Four additional minutes ⏱
Into added time we go with Saints frantically in search of a late leveller.
Højbjerg denied! 😩
Ryan Bertrand's cross finds Pierre-Emile Højbjerg at the back post, but with the angle against him, Nick Pope makes himself big to block the shot.
Rodriguez goes close
Jay Rodriguez looks to catch Alex McCarthy out with a quickly taken shot from the edge of the box, but the Saints stopper parries over the bar.

MIchael Obafemi is shown a yellow card for an intentional handball.
Vydra hits on the break
Saints have numbered forwarded and Matej Vydra is found on the break, but his shot is a tame one.
Huge handball claim!!!
Jack Stephens's cross cannons off of the arm of Ben Mee, but a VAR check decides it's no handball to the bemusement of all inside St Mary's.
Burnley sitting deep
Nearing the final 10 minutes, Sean Dyche's side are more than content to sit deep and look to hit Saints on the break as they push forward in numbers.
Armstrong fires over
The resultant corner comes out to Stuart Armstrong on the edge of the box, but his attempt flies over the bar.

Saints look for a quick response
Ralph Hasenhüttl's side are straight back on the front foot, looking for a second equaliser of the afternoon.
Vydra with a stunner
There's nothing Alex McCarthy can do about that. Matej Vydra controls Jeff Hendrick's deep cross, nips past a challenge and unleashes a strike into the top corner against the run of play.
Matej Vydra (60’) | 1 – 2
Ings breaks the line
Alex McCarthy's long kick went all the way through to Ings at the other end, but after his first touch took him wide, his cross couldn't find Shane Long in the middle.
Almost some joy for Ings
Jannik Vestergaard's long diagonal ball spots the run of Danny Ings, but the striker can't quite take it in his stride as Nick Pope collects.
Patient build-up play ends with Moussa Djenepo playing a neat inside ball to Ryan Bertrand, but his shot on the turn crashes into the side netting.
And play resumes!
We're back under way, with no changes for either side at the break.
HALF TIME: Saints 1-1 Burnley
It's level at the break, but Saints have had all of the play. Ashley Westwood's fortuitous opener gave Burnley the lead, before Danny Ings's 18th of the season restored parity.

A half-chance for Vydra
Some hesitancy at the back allows Matej Vydra a sight of goal, but Jannik Vestergaard stretches to get a toe to his strike, which takes it comfortably back to Alex McCarthy.
Jack Stephens sees a header clatter off the bar, as Saints push to take the lead.
