George Burley played down the clash between Chris Baird and Kelvin Davis in the closing stages of Saints' pulsating win over Birmingham.

With Baird having just inadvertently flicked Radhi Jaidi's header into his own net to make the score 4-3 with only stoppage time left and Saints having earlier led 3-0, tensions were high at St Mary's.

Initially words were exchanged before the pair started shoving each other.

The situation was getting heated before their teammates stepped in to calm the situation.

However, Burley believes it was purely heat of the moment stuff.

He said: "Emotions everywhere were running high.

"When you're 3-0 up and then 4-3 and just conceded a goal it was an emotional game, but they're best of friends in the dressing room.

"Everybody was getting worked up in the end!"
