    Huddersfield 1-3 Southampton

    Ralph Hasenhuttl is off his seat and onto the pitch, dancing with delight - well, almost. He stops for a quick word with Quaner and Mounie, but he's in amongst his players.

    It looks like Saints have turned a corner, but it's a bleak midwinter for Huddersfield.

    Thanks for looking in, and have a very merry Christmas.

    Southampton fans

    Huddersfield 1-3 Southampton

    It's all over - back to back wins for the Saints, and five straight defeats for Huddersfield.

  4. CLOSE!

    Huddersfield 1-3 Southampton

    Philip Billing rolls a cross across the six yard box, but with Steve Mounie begging for it in front of him, it rolls behind his ankles and a chance goes begging.

  5. Post update

    Steve Mounie mis-hits a chance from inside the box straight at a defender.

  7. CLOSE!

    Huddersfield 1-3 Southampton

    Michael Obafemi is having a superb cameo appearance, and he races in on goal and forces Jonas Lossl to make a save low to his left.

    Tim: Ralph Hasenhuttl would have been on many Saints' Christmas lists - delighted he arrived a couple of weeks early!

    Dan: Time for a change at Huddersfield Town. Poor summer signings has cost us big.

    Huddersfield 1-3 Southampton

    Oooof! That is one crunching challenge from Pierre-Emile Højbjerg on Philip Billing, and that's an easy yellow card for Mr Atwell.


    Huddersfield 1-3 Southampton

    Collin Quaner is on for Isaac Mbenza.

  11. Post update

    Huddersfield 1-3 Southampton

    A poor pass from Mathias Jorgensen gives Obafemi a sniff, but Erik Durm races back to spare his team-mate's blushes with a decent tackle.

    Yan Valery departs, replaced by Jack Stephens.

  13. Post update

    Huddersfield 1-3 Southampton

    Elias Kachunga gets a half-chance at a corner, fed by Philip Billing, but his shot on the turn is wild and flies over the bar.

    Michael Obafemi

    Oh dear - Christopher Schindler gets into a terrible tangle on the left near the box, losing it to Nathan Redmond. He then slips the ball to Michael Obafemi, who steadies himself before calmly rolling the ball into the bottom corner from near the spot for his first top flight goal.

    At 18 years and 169 days, he is Southampton's youngest Premier League scorer.

    And that looks like that for Huddersfield.

    Huddersfield 1-2 Southampton

    Stuart Armstrong is replaced, to a smattering of boos, by Mario Lemina.

  16. Post update

    Huddersfield 1-2 Southampton

    Lots of pressure from the hosts, and Alex Pritchard shoots on goal - but it's straight at Alex McCarthy.

    But this is much better from Huddersfield - a totally different proposition since the break.


    Huddersfield 1-2 Southampton

    Danny Ings goes for the early bath, Michael Obafemi is on.

    And Elias Kachunga is on for Bacuna.


    Huddersfield 1-2 Southampton

    Mathias Jorgensen makes a clumsy tackle and is booked, but he also catches Stuart Armstrong as the Saints player hits the deck. He rolls around a bit, then gets straight up unhurt, prompting 'cheat' chants from the home fans.

    It's getting lively.


    Huddersfield 1-2 Southampton

    It's all happening!

    Steve Mounie, in the area, taps it back to Isaac Mbenza and his shot forces McCarthy to drop to his left to make another excellent save.

    Hope for Huddersfield?

  20. GOAL - Huddersfield 1-2 Southampton

    Philip Billing


    Philip Billing strolls sideways, then from about 25 yards out he spins round and sends in a left-footed shot that swerves slightly in the air to deceive Alex McCarthy and fly in just low to the keeper's right.
