    |A home win - again! Back to back. The win against the hapless Watford at the weekend has instilled some confidence back into a side that for many games has just been totally devoid of any sense of self-belief. From the way they started there was a fire and passion that has been sadly missing in performances so far this season at St.Mary's.

    The only change to the starting line-up from Saturday was the inclusion of Shane Long, at the expense of Obafemi, who dropped to the bench. Valery's place on the bench was filled instead by Kevin Danso.

    |Well, this time I will be doing a proper match report, after becoming totally disillusioned in recent weeks. Sodt's law being in operation, I am really busy at the moment and after two back to back wins at St.Mary's, we will probably end up with both reports up almost simultaneously later in the week

    Shane Long had a good game, harrying and generally unsettling any Norwich player that came near to the ball
