Saints Loan Watch: Monday, October 27

Another 8-0 drubbing? Well, sort of.

Bournemouth hit eight past managerless Birmingham

After Southampton's 8-0 win over Sunderland, another Saints player got to relive the experience last weekend. Goalkeeper Artur Boruc helped Bournemouth to a clean sheet, but most of the action happened on the other end.

Bournemouth ran riot and scored eight goals, with five of them coming in the second-half to add further misery for Birmingham, who have just sacked boss Lee Clark.

This was Boruc's second clean sheet in the week (and three in a row) after Bournemouth defeated Reading 3-0 last Tuesday.

The Cherries now sat in fourth place with 24 points, while Birmingham plummeted to 23rd with 11 points in The Championship.

Hooiveld on the bench as Norwich struggles

Norwich City is winless in their last five matches, with back-to-back draws against Leeds United (1-1) and Sheffield Wednesday (0-0). Saints' Dutch defender, Jos Hooiveld returned from his injury but only made the bench against Wednesday and stayed there throughout the game.

Norwich dropped to sixth on the table, and will play Bolton Wanderers on Friday.

Winless week for Swindon Town

Jordan Turnbull and Jack Stephens featured twice for Swindon Town but could only earned their side a point from a possible six.

Both defenders played the whole game against Rochdale last Tuesday, but a last minute goal by Bastien Hery handed Swindon only their second loss of the season.

The Saints' duo featured again for Swindon in the 2-2 draw against visiting Colchester, and competed a full 90 minutes respectively. Michael Smith scored a brace for the home team.

Swindon dropped to ninth on the table, but they have only played 13 games compared to several sides above them that has played 14 or 15 games.

Last minute goal in Edinburgh Derby

Jake Sinclair was not in Hibernian's squad as they faced Hearts in the Edinburgh Derby. Hibs looked like they were good for three points until this happened:

Hibernian remained fourth in The Scottish Championship, while Hearts maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

Hull and Liverpool played to a stalemate

Gaston Ramirez came on as a 71st minute substitute but could not change the score as Hull City held Liverpool to a goalless draw in Anfield. Hull now sits in ninth place with 11 points after their fifth draw of the season.
