RICKIE Lambert is hoping Saints can build on their “brilliant” performance against Swansea.

Despite dominating the play and taking the lead midway through the second half, a defensive mishap once again cost Nigel Adkins' side as they were held to a 1-1 draw by the Swans at St Mary’s.

"It was very disappointing," Lambert said ahead of tomorrow’s critical trip to fellow Premier League strugglers Swansea. "I think the performance was brilliant.

“The performances this season have been good.

“It is just little mistakes that are costing us and again it cost us on Saturday.

"But we're confident that we can forget about the mistake and get on and obviously try and get three points on Saturday.

"It is frustrating but we've got to keep on going.

“That's what the gaffer has done this season. Put it to bed and remain optimistic about the next game."
