Saints move up to 15th and are two points clear of the relegation zone. Villa, by contrast, drop into the bottom three. We will have reaction for you on the website soon...

4:52pm

FULL-TIME: Aston Villa 0 Saints 1

4:47pm

CHANCE (89 mins): Baker heads a corner against the bar, as Villa go close to levelling the game up.

4:44pm

INJURY (86 mins): Worrying scenes for Saints, as Luke Shaw is stretchered off following a challenge with Matthew Lowton. Looked to be in a lot of pain. De Ridder on in his place.

4:39pm

CHANCE (79 mins): Benteke's effort from the edge of the area narrowly misses the target, as Villa press for an equaliser.

4:28pm

CHANCE (67 mins): Jason Puncheon's low left foot shot beats Brad Guzan but comes back off the post.

4:27pm

CHANCE (52 mins): Boruc saves Stevens' low drive, but pushes the ball straight to Benteke who puts the rebound over the bar.

3:47pm

HALF-TIME: Aston Villa 0 Saints 1

3:37pm

GOAL: Aston Villa 0 Saints 1 (Lambert pen 34): Referee Mark Halsey rules that Jay Rodriguez is tripped by Enda Stevens in the box. Lambert steps up and sends Brad Guzan the wrong way.

3:31pm

CHANCE (28 mins): Shaw goes close to his first Saints goal, with a left foot shot across goal from 20 yards that flashes just wide of the post.

3:25pm

CHANCE (22 mins): Puncheon twists and turns past Enda Stevens, before picking out with Rodriguez with his cross. The striker's flicked header towards the far post goes wide, though.

3:18pm

CHANCE (16 mins): Lambert's clever pass sends Rodriguez sprinting clear down the right wing. He drives towards the near post and squares the ball across the face of goal, but the backtracking Ciaran Clark is able to intercept it and avert the danger.

3:09pm

CHANCE (6 mins): Benteke turns onto his right foot in the area, but his shot towards the far top corner is off target and goes into the stands.

3:00pm

The game is underway

2:58pm

The teams are out on the pitch here at Villa Park. Kick-off just a few minutes away. We will have updates here for you throughout the match...

2:37pm

Aston Villa have been licking their wounds this week after Tuesday's 3-1 humbling at League Two side Bradford City in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final. Lambert hopes his players will use the shame of that result to inspire them to a win today:

 

You don't sleep. I think any manager will tell you that. It's not been a great two nights since Tuesday, let's put it that way. But I love the pressure of it and you have to meet it head-on. I'd rather have the pressure than not. You've got to have pressure to perform and that is the making of football and that is no different for the lads who are here. The fans were hurting after the other night and it was an embarrassment. I hurt like everyone else and the players are also hurt by the embarrassment of getting beat the way they did. They will want to put things right. The lads are down about what has happened but you have to pick yourself up and go again. You get on with it. You can't feel sorry for yourselves in football.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert

2:33pm

Here is a snippet of what Rodriguez had to say...

 

We have a inner confidence and team spirit so we can go to places and get a good result. I am sure that we will. We are working hard every day in training, getting the right stuff on board getting ready for the games. I think we will go into the game with inner confidence. We’ve done very well this season and I think we have been unlucky on certain occasions not to get the three points. I feel we have got a self-belief, a team spirit, and feel we are going to go forward. We are picking up points on the road as well, which is better. We know we need to keep working hard, keep focused and hopefully keep moving up the table.

Saints striker Jay Rodriguez

2:24pm

Saints forward Jay Rodriguez starts today's match. Here he is speaking about it...

Saints (last six, league only): L W L D D D

Aston Villa top scorer (league only): Christian Benteke 6

Saints top scorer (league only): Rickie Lambert 8

2:17pm

The big news out of Saints this week has been teenage left-back Luke Shaw pledging his long-term future to the club. Shaw is set to sign a five-year deal when he turns 18 next summer. Here is what manager Nigel Adkins had to say about it this week...

 

He is at a football club that loves him, that cares for him. He has committed his long-term future because he knows it is a good place for Luke Shaw's development. He feels for the football club and the fans. I am sure the fans will support him over the coming years. He is a young player and we've got to protect him and look after. You can be built up so much then all of a sudden knocked down. We've got to allow him to flourish. As a young player, like several that we've had, we want to continually improve them. His one-on-one defending is good, his passing ability is good and he is improving all the time. I am sure there will be some stage where things aren't going right for him but that is why we have this great culture at Southampton.

Saints manager Nigel Adkins

2:10pm

Hello and welcome to the Daily Echo’s blog, covering this afternoon’s Premier League encounter between Aston Villa and Saints, at Villa Park. Both clubs start the day just outside the relegation zone, with Nigel Adkins’ team in 17th and their opponents just a point and a place better off. Villa have been on a horrible run of form, though, conceding 21 goals in their last six matches, culminating in this week’s embarrassing 3-1 defeat at League Two side Bradford City in the Capital One Cup. Saints will certainly feel that Villa are there for the taking, and with just three wins in their last 23 league fixtures at home, who could blame them? A win for either team here would represent a big step on the road towards survival, but a defeat would be a fairly substantial blow. We will have the build-up, team news and match updates for you throughout the afternoon.

I'm going old-school with a prediciton of 3-1 to the Saints :-)

Need the win today partly for Saints and partly for me, as my ex-wife's new husband is a Villa fan, and he would go on about it no end if they win...

Today has to be all out attack, Villa are as fragile as anyone in defence and Gaston Guly and Punch should rip them to shreds and give Ricki enough quality supply to bang in a hatrick.

No doubts we can win this one, the question is by how many.

COYR 0 3 PLEASE!!

Think that tells us just what Nigel expects.
A win.

I know we've been assuming it, but actually seeing Clyne's name there has eased my fears so much. His presence releases Cork back to midfield, where he should be and, most importantly, where he can cover back to help with Jose's absence.

Much more optimistic now (but still nervous).

st bevois says...
2:16pm Sat 12 Jan 13

It looks positive - as per my post on the other thread - just not sure how the Jay Rod and SLR combo will work today. Assume Gaston will be wide left. Interesting - no Guly to be seen.

Guly is ill according to the article above .

rocketone says...
2:24pm Sat 12 Jan 13

Cork back in front of defence is the most important news.
Ramirez may well start out wide but I do not think he will stay there.
It is far more likely that Ricky Jrod & Gaston will switch around along the front line.
The purchase of Yoshi now looks good as he can play left & right CB and Jose out is is just a chance for Jos.
The two best full backs back and we look good to go.
Pleased to see Vlaar is back, slow at the best of times, coming back from injury rusty too!

Yes, but it did cross my mind that he might be on a plane to Italy with the Don to see if he could find a new home where he was a little more appreciated and as part of a deal to bring someone this way.

So for a while, switch Jrod over there for a right foot to fool the defender for a different tactic and get Punch down the left and cut back.

The general opinion was that JRod got his feet tangled up and went down, not intentional dive but very dubious Pen, makes a change and makes up those that weren't given imo.

A terrific 1st half performance.
Just what you want to hear on your commentary.
2nd half step up a bit more and this game is in the bag.
Obviously Villa will come out fast, we need to be faster.

Jrod backed off from a challenge that missed his foot and in the process he lost his balance and fell forward. No contact on the replays but we deserve to be in front as we have been the better side.

not a bad first half, villa look like a school side chasing the ball all over the pitch

Tirau Dan says...
3:51pm Sat 12 Jan 13

Gary Linekar tweeting complaint about Jayrod dive.. Peter Reid chipping in call for a 3 match restrospective ban!... All I can say is the defenders foot was very late and in no way aimed at the ball and after 3 or 4 replays it is so easy to rant... there was no contact but if it was a deliberate dive the timing was absolutely perfect.

slugger says...
3:51pm Sat 12 Jan 13

OK , we're winning again ....... let's just keep it that way lads ..... pleeease !

St.Yorkie says...
3:54pm Sat 12 Jan 13

Pleasing on the eye up to half time - I wonder if we will extend the lead or hold on to it?
I remember Villa were 1-up at our place at HT - and look what happened then. They do look a team needing a bit of luck - if we don't get something from this we only have ourselves to blame!

Still think he looked for it. The action of taking his foot away and falling forward to the ground, was 'well timed' to coincide with the defender's lung.

Either way, if he hadn't have taken his foot away, he might well have got fouled anyway.

If any of the 3,000 part-time posters at the match are reading this, keep up the singing; we can hear it loud and clear in Strasbourg.

thye are only reacting like that because diving is a hot topic at the moment.

did he dive? probably
down to the ref though and theres plenty of times the decision has gone against us so I'll take this one ta very much

Tirau Dan says...
4:01pm Sat 12 Jan 13

its comments like Gary Linekar's that cause the refs to act after the match.. we are just a little club.. easy for them to make a 3 match example of Jayrod as we'd not have an Alex Ferg raving all over the media about the useless inconsistencies in the reffing. Seriously hope he is not cited as some are saying it was the GKs action that got penalised.. All so easy after replays! Pundits need to take care.. fans should be able to yellow and red them too.

rocketone says...
4:03pm Sat 12 Jan 13

So Jrod bought the penalty.
So what?
That is the whole point of being a rich club, to be in a position to make these purchases.

tbh the only way they are ever going to get this kind of thing out of football is to introduce a video ref.

Luckily, this "diving" (I think he falls) didn't happen against one of the big teams. They would have banned the entire team for that!
I just hope we can keep this result...

Artur has pulled the sword from the stone? and if the sheet stays clean today we may see a Polish King Artur. King Kelv would approve, support and stay ready on the bench too he is that kind of guy..

Phew! We rode our luck but deserved it today.

Fans - magnificent
Players - brilliant

MotM? Rickie or ....... wait for it ..... Boruc (he finally turned up), but Jay and Spiderman were also fantastic.

I can understand the Villa fans' frustration but there were so many slightly late challenges by Villa players in the second half that they got away with (such as the player continuing his run into Shaw which led to him being stretched off) that, if anything, Halsey helped Villa gain a significant advantage. Luckily, Villa's strike force were pants and our defence held firm.

For those asking for Adkin's head, did you hear the fans singing his name loud and clear at the end? It's called support, you should try it!

COYR!

Wonderful day BUT...if our lads continue to forget how to pass straight and keep losing possession in the last 20 minutes we will not have many over 50's supporters left...heart attacks alround....

Fantastic result. Great win away and first double of the season. Wasn't a pen but I can see a few points lost so far this season with pens not given - the lunge on Lallana springs to mind!

Anyway penalty or not - when you read the sunday papers it's a win and a good gutsy display. With Chelski continuing the scoring today it's going to be a tough one at the Bridge but who knows.

Let's battle and get something there and seek revenge against the Toffees. Reckon we'll get something at Manc

Onwards and upwards - well done boys

Hope Luke is OK and taken off as a precaution!

You lot managed to buy one pretty well... I'm assuming you mean 2nd best? Take a look at the current league tables, take a look at which one of us were in the top divisions for 30+ years, WE are the real big boys in Hampshire, you were just a flash in the pan, living beyond your means as shown buy the fact you're in admin and soon to be out of business.

Half time reports on Radio Solent were from the Prem (Saints), League 1 (Cherries) non League (Pompey I thought).

Then I remembered it is 2013, not 2015!

Didn't go but saw it on-line ... 1st half excellent stuff (iffy penalty though) , second half defended well and rode our luck ...... 3 points in the bag is the only thing that matters now .

I'm going to have to eat some humble, having previously stated that Boruc was the goalkeeping equivalent of George Weah's cousin! Credit where its due, he did well today!

NA owes Mark Halsey big time! At least the a saints won. NA has more lives than a cat! If he had lost today it would be exit NA and enter stage left De Matteo. It seems its only a matter of time particularly bearing in mind the impending fixtures!!

Another game where we don't score in open play and never looked likely to. Lambert will be nicknamed 'stroller' soon.

Ramirez was awful again what a total waste of money!

Rodriguez another waste of money couldn't hit a cows derrière with a banjo.

Cork, Spider did well. Puncheon was busy but no right foot that seriously disadvantages him.

Clyne ok. Yashida weak and lucky not to concede a goal. Hoovield is a hoofer.

Shaw again different class. This 17 year old puts a number of the team to shame.

Boruc played well saved the game for the Saints.

Overall a weak display another game where we simply fail to score from open play.

With three players now out the team is seriously disadvantaged. Enjoy today we won't see a win for a long time.

Intersting use of the word we...mind you it is not our play per se it is the panic at circa last half hour were we play a completely different game loosely based on headless chickens..

Hoovield does concern me..he may win headers but the ball almost magnetically drops to the other side..

I am happy with the result, proud of the fans, however against almost anyone else we would have gone under in the last 20 mins..
