David van Zanten got in on the act, scoring his first goal in six years, as Saints came from 2-1 down to record just their second away win of the campaign.

"It's a fantastic three points for us and a terrific way to finish 2012,"

Lennon said.

"The key thing for us and our success today was the work-rate for the players individually and, more importantly, as a team.

"We're just going to ask the boys for one last push before a welcome break and

look for the same commitment, the same work ethic and the same quality.

Saints hope to have a new recruit for Wednesday's visit of Kilmarnock, in the shape of Newcastle midfielder Conor Newton on a six-month loan.

Van Zanten's goal means he will not have to don a mankini and sing 'Like a Virgin' in front of fans - a fate that would have befallen him had he not scored this season.

The right-back, who had not scored since 2006 while he was at Hibernian, said: "A couple of my team-mates are raging, but it's more important we got the three points."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
