Southampton gaffer George Burley said Saints dominated the match with Preston but failed to take their chances.
He told the Echo: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen a game dominated by the away team so much.
‘We had them on the ropes but didn’t finish them off.
‘All credit to their keeper who made some great saves but we had loads of opportunities, played them off the park and to go in 1-0 down was a body blow and knocked us back.’
