The south-coast derby ended 1-1 with the Cherries leading at half-time through a Ryan Fraser objective just for Austin to equalise in the 2nd half.
I believe it was a reasonable outcome, it was a truly tight video game, both groups wished to win the video game.
An even video game saw the house side take the lead prior to the period, Fraser shooting past Fraser Forster in the Saints objective.
Southampton were more of a risk in the 2nd duration, Nathan Redmond coming on in location of James Ward-Prowse and he set up Austin for the leveller simply after the hour mark.
Austin scored two times versus Everton last month and might have scored a winner versus Bournemouth, his header going broad 10 minutes from time.
He and his group had to settle for a point and his supervisor Mauricio Pellegrino stated a draw was the best outcome.
He informed Sky Sports after the video game: “I believe it was a reasonable outcome, it was an actually tight video game, both groups wished to win the video game. It was a good derby. Undoubtedly at the end of the very first half they were a bit much better than us after scoring however our response was actually favorable and for me it was a great video game.”
The house side were left aggrieved by a charge choice breaking them, Adam Smith adjudged to have actually dived after a difficulty by Sofiane Boufal in the very first half.
It was a choice that outraged Cherries manager Eddie Howe who stated: “It was a clear charge. I felt it at the time. I might not think exactly what the referee did and to see it once again makes you feel even worse, it’s one of the most stonewall charges you will see all season.”
Southampton remain 11th in the Premier League table following the outcome and are in action once again next Sunday when they are at the home of Arsenal.
