Match Preview

Saints missing Gobern Southampton will be without suspended midfielder Oscar Gobern for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday. Gobern was sent off in Saints' 3-1 victory against south coast rivals Bournemouth and will now serve a three-match ban. Frenchman Morgan Schneiderlin is out with a knee injury, leaving Dean Hammond and Richard Chaplow as the only fit central midfielders in the first-team squad. Guly Do Prado is nearing a return to action after being sidelined by a hamstring injury for the past three weeks, but this game will come too soon for the Brazilian midfielder. The same goes for Bartosz Bialkowski, who has not played since January following a knee injury he sustained in training. Joseph Mills and Jason Puncheon are currently out on loan at Doncaster and Blackpool respectively. Sheffield Wednesday's two new loan signings Danny Batth and Rob Jones are expected to go straight into the starting line-up. Wolves defender Batth, 20, and fellow centre-half Jones, 31, from Scunthorpe, joined the Owls in time this week until the end of the season. Another central defender, Mark Beevers, is out for the rest of the campaign after fracturing his cheekbone early in the midweek defeat to Peterborough. Manager Gary Megson has promised several changes and confirmed striker Paul Heffernan will start, probably alongside Gary Madine, while versatile defender Lewis Buxton is pushing for a place in the squad following a long-term hamstring injury. Megson, who has no other new injury or suspension problems, could recall midfielder Chris Sedgwick to the squad as his side bid to avoid a third successive league defeat.

Match Report

Saints see off Owls Goals from Jose Fonte and Rickie Lambert helped Southampton continue their automatic promotion charge with a 2-0 win which left Sheffield Wednesday mired in relegation trouble. Southampton made all the running in a goalless first period, Lambert testing Owls debutant keeper Richard O'Donnell with a low free-kick and Adam Lallana also going close with a low drive in the opening 20 minutes. Saints captain Dean Hammond also forced a smart save from youngster O'Donnell with a 20-yard volley after the break, but the rookie keeper could do nothing about Southampton's opener. From Alex Chamberlain's pinpoint corner, Fonte rose highest to thump home a powerful header from six yards and give the home side the lead on the hour. The lead was doubled just five minutes later, Lee Barnard's deflected shot bouncing perfectly into the path of the onrushing Lambert, who half-volleyed home from 10 yards. Nigel Adkins' side were now rampant, the impressive Lallana unlucky not to add a third after seeing a vicious first-time drive crash into the base of the post with the keeper beaten. Teenage sensation Chamberlain also went close with a curling effort which O'Donnell acrobatically palmed to safety as Southampton comfortably wrapped up a fourth consecutive league win.
