An early second half equaliser by Andy Cole, cancelled out Southampton’s fifth minute goal in the first half to give Blackburn a share of the points this afternoon.

In a first half best forgotten if you were a Blackburn supporters, Southampton took the lead as early as the fifth minute when Beattie set up Kevin Phillips, who made no mistake from close range in front of the Blackburn End.

Souness made wholesale changes at half time, shuffling the formation and bringing on Yorke and Jansen for Gallagher and Douglas.

Within ten minutes of the restart Rovers had equalised when Cole blasted home past the helpless Niemi in the Southampton goal mouth.
