Stephen Pearson's second half strike saw Bristol City pull away from the relegation zone and end Southampton's 25-match unbeaten home league record with a 1-0 victory at St. Mary's.

Pearson converted 11 minutes from time to give the Robins their first victory in six matches and deny Southampton the chance of extending their three-point lead at the top of the npower Championship.

The victory for Derek McInnes' side sees them move three points clear of the bottom three, while Southampton's 2011 unbeaten home league record was ended in their 50th and final league match of this calendar year.
