Lambert hat-trick sends Saints top

Published Add your comment

Rickie Lambert ended a mini goal drought with a hat-trick to put Southampton back on top of the npower Championship with a 3-0 victory at Watford.

Lambert glanced in a header for the opener and good build-up play from Morgan Schneiderlin and Adam Lallana set up the striker to double Saints' advantage.

He then rounded off his treble in the 73rd minute to send the Saints a point clear of West Ham, who played out a goalless draw at home to Crystal Palace.
