    FT: Southampton 3-1 Crystal Palace

    That's all I've got time for tonight.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Southampton 3-1 Crystal Palace

    That's it, the full-time whistle blows.

    Late goals from Maya Yoshida and James Ward-Prowse seal victory for Saints.

    Hull's victory over Middlesbrough mean Crystal Palace slip closer to the relegation zone.

  3. Post update

    Southampton 3-1 Crystal Palace

    Jason Puncheon bends over a free-kick for Palace but Fraser Forster tips it over.

    That could be the last chance for the visitors.

  4. SUBSTITUTION

    Southampton 3-1 Crystal Palace

    Both sides have made substitutions. Mathieu Flamini replaces Luka Milivojevic for Palace and Jay Rodriguez is on for Nathan Redmond.

    There will be four minutes of injury time.

  5. Ward-Prowse seals the win

    Southampton 3-1 Crystal Palace

    Game over.

    Cedric Soares finds some room down the right, finds James Ward-Prowse in the centre of the box and he places it past Wayne Hennessey.

    Two goals in the blink of an eye.

  7. Yoshida taps in for Saints

    Southampton 2-1 Crystal Palace

    Maya Yoshida may have won the game for Saints!

    The Japan defender has an easy tap in from Jack Stephens' pass.

  9. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace are putting their bodies on the line to keep hold of this point.

    An unmarked Steven Davis runs onto a square ball but his shot is brilliantly blocked by the wall that is Mamadou Sakho.

    Davis pounces on the follow-up but Damien Delaney gets in the way and it's out for a corner.

  10. YELLOW CARD

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Cedric Soares becomes the second Palace player to go into the book for a rather cynical foul on Bakary Sako.

    The Portugal right-back has no complaints.

  11. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is proving a formidable force between the sticks once again.

    The Wales international first tips Oriol Romeu's deflected strike from outside the box wide, before holding onto Maya Yoshida's header from the corner.

    Around 15 minutes left for someone to find a winner. 

  12. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Shane Long can't score tonight, but that's fine defending from the forward.

    Palace defender Damien Delaney attacks a corner, it's heading towards goal, but Long heads away.

    Good pressure from the visitors.

  13. YELLOW CARD

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu goes into the book for a clumsy challenge on Wilfried Zaha.

    It's the midfielder's 10th booking of the season and he'll be banned for Saints' next two games.

  14. GREAT SAVE!

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    How many chances does Shane Long want?

    The Southampton striker latches onto a long ball over the top from Dusan Tadic - he's clean through, but his shot lacks enough power to beat Wayne Hennessey who tips it wide.

    It was a fine save but he had to give the keeper no chance at all.

  15. HITS THE POST

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Palace hit the post for the second time!

    Martin Kelly finds some room in the box and crashes a shot against the upright.

    Wilfried Zaha sends the rebound well wide.

  16. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Just under 30 minutes to go and a draw is unlikely to help either of these sides looking at the other scores.

    Hull are beating Middlesbrough and Swansea are leading Tottenham.

    As things stand, Saints and Palace will be slipping closer to the relegation zone.

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace make their second switch of the evening.

    Damien Delaney replaces Jeffrey Schlupp. 

    It appears Sam Allardyce is resorting to three at the back as he did at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.

  18. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    It's not Shane Long's night.

    Dusan Tadic plays a perfectly weighted ball through to the Southampton striker who tries to lift it over Wayne Hennessey but he gets too much on it and it goes over.

    He probably should have scored.

  19. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Goodness me, that would have been a contender for goal of the season if it had gone in!

    Palace's Andros Townsend hooks the ball over his head from the centre of the penalty area and the ball lands on the roof of the net.

    It took a slight deflection and a corner is given, but nothing comes of it.

  20. CLOSE!

    Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace

    How close is that?!

    Nathan Redmond does brilliantly to control the ball on the touchline and pull it back to James Ward-Prowse on the penalty spot, but his fierce shot is blocked by Mamadou Sakho.

    The ball then finds Cedric Soares who lets fly, but his effort goes inches wide.
