James Ward-Prowse secured a late draw against Newcastle on the weekend in the Premier League. Newcastle was on the verge of one of the shocking football results of the weekend before the last gasp equalizer. Southampton was wasteful in front of the goal with the penalty being their 22nd shot of the game. Callum Wilson scored the opener when he headed in from close range before Mohamed Elyounoussi scored the equalizer. Allan Saint-Maximin then scored what looked to be the winner in the 90th minute.

Managers Reaction

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce: “The fans are entitled to their opinion [about the first-half performance]. I find the whole thing disappointing as anyone would but the first half wasn’t good enough. I accept that. In the second half, we played with more intensity, intent and passed the ball better. It was a disappointing afternoon all around.”

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl: “In the past, we’ve played good games there and never taken something. It was always running against us. In this game, we deserved at least a point. We have not been able to win today but when you have to take a late point you must take it.”
