  • Norwich have now gone seven Premier League games unbeaten after a fourth successive away draw. They will be grateful to Gazzaniga for letting Snodgrass' free-kick slip under his body. Southampton, who had taken the lead through Lambert on the half hour, have now taken seven points from their last three outings.

  • Norwich win a late corner, but there won't be any time to take it. Referee Clattenburg blows his whistle and it finishes 1-1 at St Mary's.

  • Goal kick to Southampton - we're running out of seconds to find a winner.

  • Lambert gets another knockdown but neither Ramirez or Rodriguez can prosper, Bunn instead charging off his line to claim. Looks like we're going to end in stalemate.

  • Final change for Norwich - Hoolahan off, Howson on.

  • Fonte's foolishness in not kicking clear when he has the chance results in Norwich winning a throw deep inside Southampton territory. It all came about when Morison's punt into the right corner was chased down by Bennett like a Yorkshire Terrier going after a tennis ball.

  • The fourth official has indicated we will have four extra minutes.

  • Fonte goes down like he's just been hit with a right hook from Mike Tyson when he's in the way of a Pilkington rocket from about 25 yards out.

  • Norwich also make a change, Elliott Bennett taking over from Snodgrass out wide on the right.

  • Second switch for Southampton - Puncheon makes way for Rodriguez, suggesting Nigel Adkins is not settling for a point.

  • Bennett just hooks the ball away in time as Ramirez looks to sneak his way onto Lambert's knockdown. Both teams going much more direct now, and it's making for a lively finish to the contest.

  • Change for the hosts now - Shaw, who has been outstanding for Southampton, is limping off after that challenge with Snodgrass. Ben Reeves is on to take over from his fellow youngster at left-back.

  • Lambert can't keep his shot down as he's moving away from goal, sending Cork's low cross way over the top. At least that didn't result in a sticky situation for Bunn...

  • Huge appeals from the Norwich fans when Snodgrass goes down under a challenge from Shaw. It could have been deemed a tackle from behind as the former Leeds man looked to weave his way through, but replays do show he took the ball with his right foot as he dived in.

  • New man Morison gets an early chance, rising highest to head Garrido's cross way over the top of the bar.

  • A rather frustrated Holt makes way for Steve Morison. The subbed player decides he's seen enough, walking straight down the tunnel rather than taking a seat on the bench.

  • Ramirez's night is rather summed up by a left-footed strike at goal that is only going to do damage to spectators sitting about 15 rows up.

  • 10 minutes remaining and no replacements yet for either side. Holt is told off for a push on Yoshida.

  • Another well-worked move from a Southampton set-piece but, just as it looks like Yoshida is drifting in around the back to get in at goal, Ramirez tries to take the ball down on its flight path, giving Norwich the chance to clear their lines.

  • Norwich have their first yellow when Bennett is punished for a rather cynical trip on Ramirez.
