At last - we've won a game!

What a difference three points can make. It may not have been a classic performance, but penalties either side of half time secured Saints their first win of the season at St Mary's yesterday, at last providing points-starved fans with something to smile about.

Saints 2 - Yeovil 0

We may remain anchored to the foot of League One, but the win should imbue Pardew's side with that most treasured asset, confidence, and enable them to carry on winning after a glut of draws. It was not pretty - League One rarely is - but the importance of this result lies in the fact Saints won without playing particularly well against a highly average Yeovil team.

Now unbeaten in five, just won more win will take Saints into positive points for the season. It still promises to be a long, hard slog but it could be worse - Tranmere fans have John Barnes as manager, after all.

just 'won' more win?

Which team will fill the third relegation spot?

Four games left. Will Saints survive?

Would you be in favour of a return for Rupert?
