    Was proud to be at delhurst park today. The team looked solid and with only one thing on their minds. THREE GIGANTIC POINTS. You could'nt single out a SINGLE player but, i must just say thank you Richard Chaplow, you were everywhere. Two more goals from Rickie and great support play by Adam. Both fullbacks up and down with good balls delivered. Stonewall central defending but it's what we have grown use to. Kelvin was the man with the elastic arms that just reached the ball when you thought it had got past him.Then Jack and Dean on the fiddle in the middle playing the tune that got the vocal backing to make my day PERFECT , everybody was just so Sharp but none more than our little Billy. THANK YOU Nigel, every game we get a little bit closer, it feels so good i dont want it to be over.
    Great post Bob...still buzzing here (which may well mean a slow start to the working week for me!)."

Hammers hang on with a point

Nigel Adkins - waiting game

Nigel Adkins - waiting game

First published in Sport

Ricardo Vaz Te’s dramatic penalty leveller for West Ham tonight ensured Saints will have to wait a bit longer to celebrate promotion.

Vaz Te converted an 89th minute spot-kick to give the Hammers a 3-3 draw at home to Birmingham – after they had trailed 3-1 with 20 minutes left.

Had West Ham lost to the Blues, Saints would have moved 10 points ahead of them by beating Reading at St Mary’s on Friday night.

Nigel Adkins’ men would then be celebrating promotion had the Hammers then lost at home to Brighton the following day.

As it is, even if Saints beat Reading and West Ham lose to Brighton, Saints will be nine points ahead of the Hammers with three games left - and boasting a superior goal difference.

But mathematically, they would not be assured of promotion prior to next Tuesday’s visit to Peterborough.

The best Palace v Saints coverage is in tomorrow’s Daily Echo.
