Bournemouth 1-1 Southampton: Austin Strikes Again To Earn Southampton A Point

Charlie Austin secured a comeback 1-1 draw for Southampton in an entertaining south coast derby at AFC Bournemouth.

After Southampton's Virgil van Dijk headed wide and Fraser Forster produced a fantastic reaction save to deny Jermain Defoe, AFC Bournemouth took a first-half lead.

Ryan Fraser slotted in from Andrew Surman's pass after Saints defender Wesley Hoedt had been caught in possession.

But Austin, who made his name at the Cherries' non-league neighbours Poole Town, scored from Nathan Redmond's cutback on 61 minutes.

Austin headed narrowly over as Saints pushed for a second, but the point leaves them 11th, two points and three places above their opponents.
