Nigel Adkins' Southampton missed the chance to move four points clear at the top of the npower Championship as a late equaliser from Jason Scotland grabbed Ipswich a point at St Mary's Stadium.

Saints looked on their way to another priceless victory when Rickie Lambert lashed home his 25th goal of the season in the 74th minute - but Scotland struck five minutes from time to claim a 1-1 draw.

Saints are now just two points above second-placed West Ham, who have a game in hand, and three over third-placed Reading, for whom Noel Hunt hit a first half winner in a 1-0 win over crisis club Portsmouth.
