Trio named in Team of the Year
Rickie Lambert is among three Southampton players named in the PFA npower Championship Team of the Year.
The second tier's top scorer, 30, has fired 27 league goals as Saints engineered an unlikely surge towards a second consecutive promotion.
Goalkeeper Kelvin Davis, 35, who has missed just one league game this season, has kept 17 clean sheets and makes the Championship dream team for the second time in his career.
Influential midfielder Adam Lallana, 23, completes Southampton's contingent after marking his second full season on the south coast with 12 goals in all competitions.
Nigel Adkins' men might have sealed their return to the Barclays Premier League but suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Middlesbrough on Saturday.
They can, however, win promotion to the top flight without kicking a ball on Monday evening if third-placed West Ham fail to beat Leicester.
