  • That's it as the game finishes in a 1-1 stalemate that was just about right. It wasn't a classic as both sides edge that little bit closer to Premier League safety.

  • Bardsley loops a free-kick into the Southampton box from deep but Hooiveld is again in the right place to head clear.

  • Hooiveld gets in a decent defensive header as Johnson fires one into the Southampton box.

  • There will be a minimum of three minutes stoppage time.

  • Southampton very much in the ascendancy as Sunderland find themselves on the back foot. Rodriguez thought he'd muscled his way through but was pulled back for a nudge on Rose.

  • What a save by Mignolet to deny Lambert at the death. From Rodriguez's flick-on Lambert took the ball on his chest before firing a low angled effort that was brilliantly repelled by Mignolet.

  • Tension envelops both sets of supporters as a nervy atmosphere lingers in the air. It's all gone a little scrappy.

  • Waste by Southampton as Lambert is lazily caught off-side from Ward-Prowse's cross.

  • Davis winds one up on the edge of the area but N'Diaye, who's had a fair game for Sunderland, gets in a decent block.

  • Tension rising as the seconds tick away at the Stadium of Light. It could go either way, with both sides looking as though they want to get the job done today with a three-point haul.

  • Rose has kept going all afternoon for Sunderland but his cross is blocked as Southampton bid to keep hold of what would be a decent point.

  • A good run by Shaw as Southampton turn the screw having levelled ends with Sunderland clearing for a throw. Puncheon's goal has deflated the home crowd.

  • Southampton's leveller was all about the substitutes. Ward-Prowse's cross found Puncheon and from his excellent header Mignolet produced an even better save. Unfortunately for the Sunderland 'keeper the ball fell to the feet of the Southampton man, who made no mistake from close range.

  • GOAL for Southampton!!! Puncheon fires in at the second attempt to level. Super-sub.

  • Sunderland make their second change as Vaughan comes on for Larsson. That's his 18th substitute appearance of the season.

  • Double change for Southampton. Ward-Prowse and Puncheon for Cork and Lallana.

  • Southampton striker Rodriguez booked for what looks to be dissent.

  • It's all Sunderland as Bardsley fires in another strike from range. It causes consternation in the box but is eventually cleared.

  • Only Bardsley's second goal in two years but it was a beauty. Johnson's little pass played in the bombarding full-back down the right and from the angle he scorched in a pearl of an effort, albeit one that took a slight deflection off Hooiveld.

  • GOAL for Sunderland!!!! Screamer from Phil Bardsley. An absolute arrow from the full-back that takes a nick off Hooiveld.
