Full report and reaction to follow on site.

90
FT: Swansea 0 Southampton 1. What a way to end their season at home for Swansea. A scrappy Southampton winner was the difference between two sides very much off the pace.

90
A scrappy goal to end a scrappy game. Long ball over the top is looped in the air by Ashley Williams, which flies over Vorm comes off the ball and drops into the net, via the back of Rickie Lambert. Ball seemed over the line already.

90
GOAL!!! Swansea 0 Southampton 1 (Williams OG 90+2).

90
Three added minutes...

88
Dyer looking to inject a bit of enthusiasm into it, but Luke Shaw does well to get his body in the way and bring the move to a halt.

86
Lambert runs the ball out of player as the players really look to have given this up. Be a good point for Saints, however,

84
Another change for Southampton. Jack Cork comes off and is replaced by Harrison Reid, another Saints youngster.

82
Substitute Marvin Emnes is very late on Fonte, and is given a yellow card as a result.

80
Game very much petering out, Swansea fans singing as they begin to relax and look forward to their celebration at the end.

78
James Ward-Prowse comes on in place of Sam Gallagher for the visitors.

76
Double change for the Swans. Emnes and Neil Taylor come on for Tiendalli and Hernandez.

74
Hernandez cuts inside twice, but scuffs his effort straight to Boruc. Story of the home side's match. Poor in the final third.

72
Silly defending from Clyne letting the ball run out, with the referee then pointing for the corner. Had time to clear if not sure.

70
Swansea almost seem ti have given up on this. Can't see a goal coming from them. Saints the likely winner here.

68
Schneiderlin drives from distance, keeps it low, but Vorm gets down comfortably to smother. Difficult to control, but not enough power.

67
Nathan Dyer comes on for De Guzman.

65
Really poor from both sides at the moment. Giving the ball away at every given opportunity. Davis has an effort that goes well over the top.

63
Fonte needlessly concedes a corner. Will certainly regret that if anything happens from it.

61
Rickie Lambert comes on for Adam Lallana. Once again the Southampton skipper is substituted.

59
Free-kick to Swansea on the edge of the box. First booking of the day given to Jose Fonte. Had no complaints.

57
Shelvey with an effort from distance which rolls harmlessly to Boruc. Hernandez ball in previously evaded everybody. Should have been attacked.

55
Shaw gets in behind, fires a low ball across the box, but somehow it is scrambled clear. Could have gone anywhere as it flew off the defender.

53
Scrappy at the moment. Both teams have taken their foot off the gas somewhat. Even the Saints are struggling with the ball.

51
Williams flicks over at the near post. Tried to get the slightest of glances on it, but just got too much connection.

49
Free-kick to Swansea after a foul by Lovren on Bony. Strange tackle. Dangerous position, but Fonte flicks the cross clear.

47
Corner for Saints.Wasted though, with it taken short, but comes to nothing. Really poor. Swansea now on the counter.

45
We are underway in the second half, with Southampton immediately having a strike at goal. Lallana though fires straight at Vorm.

The teams are out for the second half. Ashley Williams certainly plotting something on the edge of the box.

45
HT: Swansea 0 Southampton 0. Visitors dominant, without creating a great deal. Bony had a couple of chances, but home side struggling to get back in it.

44
Southampton full-backs getting plenty of joy down the flanks. Swansea wingers just can't keep hold of them at all.

42
Good build up play from Swansea finds Hernandez, but he lofts a hopeful ball into nobody in the box. Waste of an opportunity.

40
Tiendalli tracks Luke Shaw all the way into the box, and makes the challenge, and just gets it right. Split second later and it's a penalty.

38
Flag is up against Jack Cork. Ball should have gone in much earlier. Story of Southampton's half really. Final ball lacking.

36
Swansea now enjoying the lion's share of possession. Bony looks so dangerous. Makes some excellent runs.

34
CHANCE!!! Straight down the other end, Bony misses the chance of the game, firing over after latching onto a Hernandez header.

32
CHANCE!!! Free-header, six-yards out, but Gallagher heads over. Great ball in from Clyne, but Gallagher times jump wrong, but can't keep it down.

30
Wanyama dictating the pace of the game here. Just calmly spraying it around in the middle of the park.

28
Wanyama's turn to scuff an effort. Really are dominating still, but not enough where it really matters.

26
65% Southampton possession tells it's own story so far. Really need to make use of it, though. Breaking well, but lack a cutting edge.

24
Shaw fires a great ball across, but it just evades everyone in the box. It was begging to be converted. Real chance.

22
Swansea fans reacting to news of Cardiff falling behind. Not much to celebrate here so far. Saints still having most of the play.

20
Free-kick right on the edge of the box for Southampton. Could easily have been a penalty. Lovren fires just over the bar from the set-piece. Goalkeeper beaten.

18
Hernandez tries to flick the ball through to Bony, but cannot beat Fonte. Would have been clean through on goal.

16
Schneiderlin is picked out brilliantly by Luke Shaw in the box, but he gets it all wrong and heads well over the bar. Good chance.

14
More possession for the visitors. Starting to get a hold of this game, without creating a great deal. Have had the ball for the last few minutes.

12
Well worked free-kick finds Jack Cork, with space and time to shoot but the midfielder scuffs his effort and it is blocked.

10
Davis and Shaw both have speculative efforts from distance, but both are blocked by a Swansea defender. Not really in this at the moment the visitors.

8
Bony's flick again almost breaks the deadlock, but the ball flies just wide of the post. Home side really threatening here.

7
Swansea again on the attack. Davies whips a great ball in but Bony can't time his header and the ball is cleared to safety.

5
CHANCE!!! Swansea really should be in front. Good pressure from Jonjo Shelvey causes mistake, with the loose ball finding Bony, who flicks to Hernandez, but the Spaniard can't beat Boruc, who saves to his right, with De Guzman firing the rebound over the top.

4
Lallana has a little bit of space, but cannot get the ball out of his feet to play Sam Gallagher in. Would have been through.

2
Southampton starting to get hold of the ball now, with the pace of the game very impressive considering the circumstances.

1
Anthony Taylor is our referee today, and he gets us underway here.

Tiendalli starts for the first time under Garry Monk. Surprising that Neil Taylor didn't come in instead for the injured Angel Rangel.

The teams are on their way. Bit of a party atmosphere here with safety now assured. Are we set for plenty of goals here today?

Will another win be enough for the Swans board to entrust Garry Monk with the job on a long-term basis? Has certainly steadied the ship.

The Saints have gone 205 minutes without conceding a goal in the Premier League, following on from their record cleansheet run at the start of the season.

Southampton represent a formidable opponent these days. They need one more point to record a higher points total than they have in any of their last 11 top-flight seasons.

The Swans have already scored four more goals than they did last season and seven more than they did in their debut Premier League campaign.

Goals really have flowed for Swansea this season. Swansea are the top scoring team in the bottom half of the table (51 goals - only one fewer than sixth-placed Tottenham).

The omens aren't good for the Saints. Southampton are without a win in seven away league games against Swansea (D3 L4), not winning there since January 1962.

In-form Swansea are looking for a third straight win in the Premier League as they appear to have escaped the relegation battle. They are 13/10 favourites here --> http://www.skybet.com/football/premier-league/event/16477624

Swansea have scored in 16 of their 18 home league games this season; only Chelsea and Fulham (17) have scored in more (Arsenal, Liverpool & Man City also on 16).
