Saints Fightback For A Point
St Mary's Stadium
Southampton's Premier League season continued with a draw against Aston Villa at the St Mary's Stadium on Saturday.
They've gone 14-matches without a win, however Villa almost had one against the Saints when Joleon Lescott gave the visitors the lead on the stroke of half time as finished from a corner.
Oriol Romeu, which also came from a corner, made sure Southampton shared the points with the former Chelsea man scoring with a little over 15-minutes left.
Dusan Tadic, Graziano Pelle and Jose Fonte all had great chances for the Saints ahead of the Aston Villa opening but the second half equaliser means Remi Garde remains without a win in four-matches as Villa boss and his side stranded at the foot of the Premier League table!

Looking at these results (so far) the stand out ones have to be the wins for Stoke, Bournemouth and Newcastle.
Man City losing at Stoke, with the Potters running out two-nil winners was topped, even though they've been 'struggling' this season as it, by Bournemouth becoming the latest side to win at Stamford Bridge when the Cherries scored late on to beat Chelsea one-nil!
It wasn't one that could top the Bournemouth one, however a much needed Newcastle win as the Toon saw off Liverpool two-nil at St James' Park eased some pressure on Steve McClaren who, apparently, had (before this) only two-matches save his job....
Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
