do have something to be proud of this term; their disciplinary record. In fact, they’re leading the Fair Play League and will subsequently qualify for the Europa League next season. However, Southampton boss Pochettino doesn’t believe that his side have merited a place in Europe’s second cup competition.
    • 14:15 Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio had been speaking about the importance of this fixture ahead of the game: "It is difficult for both sides. If we win, we stay up; if they win, they stay up. It’s a good challenge. I’m curious and I am sure my players are going to deliver a very good performance because they know how important the game is. After what happened on Monday night [against Stoke] we are really focused for the next game.”
    • 14:10 The Saints currently lie one position above the hosts in 14th place in the Barclays Premier League table on 39 points. If Mauricio Pochettino’s men come away with three points today then they are mathematically safe. If the Black Cats get that vital win then they will be all but safe, meaning that Wigan will have to claim two victories from their final two games and score an impossible number of goals.
    • 14:05 As the season end draws ever nearer, this game couldn’t be any bigger for either side. It’s a winner-takes-all fixture with the victor here today securing Premier League status for another year.
    • 14:00 Good afternoon and welcome to our LIVE commentary of today’s Premier League fixture between Sunderland and Southampton from the Stadium of Light.

  3. Two games v Stoke and Southampton would have been won­ if Sess hadn't been suspended !! Playing with­ Danny Graham as your main striker is proof of the­ quality and depth of our squad !! Whoever is­ responsible for paying 5m for him shouldn't be­ allowed anywhere near a football club !! Cuellar,­ McClean Larsson, Graham, Vaughan, time for bye byes!! ­ O'Shea, Colback, Mignolet ,were the only ones to­ warrant a 1st team place, Bardsley, Johnson ,can do­ better , NDiaye maybe too slow, Rose,a must have !!! ­ FFS why do we put up with SAFC we must be 4k-in MAD­ !!!!!!

  4. if wigan wins both games(beat av by 1 goal) and saint­ lose 13:0 they can stil go down :))) highly unlikely­ ............but possible :)

    From Greg, on Mon 13 May 3:35
  5. can anyone tell me how saints arnt safe when if wigan­ dont win their last 2 games they r down and if they do­ then aston villa will go down instead

  6. What's the betting that the cheesy chip brigade­ will be quiet again & with the exception of Joseph­ & Jordy (who's just a troll not even a­ blackshirt) will keep off our pages for the moment­ unless Arsenal win on Tuesday? Come on Wigan!!!!

    From Eric Cartman, on Sun 12 May 17:12
  7. Wigan have to win both games.... can they do it? Sad to­ say but if they do win both then we are down because we­ aint getting anything at Spurs. Two home games and we­ can't win a single one of them. Sorry lads but if­ we get relegated we absolutely deserve it because this­ game summed up most of our season to be honest. Mass­ clear out is needed no matter which division we play in­ next season.

  8. first division #$%$

  10. 17 shots, 8 on target v 6 shots, 2 on target. Minnolet­ man of match. Says it all, really. There could be­ some hoss Puncheon in scumderland tonight, though I­ think your lasses are ugly enough without slapping­ them. There'll be some nervous cheessy chip­ munching on Tuesday. Come on Wigan! SMB!

  11. Why would Southampton focus on Wigan's result? the­ fact Wigan play Villa on the last day means that Soton­ would have to lose their last match by 12 goals to go­ down - they're safe.

  12. Everytime the page refreshes the comments disappear and­ it invites me to be the first to comment. #$%$ website.­ I'm off.

    From Andrew, on Sun 12 May 16:43
  13. why is this site so pathetically out of date? - 2 goals­ scored and still shows 0-0 even though commentary says­ they have been scored. not worth logging on to - BBCTV­ is more up to date

    From NEIL, on Sun 12 May 16:39
  14. Still says 0-0 on my screen. Anyone else see that?

    From Andrew, on Sun 12 May 16:37
  15. Website is rubbish as usual!Scoreboards not working ­ progress bar not working

    From Bob P, on Sun 12 May 16:35
  16. Come on Saints! Finally! First goal in nearly 4 games!

    From Andrew, on Sun 12 May 16:34
  17. Glad to see the Mackems score. Would like them to stay­ in the prem. 41 points is all they and NUFC need to­ stay up.

    From Cards Fan, on Sun 12 May 16:29
  18. Get in

    From Hymer, on Sun 12 May 16:25
  19. We're going to lose this---you can see it­ coming--we have NO COMMITMENT-- short on­ ideas--nothing. We might hang on for a draw, but I­ wouldn't bet on it

    From Bob P, on Sun 12 May 16:18
  20. come on Saints!
