  • "David Letterman's top ten reasons why Saints will not be promoted:
    10. We should have scored more goals
    9. They had too many corners
    8. We had one more booking
    7. They came with a slim chance and we let them think that for 15 minutes
    6. Sharp did not score - we wasted our money
    5. Chaplow did not dominate
    4. AL only scored once
    3. Ricky did not score at all
    2. Our defenders shoot better that the front two
    And the number one reason
    1. Kelv did not score
    COYR."

Saints destroy Derby to regain top spot

Daily Echo: Saints destroy Derby to regain top spot Saints destroy Derby to regain top spot

SAINTS climbed back to the top of the Championship after demolishing Derby 4-0 at St Mary’s today.

Goals from Jos Hooiveld, Aaron Martin, Adam Lallana and Tadanari Lee lifted them above West Ham, who are not in action this weekend.

Saints are now two points clear of the Hammers at the head of the table, although they have played twice more than Sam Allardyce’s side.

Nigel Adkins’ men also lead third-placed Reading by five points, with the Royals holding one game in hand on them.

And Saints received an extra boost today, as fourth-placed Cardiff slipped up 3-0 at Ipswich.
