General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 The goalkeeper is up for another corner, but it is cleared once again.
90' +3 Do Prado has a decent chance in the box, but his shot is deflected behind for a corner. The visitors have certainly worked hard today, and an away win would not be unjust.
90' +2 Lambert takes a long ball beautifully on the chest, but his shot on the turn is blocked. It falls to Ramirez, but his strike is once again foiled by a flying Sunderland man. It's Campbell back there to help his back four.
90' Southampton win a corner, but Sunderland are back en masse and hoof the ball clear. It falls to Nathaniel Clyne, but his shot goes way over from at least 30 yards out.
89' D. Vaughan enters the game and replaces S. Sessègnon.
88' Ramirez gives the ball away yet again in a promising position. Is he definitely the same player as in the first half?
86' The Mackems defenders have been mopping up everything the hosts have to throw at them, and two of them leap to make sure Ramirez's cross does not reach Lambert. The striker has mostly been feeding on scraps today.
85' Sunderland have the ball in the opposition half and show no sign of giving it up lightly. A ball into the box is dropped by Davis, who thought he was fouled by Sessegnon. Luckily for him, Yoshida is there to clear.
81' Guly enters the game and replaces J. Puncheon.
Adkins is throwing everything at it as his side desperately seek an equaliser. Do Prado comes on up front in the final change.
79' P. Bardsley gets yellow.
Sunderland are doing a good job of seeing this game out at the moment, not giving the hosts any time on the ball and getting to any loose passes straight away. It is all getting a little bit niggly here.
Bardsley cynically goes through the back of De Ridder and is rightly cautioned. The free kick is wasted though, yet again. Set pieces have generally been poor from the home side.
