Southampton made the trip to Bournemouth on Saturday as Premier League action returned following the October international break and we took a much-needed point from the game and kept a clean sheet.

With manager Mark Hughes pulling a surprise in defence and bringing in Jack Stephens to partner Wesley Hoedt, it was an incredibly tight game in reality. The hosts edged possession on the day and although they had more efforts overall at our net, they managed to only get two on target and we mustered four at their keeper.

Welshman Hughes was adamant at the full-time whistle that we had deserved more from the game given the performance.

It’s understandable as to why he claimed that given the run of form that Bournemouth have been on in comparison to ourselves, but his words didn’t wash with plenty of fans on social media who took the time to give their reactions to his words above.

It’ll take more than a point to bring some fans back now sadly, but maybe it’s a start – now we have to prove it wasn’t the proverbial one off and that we can kick on further.
