Jay Rodriguez

'And the prestigious award of Ollie Gentle's Player of the day goes to... Jay Rodriguez!'

Rodriguez was fantastic for Southampton today, with the youngster chipping in with a brace along with an assist.

Southampton won the game 3-0, piling more misery on Cardiff boss Malky Mackay, who may well be sacked before Saturday's game.

Rodriguez has now scored eight goals this season, and Southampton's six game spell without a win is now certainly over.

If Rodriguez, along with fellow striker Rickie Lambert, can smash in the goals this season, not only will Southampton reach new heights in the Premier League table, they may well see themselves on the plane to Brazil in the summer.
