    • 87' Lambert sees a free-kick saved by Price low down.
    • 83' Zaha comes on for Parr.

    • 64' Williams slips in Easter, but he scoops his shot wide of the left-hand post.
    • 62' Great play by Harding. He whips in a great cross but Forte can't quite get a solid connection on it and it goes out for a throw.
    • 60' Butterfield cross is cut out by Ramage.
    • 56' Not for the first time this evening, Easter is caught offside.
    • 55' Easter bursts forward and shoots just over the bar. Finally something to write about!
    • 51' Ward-Prowse tries an ambitious throughball but it runs through to Price.
    • 46' No changes at the break by either team and we're under way.
    • 45+1' Ambrose's cross is cleared and that's half-time. Not the most exciting of games so far. Saints started well but it's died down since then.

    • 28' Martin's clearance is charged down by Easter.
    • 25' Electric pace there by Forte to make space for the shot.

    • 20' Now Forte is spotted by the assistant referee and is flagged offside.
    • 18' Reeves is caught offside as he tries to latch onto a Forte pass.
    • 16' Easter is flagged offside.
    • 15' Robust challenge by Clyne on Reeves in the penalty area. Nothing doing says the referee.
    • 13' McCarthy does well to hold off Forte and Palace bring the ball away.
    • 11' Reeves' ball fizzes across the six-yard box but no-one is there to get a touch on it. Good play by Reeves.
    • 10' The corner comes to nothing.
    • 10' Ramage volleys a Harding cross inches past his own post. So nearly an own goal, Ramage didn't really know where the ball was.
    • 6' Price makes a smart save low to his left from Reeves.
    • 4' Clyne smashes a shot high and wide after some sloppy Southampton defending.
    • 3' It has been a quiet start so far.
    • 1' We're off!
    • 19:43 Out come the two teams. Glad All Over is blaring out.
    • 19:25 The referee is Mark Haywood (W Yorkshire).
    • 19:24 Ward-Prowse makes his full debut, while youngsters Moore, Dean and goalkeeper Dovey are amongst the substitutes.
    • 19:23 Southampton make 10 changes to the side that drew at Reading. Cork is the only man to stay in the XI. He starts at centre-back.
    • 19:21 So that's eight changes for Palace from Saturday's 1-0 win at Ipswich Town. The feeling is they'll line-up in a 4-4-1-1 formation with Ambrose just behind a lone striker.
    • 19:20 Southampton subs: Richardson, Lambert, Barnard, De Prado, Moore, Dovey, Dean.
    • 19:19 Southampton: Bialkowski, Harding, Schneiderlin, Cork, Butterfield, Martin, Forte, Holmes, Reeves, Ward-Prowse, De Ridder.
    • 19:16 Palace subs: Speroni, Gardner, Iversen, Jedinak, Zaha, Pedroza, Dorman.
    • 19:16 Palace: Price, Clyne, Parr, McCarthy, Ambrose, Dikgacoi, Easter, Williams, Moxey, O'Keefe, Ramage.
    • 19:14 The teamsheets are in...
    • 18:46 A win for Palace, who have kept three consecutive clean sheets, would take them into the quarter-finals for the first time since the 2003/04 season.
    • 18:46 These clubs have met 50 times before, with Southampton winning on 31 occasions and Palace 23.
    • 18:46 This, however, is their first appearance in the fourth round of this competition for seven years.
    • 18:46 Southampton, though, come into the game top of the Championship and looking for back-to-back promotions.
    • 18:45 They have won 16 of the last 18 League Cup matches at Selhurst Park and have lost only two of 29 - a run that stretches back to October 1995.
    • 18:45 Palace's home form has been excellent under manager Dougie Freedman and has also been impressive in this competition in recent years.
