  • Southampton 2 Newcastle 0. Saints pick up back-to-back wins to clamber out of the drop zone. A clean sheet will also please Adkins, whose side controlled this contest from start to finish.

  • Final moments and Newcastle offer one final push. Taylor sees a clearance charged down by Cork. Williamson on hand to keep Lallana at bay.

  • Santon still looking to get forward, but Southampton have so many bodies behind the ball he has to go sideways. Gutierrez then surrenders possession.

  • Final changes of the afternoon see Perch enter the fold for Newcastle. For the Saints, Hooiveld replaces Shaw.

  • Newcastle appear to have run out of steam, with Marveaux lumping the ball forward more in hope than expectation. Southampton not sitting back, they want more.

  • Four minutes of stoppage time to be played.

  • Rodriguz call was a close one. Could have been six on another day for the Saints. Newcastle just haven't been at the races. As I speak, Cisse cuts across the edge of the box and curls inches past the post. Where has that been all afternoon?

  • Gutierrez down and he can't keep the ball in play. He staggers back to his feet. Not been Newcastle's day. Southampton come again, racing into open field. Rodriguez puts the ball into the back of net, but the flag goes up.

  • Santon wih a burst of pace which takes him past Puncheon. Clyne is backing up to put in a challenge. Southampton determined to collect a clean sheet.

  • Gutierrez caught on the ball, but Puncheon can't roll the ball into open field for Rodriguez. Newcastle look to spring clear, but the ball ends up out of play for a Southampton throw.

  • Tiote the next to have his name taken. Newcastle want the final whistle now.

  • Ameobi witha heavy first touch in a dangerous position. The Saints are quick to pounce, with Lallana sent in on goal. He looks to fire across Krul, but sees his effort saved by the Newcastle keeper's feet.

  • Newcastle in a rush to get the game going again as the ball runs behind. In fairness, they need a miracle. One goal, though, would offer hope and set up a grandstand finish.

  • Newcastle look ragged at the moment. Krul slices a clearance up into the air. He gets away with it, but the Saints are on the ball. They will keep it as Ba concedes another free-kick. Newcastle's strikers have been very generous this afternoon.

  • Another risky back-pass from Newcastle, this time from Newcastle. Rodriguez chases Krul down, but the Newcastle keeper is able to launch clear. Cisse then concedes a free-kick for climbing on his man.

  • Gutierrez able to hang a cross to the back post. Taylor is well forward, but can't get himself on the end of the delivery. He isn't best pleased with Ba for getting in his way.

  • Could have been three. Nice football from the Saints in and around the box. Another brilliant pass from Lallana frees Davis. His effort from a tight angle is pushed behind by Krul. The resulting corner finds the head of Fonte, who nods off the crossbar. The Saints could be well clear by now.

  • Ameobi gives away a needless free-kick inside his own half. Newcastle fans not happy with referee Atkinson, They are gifted the ball back though as Lallana swings the set-piece out of play.

  • Steven Davis on in place of Ramirez. He has had a great game this afternoon. Davis should help to keep things tight.

  • Nice run from Marveaux right at the heart of the Southampton defence. He is eventually crowded out. Rodriguez is able to run the ball away for the Saints.
