90+5’

FULL TIME: Southampton 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

It's going to be penalties at St Mary's.

90+1’

Walcott appeal turned down

Potentially a big moment here. It looks like Theo Walcott may have been played through, only to be brought down just outside the area by last-man Reece James. Referee John Brooks, however, says there was no foul, much to the frustration of Walcott and the Saints bench.

90’

Five minutes of added time

87’

Off the bar!

So, so close! James Ward-Prowse cleverly cuts back a free kick on the right side, into the path of Stuart Armstrong on the edge of the box. He strikes a ferocious effort that beats David Stockdale but hits the underside of the bar. Duje Ćaleta-Car has a chance to convert the rebound, but it bounces back to him at close range so quickly that his instinctive header goes wide.

85’

Sheffield Wednesday substitution: Michael Smith replaces Fisayo Dele-Bashiru

77’

Perraud shoots over

Fresh from his goal at the weekend, Romain Perraud goes looking for another, working the ball onto his left foot 25 yards out, but his well-struck effort is a couple of yards over.

76’

Southampton substitution: Stuart Armstrong replaces Sékou Mara

76’

Walcott fires wide

Theo Walcott works space just inside the left of the area, but his right-footed effort across goal flies a couple of yards wide.

75’

Sheffield Wednesday substitution: Reece James replaces Josh Windass

75’

Sheffield Wednesday substitution: Will Vaulks replaces Tyreeq Bakinson

70’

Southampton substitution: Mohamed Elyounoussi replaces Samuel Edozie

63’

Walcott denied off the line... twice!

Incredible! Theo Walcott pounces on a misplaced pass inside the Wednesday area from keeper David Stockdale, but his shot towards goal is cleared inside the six-yard box by the back-tracking Michael Ihiekwe. The ball comes back to Walcott, who shifts it onto his left foot, only for his low shot to again be cleared off the line by the same defender.

59’

Southampton substitution: Ainsley Maitland-Niles replaces Moussa Djenepo

59’

Southampton substitution: Theo Walcott replaces Joe Aribo

57’

Armstrong goes close

Much better from Saints to start the second half, and they get another sight of goal as a loose ball drops to Adam Armstrong on the right side of the area. He chests it down well, but sends his shot into the side netting.

51’

Change of shape for Saints in second half

With Romain Perraud's introduction, Southampton are now playing with a back four, with Moussa Djenepo on the opposite side.

47’

Armstrong gets a sight of goal

Saints work a short corner to Adam Armstrong on the edge of the area, to the left of centre. He sets himself to try to curl one into the far corner, but sends it over.

45’

Second half under way

We're up and running again at St Mary's!

HT

Southampton substitution: Romain Perraud replaces Mohammed Salisu

HALF TIME: Southampton 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

James Ward-Prowse's penalty in added time cancels out Josh Windass's opener midway through the half.

GOALSCORER 8 James Ward-Prowse

Ward-Prowse levels

James Ward-Prowse slams the penalty down the middle to make it 1-1 moments before half-time.

45+1’

GOOOAL!!!

James Ward-Prowse (45+1’) | 1 1

45+1’

Penalty to Saints!

Moussa Djenepo drives into the box and is tripped, and the referee points to the spot!

37’

Bakinson off target from long range

A pretty speculative effort from Tyreeq Bakinson, who shoots from a long way out, and it's well off target.

32’

Windass threatens again

Alex McCarthy called into action again, this time denying Josh Windass after a quick pass was played to him in the area.

30’

Mara sees shot from distance saved

A nice passage of play from Saints sees them work the ball into Sékou Mara 25 yards out. He turns and sends a low shot towards goal, but it's a bit too central and David Stockdale saves well.

29’

Yellow Card for Callum Paterson (Sheffield Wednesday)

28’

Aribo close to an equaliser

James Ward-Prowse swings a free-kick in from the left side, and Joe Aribo wins the header at the near post, but his flicked effort is well turned away by Wednesday keeper David Stockdale.

Windass opens the scoring

Wednesday have looked the more likely to score, and they do make the breakthrough here, as Windass gets free on the right side of the area and smashes a shot past Alex McCarthy.

24’

GOAL

Josh Windass (24’) | 0 1

22’

Bannan tries his luck from distance

The Wednesday captain tries an audacious effort, striking a bouncing ball from 35-plus yards out, but, although it's well struck, it slices a few yards wide.

17’

Bannan threatens for visitors

Another opportunity for Wednesday, this time as the ball falls to captain Barry Bannan just inside the area, but Alex McCarthy makes a good save from his left-footed strike.

9’

Windass goes close for Wednesday

Josh Windass gets onto a ball forward and strikes a low shot from 18 yards goalwards, with Alex McCarthy managing to push it wide.
