Match Preview

Pirates duo could return Bristol Rovers could be buoyed by the returns of Carl Regan and Dominic Blizzard ahead of the visit of Southampton. Defender Regan and midfielder Blizzard were absent from last weekend's draw against Exeter with respective Achilles and hamstring injuries. Byron Anthony picked up an knock in the game against the Grecians but is expected to be fit to start despite missing training earlier in the week. Summer recruit Will Hoskins will lead the Rovers attack alongside Jo Kuffour - the former strike partner of Saints dangerman Rickie Lambert during his time as a crowd favourite at the Memorial Stadium. Paul Trollope's men will be looking to build on their previous last-gasp 2-1 home win against Yeovil, while Saints are still looking for their first league victory of the season despite being many people's tip for promotion. Guilherme do Prado should be involved for Southampton. Boss Alan Pardew wanted to hand his new Brazilian midfielder, signed on an initial five-month loan deal from Italian side Cesena, his debut against Bolton in the Carling Cup on Tuesday but they did not receive international clearance in time. Centre-half Dan Seaborne missed the 1-0 midweek defeat with a foot injury and remains a doubt while full-back Frazer Richardson is still on the sidelines with a shoulder injury. Youngster Aaron Martin was chosen ahead of Radhi Jaidi at centre-back against Bolton and could keep his place after an impressive display. Striker Lambert lines up against the club for whom he scored 59 goal in three years.

Match Report

Lambert sinks old side Rickie Lambert was on target against his old club as Southampton thumped Bristol Rovers 4-0. The striker tucked away a 59th-minute penalty after Danny Coles had fouled Lee Barnard. By then the Saints were already two up and coasting. Defender Jose Fonte volleyed them ahead from a 10th-minute corner and Adam Lallana doubled the advantage with a close range finish after Dean Hammond's 34th minute shot had found him unmarked in front of goal. Barnard completed the rout by firing in off the crossbar in injury time and Rovers fans chanted "what a load of rubbish" at their team. They were outplayed for long periods, but Coles went close with a 31st-minute header, brilliantly saved at full stretch by Kelvin Davis, and Gary Sawyer saw a 73rd-minute volley hit the angle of post and crossbar. Will Hoskins also shot just wide as Saints coasted through the closing stages, having established their superiority long before. Lambert received a huge ovation from all sides of the ground when substituted 11 minutes from time. The former Rovers man remains hugely popular at the Memorial Stadium.
