Southampton 1-1 Huddersfield

Charlie Austin scored his fifth goal in as many starts of the for Saints but Mauricio Pellegrino's side failed to win again as Laurent Depoitre netted a second half equaliser for Huddersfield.

Reaction:

Mauricio Pellegrino: "We were really close to scoring the second goal, but then we conceded and we have to try to improve this type of goal.

"Obviously we are disappointed because I think we had to win this game and now we are in the middle of the season, but still we have got a lot of possibility to bounce back from this situation and to change our results and convert this start into more points and more goals.

"Football is efficiency. You need to score goals, and in this type of game you have to try to score the second earlier and we have had a couple of chances, but I would repeat that our accuracy wasn't the best.

"It's a pity because I think we did in some moments react well. In some other moments it was a little bit flat because there were a lot of challenges and the ball was in the air a lot. It was a difficult game."

Jack Stephens: “Dominating the game for so long and creating the chances we did, it’s definitely two points dropped, which is really frustrating for us.

“We knew what they were going to come and do – they were going to put pressure on us and try to stop us playing, so we had to resist that and then start to play our own game.

“I thought we did that perfectly, especially for the first 45 – even the first hour.

“We had one or two chances to get that second goal, but when it doesn’t come we’ve got to make sure we keep it tight at the back.

“We’ve let it slip again – we’ve given them an opportunity and they’ve taken it.”
