Southern, out of contract in the summer, scored his first goal since December 2012 and only his second for the club as Town secured their third win in eight league games with a 5-0 derby success against Barnsley.

The former Blackpool midfielder missed the start of the campaign with a calf injury and has made only eight appearances for Robins' side this season with competition tough for starting places in the middle of the park.

"He helped keep things ticking over in the middle of the park," said Robins after Saturday's win, in which Southern struck the opening goal in the 29th minute.

"He kept things nice and tight where we've been a little bit exposed in previous games.

"He's done particularly well here against Barnsley so I'm really pleased with his performance."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
