SLIDESHOW: Southampton v Sunderland in pictures

Waiting for Video...
 

JOSE Fonte denied Sunderland a first win of the season with a last-gasp header that earned Southampton a hard-earned point.

It had looked like an early goal from the diminutive Emanuele Giaccherini would see Paolo Di Canio’s men take three points back to the North East yesterday.

The smallest player of the pitch at just 5ft 5in, he was unmarked when he headed home a Sebastian Larsson corner in just the third minute.

Poor finishing, fine goalkeeping from Kieren Westwood and plain old bad luck looked set to deny Saints, only for centre-back Fonte to head home two minutes from time.

Here’s a slideshow of pictures which tell the story of the match.
