    You are a man of honour, if only you were all like that, although I must admit that most of whom I know are too. Good luck yourselves..."

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.
