Rickie Lambert struck his fourth hat-trick of the season as Southampton staged a late fightback to defeat Millwall and remain top of the npower Championship standings.

Lambert, who was named npower Championship Player of the Year earlier this week, gave his side a 16th-minute lead but Millwall hit back and were leading 2-1 within 12 minutes following an own goal from Jose Fonte and a Paul Robinson strike.

Millwall retained that advantage until the 85th minute but, just when the leaders looked in danger of suffering their first defeat in 10 matches, Saints star Lambert turned the match on its head with two penalties in three minutes to earn his side a 3-2 win and take his goal tally for the season to 28.
