Jose Fonte's last-gasp header secured Southampton a 2-2 draw and saved defensive partner Jos Hooiveld's blushes against Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

The Portuguese centre-back nodded home a 90th-minute leveller in a game in which he had broken the deadlock after just four minutes.

Hooiveld directed home a speculative John Arne Riise drive in the second half and then saw Kieran Richardson's close-range strike brush off him on its way in two minutes from time, although the goal was credited to the Fulham man. However, Fonte saved the Dutchman and his side late on to earn Southampton a fourth point of the campaign.
