A half to forget...

Not the greatest or most exciting half of football at St Mary's. The visitors came closest through Kamil Grosicki but Saints will be hoping to put on a better second-half display.

It's 39 minutes gone and i've written nothing on my notepad in terms of chances going forward for saints

Saints pinned back...

Hull City are keeping the ball well and really pushing Saints back here - they certainly don't look like a side that haven't won away from home since August!

Great run from Davo! 

Steven Davis bursts forward and sparks a Southampton attack, but the resulting cut-back is just too far behind Manolo Gabbiadini. This is better!
