Sunderland 1-1 Southampton – Premier League – 12th May 2013
A hard-fought draw at the Stadium of Light on Sunday saw Southampton rubber-stamp their place in next season’s Premier League while Sunderland should survive should Wigan fail to win at Arsenal on Tuesday evening.
Both goals came int he second period, courtesy of Phil Bardsley on 68 minutes and then sub Jason Puncheon, eight minutes later.
The Saints were arguably the better of the two sides on the day but the draw should see both teams facing off once again next season in the top tier.
