Smallbone scored gave his side the lead on seven minutes with a penalty won by Tyreke Johnson.

Captain O'Connor sealed the win with a stunning 30-yard free-kick in the second half. 

In the final Southampton will face Newcastle United, who beat Reading on penalties in the other semi-final on Friday. 

The south-coast side get the advantage of playing at their home ground because they finished higher in the regular season.
