Late goal by Rickie Lambert earns Southampton 1-0 win at Swansea in Premier League

  • Print

SWANSEA, Wales - England striker Rickie Lambert scored a fortuitous goal in the third minute of injury time to give Southampton a 1-0 win at Swansea in the Premier League on Saturday.

Swansea captain Ashley Williams' attempted clearance looped high over home goalkeeper Michel Vorm and the ball went in off Lambert's back.

The result confirmed Southampton will finish in eighth place, with the team now five points behind Manchester United ahead of a home match against the deposed champions in their final games next weekend.

Swansea guaranteed another season in the English top flight with a win over Aston Villa last weekend and was second-best to the visitors at Liberty Stadium.
