Southampton returned to winning ways thanks to Guly Do Prado`s late strike.
Do Prado netted from the edge of the box to keep Saints in second spot.
Rickie Lambert was denied by Conrad Logan early on before Do Prado and Jonathan Forte went close.
A long-range effort from Will Hoskins aside, Rovers offered little.
