Ormerod brace seals points for Saints


Southampton 3 Charlton 2

A late strike by Brett Ormerod earned Southampton a 3-2 premier league win over Charlton Athletic on Sunday after his team had squandered a two-goal lead.

Southampton led 2-0 at the break after Swedish midfielder Michael Svensson gave them a sixth minute lead and Ormerod got his first of the day in first-half injury time.

Two fantastic goals from midfielder Scott Parker, who will have impressed watching England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, brought Charlton level before Ormerod stole victory four minutes from time.

Charlton stay sixth in the table but victory catapulted Southampton from 13th to eighth place.
