Southampton's under-fire manager Nigel Adkins was denied a much-need victory by Swansea as another former academy graduate returned to haunt their former club in a 1-1 draw.

Two weeks ago Gareth Bale helped Tottenham to a 2-1 victory at St Mary's, and this afternoon Nathan Dyer came off the bench to deny the south coast club all three points. The hosts dominated the first half, and continued well after the break to take a deserved lead through Morgan Schneiderlin.

But Saints' defence proved their undoing as Maya Yoshida failed to control a pass from goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, with Dyer nipping in to collect the ball and fire home to secure a point for the Welsh side.
