Derby level the game

69’

GOOOAL!!!

Nathan Redmond (69’) | 2 0

GOALSCORER 17 Stuart Armstrong

SAINTS TAKE THE LEAD!

We've got the opener! A nice move on the right culminates in Mohamed Elyounoussi chipping in a cross, which Shane Long heads back towards the far corner. It's acrobatically cleared off the line by a Derby defender, but Armstrong is on hand to nod in the rebound from close range.

67’

GOOOAL!!!

Stuart Armstrong (67’) | 1 0

65’

First-half action 📸

Look through some of our images from the opening 45 minutes at St Mary's.

HALF TIME: Southampton 0-0 Derby

We reach the break with the game still goalless. Shane Long had the best chance for Saints, being denied at close range by Kelle Roos, while Derby had a goal ruled out after a VAR check showed the narrowest of offsides. All to play for in the second half at St Mary's!

45’

Two minutes added time

Two additional minutes will be played here, but there might be a little more, as we go into it with Shane Long down for treatment.

41’

Derby denied by VAR!

Derby look to have taken the lead after a wonderful, intricate move to free Craig Bryson to slot past Angus Gunn, but, after a lengthy VAR check, Martyn Waghorn, who played the final pass, was judged to be offside by the narrowest of margins.

34’

Marriott shoots straight at Gunn

Derby are definitely coming into this more now, and they work another opportunity, as Jack Marriott, who scored in the first game, shifts the ball onto his right foot 25 yards out, only to hit a fairly tame low shot straight at Angus Gunn, who collects with comfort.

27’

Derby with their best chance of the night

A slick move from Derby ends with Harry Wilson flicking the ball to Mason Mount on the edge of the Saints box, but, under pressure from the sliding Kayne Ramsay, he fires his right-footed shot over.

Saints miss a golden opportunity

It should really be 1-0 to Southampton. Tyreke Johnson sends in a brilliant delivery from the left, which picks out Shane Long this time, but his first-time effort from six yards somehow hits Kelle Roos in the Derby goal. It looks as if Stuart Armstrong might then convert the rebound, but he can't quite make contact from close range, with the Rams then scrambling it away.

20’

Stephens nearly picks out Cédric in behind

A smart run from Cédric in behind almost catches Derby's defence out, but Jack Stephens's clever pass from inside is own half is just out of reach for the Saints full-back. A nice idea, though.

16’

Yellow Card for Tyreke Johnson (Southampton)

Tyreke Johnson is the first player into the book for a hefty challenge on Harry Wilson. No doubt around that one.

Tyreke Johnson on his first senior start 📸

It's a big night for 20-year-old Tyreke Johnson, who is making his first senior start for Southampton. Playing at left wing-back, he's been lively for Saints so far.

11’

Stephens goes close to an opener

Saints have forced a couple of corners now, and they nearly make one pay off as James Ward-Prowse sends in a typically-brilliant delivery, with Jack Stephens meeting it, only for his header to go a yard or so over.

7’

Johnson nearly unlocks Derby's defence

A fine ball in from the left is delivered by Tyreke Johnson, almost picking out the run of Shane Long, but he can't quite reach it, as the ball skids into the hands of Rams keeper Kelle Roos.

6’

Three at the back for Saints tonight

Ralph Hasenhüttl has started with three central defenders, as Kayne Ramsay joins Jack Stephens in the heart of the backline. Cédric is at right wing-back, with youngster Tyreke Johnson, who is making his first senior start, fulfilling duties on the left side.

1’

Gunn called into action

It's an early save for Angus Gunn on his return to the side, as he gets down to comfortably save a low Martyn Waghorn shot from 18 yards.
