With Brighton and Hove Albion making the trip to St Mary’s Stadium on Monday evening for the latest Premier League clash, the day went badly to begin with and by the 65th minute we were 2-0 down with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scoring a long-range cracker (you have to quietly applaud it) and Danny Ings finding the net from the penalty spot.

Once it went to 2-0 though, whether Southampton stepped off or Brighton stepped up with nothing to lose, something changed and the final 25 minutes was definitely something to behold.
Shane Duffy added his second top-flight goal of the campaign to his name to renew hope and the ever-reliable Glenn Murray made it four goals in five games with his stoppage-time penalty to secure a point.
Murray took to social media following the game to thank the fans for their support and it went over incredibly well.
Loved the enormous smile on your face when you scored. Certainly not reserved at all.

Murray is what Murray does and despite his advancing age, he has lost nothing in front of the net and he continues to prove he’s just as vital to us now as he was in his first spell.
Long may it continue!
