Schneiderlin saves Saints

Morgan Schneiderlin's 80th minute strike was enough to rescue a point for league leaders Southampton.

The home side opened the scoring in the 53rd minute through striker Charlie Austin.

This was Austin's fourth appearance against the Saints - and the former Swindon player scored his fourth goal against the south-coast outfit when he volleyed past Kelvin Davis.

The Saints almost leveled through top scorer Rickie Lambert just three minutes after Austin's goal.

Frazer Richardson continued to surge down the right hand side and deliver a perfect ball into the Burnley box, and Lambert, looking for his seventh league goal had to see his header bounce back of the Burnley bar.

The away side continued to put the Clarets under pressure and almost equalised through Adam Lallana. Danny Fox, who returned at left back, swept in a beautiful cross but Lallana's header missed by inches.

The Championship leaders were finally rewarded in the 80th minute when Schneiderlin poked home his second goal for the Saints to send the travelling fans into jubilation.

Nigel Adkins' men nearly snatched all of the points when Lallana was put through by David Connolly - but the 23-year-old fired his shot straight at Lee Grant in the Burnley goal.

The result is Southampton's first draw of the season and with second place Middlesbrough failing to win at home to Ipswich - the Saints remain top of the Championship table.
