Southampton 1 - Cardiff 0

St.Marys stadium, Southampton

21.10.07 13.15

Attendance: 20,796

Southampton beat Cardiff

Saints turned out to get rid off this shocking Sky Record, no points for 2 years infront of the Sky Cameras.

Stern John grabbed the only goal 15 minutes in. The game produced little as far as chances went

Cardiff never looked like scoring, Kelvin Davis and Bennett and Dailly at the back looked comfortable.

Only real chances of note were Jason Euell firing over from 12 yards when the keeper was on the floor, right at the end Alan Bennett blocked superbly from Fowler, before that Kelvin Davis had made some excellent saves to keep saints first clean sheet at home for 6 months.

Star Player

Kelvin Davis made some superb saves when called upon, his kicking was superb as well, we could have been playing all day and nothing would have got past him.

Player Ratings


Kelvin Davis 9

Was superb, did very well and made some fantastic saves.

Superb block at the end, was a thousand times the player he was against Crystal Palace

Phill Ifil 7

Out of position on occasions, struggled with the pace of the game but held it together.

Set-pieces weren't great but made good runs into the Cardiff box.

Did what he usuall does, gets the ball, runs, passes, tackles.

Offered extra pace up top, didn't have much of an impact though.

Had a few minutes on the pitch and should have scored a sitter, nevertheless he added flair into the midfield!

I thought Cardiff looked much the better team for long periods and you was very lucky to get all three points.
