Premier League! Striker Charlie Austin Score As Southampton Draw 1-1 Against Bournemouth

Charlie Austin’s seventh goal in his last 10 Premier League starts rescued a point for Southampton, as they came from behind to draw 1-1 with Bournemouth.

Austin’s return to the starting line-up has provided significant dividends for Mauricio Pellegrino, with

Sunday’s strike his third goal in as many games.

Southampton posed more of an early threat but Bournemouth were gifted the game’s opening goal as

Wesley Hoedt was caught in possession – Ryan Fraser the eventual benefactor as he swept home his first

league goal since January.

It was not enough to secure a much-needed home win for Eddie Howe’s side, though, as Southampton came

roaring back after the break.

Austin was the man to eventually find a way through, his low strike beating the outstretched hand of Asmir

Begovic to continue his fine form in front of goal.

Splitting the two south coast clubs proved impossible in the final 30 minutes, Austin twice going close, but

the draw leaving both to settle for a point that sees them climb one place apiece in the table.
