Rickie Lambert's last-gasp goal earned npower Championship leaders Southampton a deserved draw against Blackpool as fellow high-fliers West Ham faltered again.

The 29-year-old headed home deep into stoppage time to earn Saints a point that had looked unlikely when goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski gifted the visitors the lead.

Lambert had broken the deadlock for Southampton, before Chris Basham headed home and Callum McManaman's weak shot dribbled through the former Poland Under-21 international's legs and into the net. Lambert late equaliser helped save Bialkowski's blushes in part, while he will have been relieved to see second-place West Ham lose at Reading.
