Southampton beat Cardiff

Southampton
1 - 0
Cardiff

St.Marys stadium, Southampton

21.10.07 13.15

Attendance: 20,796

Referee:

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.

Alexander Ostlund 6

Limoed off after a few minutes, played well when he was on though.

Alan Bennett 8

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

Christian Dailly 8

Headed the ball well, looked comfortable.

Phill Ifil 7

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

Nathan Dyer 7

Looked good on the occasion, poor touch throughout the game.

Inigo Idiakez 7

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

Youssef Safri 8

Passed the ball well, the stand in skipper played well and stopped everything Cardiff had to offer.

Jhon Viafara 8

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

Marek Saganowski 7

Didn't score but had a positive impact on the game.

Stern John 8

Held the ball up really well, got his goal, looks like a good deal for us.

Rudi Skacel 8

Replaced Ostlund after a few minutes, played super well!

Bradley Wright-Phillips 7

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

Jason Euell 7

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.
