Match Preview

Saints hopeful over Lallana Adam Lallana could be available when leaders Southampton take on second-placed West Ham. The attacking midfielder was ruled out of Saturday's 1-1 draw at Derby with a foot injury but boss Nigel Adkins is hopeful he will be passed fit. Defender Frazer Richardson is a doubt after he limped off against the Rams. Midfielder Jack Cork dropped into the back four at Pride Park but Danny Butterfield is a natural replacement at right-back and could earn a recall to the squad. Centre-half Dan Seabourne is still recovering from head injuries sustained in an assault. Veteran striker David Connolly, who spent a season with the Hammers eight years ago, will line up against his old club alongside 11-goal top scorer Rickie Lambert. James Tomkins and Matt Taylor are injury doubts for West Ham. Centre-half Tomkins came off against Blackpool on Saturday with a groin problem and midfielder Taylor is still feeling a calf injury. But fit-again full-back Joey O'Brien (hamstring) returns along with midfielder Henri Lansbury and striker Carlton Cole, who were rested at the weekend. Robert Green (knee) is still out so Manuel Almunia keeps his place in goal, while wingers David Bentley (knee) and Gary O'Neil (ankle) are long-term absentees. Boss Sam Allardyce must decide whether to stick with two up front after John Carew and Sam Baldock were both on target in Saturday's 4-0 win, or revert to a lone striker against the leaders.

Match Report

Hooiveld header snatches Saints win Southampton maintained their 100% home record and stretched their lead at the top of the npower Championship as Jos Hooiveld's header proved enough to end second-placed West Ham's unbeaten away record. On-loan Celtic defender Hooiveld powered home the winner on the stroke of half-time in front of a St Mary's record crowd of 32,150, but they were put under immense pressure by the Hammers, who hit the post late on through Mark Noble's cross-shot. The visitors started brightly, with Matt Taylor testing Kelvin Davis with a low drive inside the opening minute. Saints' response came from returning skipper Dean Hammond who fizzed a shot over the crossbar from 30 yards and then tried his luck again from distance but with the same outcome shortly afterwards. West Ham were forced to make an early substitution when Taylor limped off to be replaced by Frederic Piquionne with what looked to be a recurrence of a calf injury. It was the home side who were on top as the half progressed. Richard Chaplow should have done better with a close-range volley. The Hammers hit back as Piquionne sent John Carew clear down the left. He picked out captain Kevin Nolan but his 22-yard curling shot flew inches past the upright. Striker Sam Baldock, who scored his first goals for West Ham on Saturday, looked set to get his name on the scoresheet again in the 36th minute but his hooked effort from eight yards was well blocked by the legs of Davis. That sparked Southampton back into life, and after David Connolly saw a first-time volley gathered by Manuel Almunia, they opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time. Hammond's corner from the right picked out Hooiveld and the on-loan Celtic defender powered a header past the keeper. It was the home side who bossed the opening stages of the second half, with a succession of corners ending with Winston Reid blazing over. A Rickie Lambert free-kick was deflected wide for Saints and at the other end Baldock found himself one on one with Davis but sent his curling strike past the post as the game opened up. A slip from Papa Bouba Diop allowed Connolly to race forward and bend a shot just wide, and the same player spurned another chance moments later. Sam Allardyce's side continued to press, though, and a well-worked free-kick saw Nolan roll his marker and bring another good stop from Davis. Chaplow was not too far away with an angled drive and Guly Do Prado curled an effort past the far post as Saints came back into it. Guly was presented with another opportunity when a mix-up between George McCartney and Noble allowed Lambert to pick him out, but the Brazilian saw his shot blocked by Almunia. In a frantic finish, Noble saw a free-kick tipped onto the roof of the net and from the resulting corner his cross flicked off the head of a defender and came back off the far post but Southampton held on.
