Southampton matchwinner Ricki Lambert feels they now know what is needed to compete in the Premier League.

Lambert edged a crucial clash against Aston Villa with the only goal of the game.

He said: "When we got promoted, we knew we didn't have much Premier League experience in the squad, only a couple who had played Premier League.

"We knew it was going to take us a while to get used to it. Now I feel we are getting used to it and improving every game."
