Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).

90'

And there is the full-time whistle - both teams have to settle for a point.

89'

Agustien in the book for a rash challenge to stop a Saints counter.

88'  

Swansea pushing late, some desperate defending by Saints.

86'

De Guzman off, Kemy Augustien on.

85' 

Lallana with a great turn and shoot with Rangel diving to block his effort.

84' 

Andre Mariner waves off Lallana's penalty shout on the edge of teh box as Saints continue to push for a goal.

82' 

Yoshida tries a spectacular overhead - the ball ends up in row Z. Time is running out for the home side to help their boss out with a win.

79' 

Cork blast a half-volley well over, after Lambert continues to win headers for his side.

76'

Deflected Puncheon shot loops wide for a corner - Lambert gets across his marker but his glancing header goes inches past the far post.

75' 

Shechter sneaks offside on the break - would have been one on one with Gazzaniga if he had held his run be just half a yard.

74' 

Heartbreaking goal for Adkins - Gazzaniga put his defender in real trouble with a really poor pass out.

73'

Danny Fox on for Shaw.

72'

Supersub Dyer punishes slopppy play at the back, picking the pocket of Yoshida and finishing well across the face of Gazzaniga.

71' 

The St Mary's crowd are in good voice, and Saints continue to threaten. Clyne and Puncheon linking well on the right wing but Williams come up with a good block

69' 

With QPR one dow at Stoke and Reading v Norwich currently goalless, a win would lift Southampton past their two relegation rivals.

67'

Swansea have conceeded first in 75% of away games. Laudrup has brought on Italy Shechter for Britton as a response.

64' 

Two defenders went to Lambert who, six yards out, played n the frenchman. Schneiderlin takes a beautiful touch to go past the defender and head past Tremmel.

63'

Schneiderlin heads in from close reange from a nod down from Lambert.

62'

Lallana booked for diving under heavy contact in the box from Williams. He looked to be going down before the challenge.

61' 

All Saints at the moment. Swansea can't win a second ball in their own box and Ramirez falls trying an overhead.

61' 

The centre-forward probably should have done the same for Ramirez seconds earlier, but took too long picking a pass.

60' 

Monk comes up with another huge block as Ramirez dances round defender's on the edge of the box and looking to slip the ball into Lambert.

57' 

Great opportunity for Saints - Britton is robbed just outside his own box but Schneiderlin's square ball rolls agonisingly short of a waiting Lambert.

56'

It's Routledge's last touch as he makes way for Nathan Dyer.

55'

Routledge goes close with a curling first-time effort from the edge of the box. Hernadez drove well to the byline before picking out Routledge as he pulled away from his defender.

54' 

Saints couter-attack well through Clyne but Lallana loses his feet in a dangerous position.

52' 

Well defended by Saints as a Danny Graham-less Swansea look to lack an aerial threat in the box.

51' 

Michu starts a break that slows before Ki drives well into the box before laying back to Rangel - whose deflected shot goes out for a corner.

49' 

Puncheon foghts off two defenders to win a throw in the right corner. Good pressure by Saints.

48' 

Michu fouled on the break, but the advantage played by the referee comes to nothing. The Spaniard gets up looking the frustrated figure.

46' 

Great skill by Lallana to draw a foul - but the ball in disappoints. Easily taken by the Swansea keeper.

46' 

Michu came out of the tunnel on his own, several minutes before his team-mates and did not look happy.

45' 

Southampton kick-off. No changes to either side.

45' 

At half-time Swansea edge the possession stats 52%-48%, but have come up with just two attempts compared with Southampton's five.

45' 

Both Cork and Shaw have impressed in their Premier League bows at St Mary's, but their left-side partnership will have to stay switched on to the threat of Rangel on that side.

45' 

Familiar criticisms dog Swansea's first-half performance - Laudrup's side have looked accomplished in possession but rarely shown a cutting edge when they get into the final third. Michu, also has been quiet.

45' 

Predictably, Lambert's hold up play has been strong - but Adkins will be pleased with how Lallana and Ramirez have ran off the run man. Both look dangerous, and the home side look the more likely to break the deadlock.

45' 

The whistle goes for half-time and Southampton are on track for their fifth point of the season.

44' 

In three successive losses on the road, Laudrup's players have failed to find a goal. They've rarely troubled Gazzaniga here today.

42' 

Angel easily beats Lallana at the other end but is unable to pick out Routledge in the middle. De Guzman fouls in the middle as the corner comes in.

41'

Lallana picks up the rebound from his own corner, beating Britton out wide and aiming a curling shot at the far corner that goes just wide.

40' 

The ball deflects nicely into Ramirez's pass, and his cross is blocked for a corner.

37' 

Rangel whistled for simulation as he breaks towards the byline. The Spaniard has provided good width for a increasingly narrow Swansea formation.

36' 

Lambert whistled for a push as he challenges for a header - right call, but as usual Lambert's presence is keeping his opposition busy.

34'

Ashley Williams follows the frenchman into the book - blocking off Ramirez as he drove forward.

33' 

Leon Britton is controlling the tempo for the away side - the Swans' pass master has stepped up well this year after teh departure of Joe Allen.

33'

Scneiderlin comes through late on Leon Britton for the game's first booking.

31' 

Ashley Williams heads behind for another corner, after Lambert peels away at the back post.

29' 

Lambert cushions a nice header to play in Schneiderlin out wide. Saints corner.

28' 

Swansea's midfield appear happy to hold a little deeper and challenge Saints to play through them - and they've struggled to do so in the early exchanges.

27' 

Laudrup will not be happy with his defense conceding possession there to give Ramirez the opportunity. Sloppy by Swansea.

26' 

Ramirez lets fly with a left-foot drive from outside the box with just drifts wide. The Uruguayan looks to be the danger man for the home side.

25' 

Shaw with a really positive opening, running down Hernadez and winning possession.

22' 

Ramirez drives at the Swansea defense but Lallana is not on the same wavelength and the Uruguayan's pass runs through to the Swan's keeper.

20' 

The Southampton keeper looking nervy as he comes to claim the corner and misses, cleaned up b Clyne.

19' 

Ki Sung-Yeaung cuts in to beat his man and takes aim at the near post with a whipped shot, pushed round the post for a corner.

18' 

Rangel gets to the by-line but Shaw does well to force a corner.

17' 

Nathan Clyne slides to intercept a through ball looking for Routledge - great play by the full-back. The Swansea striker would have been through on goal.

17' 

Swansea started the stronger, but Saints have really grown into the game and look dangerous going forward.

16' 

Lallana returns the favour, holding up the ball well and laying off for Ramirez who unleashes a strong right-foot drive that goes past the far post.

13' 

Lambert flicks on a header to Lallana who shoots early from the edge of the box. It takes a slight deflection and the Swansea keeper gets down well.

12' 

Angel Rangel makes a great run down the right wing but Li's crossfield pass is too heavy. The full-back is not shy in going forward and Saints will have to be aware of him.

11' 

Ramirez drops deep but is caught in possession - hounded by the Swansea midfield.

10' 

Hernandez - who got the goal last week against Chelsea - draws a corner, but de Guzman's ball in is easily cleared.

8' 

Adam Lallana, Lambert and Puncheon link up well in the Swansea box, before laying it back to the frenchman Morgan Schneiderlinwho blasts over.

7' 

Swansea with their first quality attack - Puncheon does well out on the right wing, pulling a ball back for Ricky Lambert bu the striker is unable to get to it.

6' 

Hernadez finds space wide on the right, but cannot control possession. Swansea are using the full width of the pitch to stretch Southampton.

5' 

Puncheon with the first foul of the game, a frustrated challenge on Michu.

4' 

Swansea looking dangerous - Pablo Hernadez beating his man on the edge of the box before losing possesion.

3' 

Cork working hard to press the Swasea midfield, but the away side move the ball well to keep possession.

2' 

Wayne Routledge runs in behind the denfece and picks up a chipped through ball, but is unable to bring it down and shoot.

1' 

Swasea start in possession, moving the ball comfortably around their backline

15:00 

The players observe a minutes silence, and on the whistle Adkins returns the fans applause.

14:55 

With the game set to kick off - let us know what you think. Tweet me on @AKnight_Esq

14:55 

The teams make their way out to a great reception at St Mary's. The Southampton fans made their feelings known at West Brom - singing the name of the manager who guided Saints to two promotions.

14:50 

At the other end, Swansea's star keeper Micael Vorm is again sidelined with a groin injury while Chico Flores misses out on a late fitness test. Garry Monk captains the side from the back in what is set to be his 250th game for Swansea in all competitions.

14:45 

Saint's goal-keeping woes continue off the field, with Polish international Artur Boruc again overlooked following allegations that he threw a bottle at home fans a fortnight ago.

14:45 

While Saint's back four have come under real scrutiny, their goal keeper's have hardly covered themselves in glory - letting in a league worst 51% of shots on target.

14:40 

Michu will fancy his chances against a defence that has conceded a joint Premier League record 28 goals in their opening 10 games.

14:35 

Laudrup will look to Michu to continue his side's recent return to form - following good performances aginst Chelsea and Liverpool. Swansea have won every time the Spaniard has scored.

14:30 

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is well aware of the dangers in facing bottom club Southampton. "I don't like to use the word desperate... but Southampton need to win. We don't need to win like they do."

14:25 

Luke Shaw's will be Southampton's youngest ever Premiership player - the 17-year old coming in alongside Jason Puncheon up front for the home side.

14:20 

Cork will be joined in midfield by Saints' record signing Gaston Ramirez after his return in their 2-0 defeat by form side West Brom on Monday night.

14:15 

So under-fire Adkins will no doubt welcome the returen of Team GB's Jack Cork - an ever-present his side's Championship success, Cork has been unavailable so far this season with a knee injury.
