PREMIER LEAGUE: Jose Fonte nets twice as Southampton draw with Fulham

Jose Fonte struck twice for Southampton to earn in a point in a four goal thriller against Fulham at St Mary's.

Jose Fonte struck twice for Southampton to earn in a point in a four goal thriller against Fulham at St Mary's.

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

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 scored an own goal in Southampton's 6-1 humbling at Arsenal and did so again when he directed home a speculative John Arne Riise drive in the second half.

Hooiveld, who came on eight minutes into the clash after Frazer Richardson suffered a thigh injury, 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.
