Saints Stuff Barnsley 5-2!


Saints moved up to 4th with a 5-2 home win against Struggling Barnsley


Southampton put five past struggling Barnsley as they stuffed the Tykes at St Marys Stadium.

Andrew Surman got a hat-trick with Kenwyne Jones getting the other two goals for the home side.

It had looked like it was all going wrong for Southampton after Barnsley had taken the lead and later levelled the game with goals from Daniel Nardiello making it 1-0 and Ferenczi later making it 2-2.

But Saints turned on the style in the second half and put 3 past the away side in the final 25 minutes. Jones put saints back in the lead from the penalty spot on 73 minutes and Andrew Surman got a late couple of goals to get his hattrick, the last goal coming in the 91st minute again from the spot.

Saints did get plenty more goal scoring chances, they hit the post with a Ostlund pile driver and Sagonowski had numerous chances to score during the game aswell.

Southampton fans had been hopeing for a change in there teams bad run of ref luck, and today decisions went Saints way for once. But there can be little doubt about either of the two penalty's being the correct decison and the sending off was stone clad.

The game also saw Barnsley's Daniel Nardiello get a red card and the Tykes assistant manager sent to the stand following an argument with the ref about Saints first penalty.
