    Insane saint, the missus and myself went to the game today. We can now, barely talk.
    The team were fantastic on the pitch and the fans were at a different level.
    Palace support was almost unheard by us.
    We were noisy very noisy.6000 screaming as one, was something we will never forget.
    The fans were in the roads outside the pubs, as we passed in the coach, chanting and generally having a great time. At times during the game it looked like Palace had given up. Credit to Saints, they completely
    outplayed and demoralised them.The players were outstanding.
    Dean Hammond was exceptional he led the team as the captain should.
    It is great to hear from all of our posters from all around the world who demonstrate their fantastic support for our great team.
    I know most of you will not be able to get to see this great team in the flesh but rest assured it is in safe hands with the best supporters in the land.

    Here's to the Saints and here's to us supporters.

    Roll on Friday. Bring on Reading.

    PREM here we come.
    You make me proud. Thanks for the update."

Hammers hang on with a point

Nigel Adkins - waiting game

Nigel Adkins - waiting game

First published in Saints News

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.
