Good day: Chris Lowe
■ One of Town’s most reliable performers in last season’s promotion success, the German left-back has made the step up from the Championship in impressive fashion. He did make one late mistake that handed Saints a chance, but otherwise he was exemplary with the 15thminute tackle on Steven Davis very much deserving to be filed in the goal-saving category.
Bad day: Nathan Redmond
■ The England international was a threat throughout but he really should have capitalised on at least one of the two gilt-edged opportunities that came his way. The first of those misses was probably the worst, Redmond having just Jonas Lossl to beat after being played clear by Davis only to shoot just past a post.
Key moment: ‘91st minute’
■ Shane Long, a big threat after being brought off the bench, teed up Ryan Bertrand with a great chance but his header was cleared off the line by Town captain Tommy Smith with Lossl beaten. Defeat would have been harsh on the hosts but, without Smith, the Saints would have been returning south with all three points.
Ref watch: Stuart Attwell
■ Incensed James Ward-Prowse by turning down his appeal for a penalty following a clash with Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jorgensen but the official had a good game. Tried to keep the play flowing and was also keen to have a quiet word with players who transgressed rather than getting out his cards. Attwell also refused to fall for the theatrics of Redmond and Oriol Romeu when the pair rolled around following perfectly legal tackles.
■ A good, solid point for Huddersfield, who are still finding their feet among the elite. Southampton were much tougher opponents than either Palace or Newcastle but Huddersfield matched them tackle for tackle and shot for shot. Saints began and ended proceedings on top but the Terriers bossed in between those two spells and a draw was a fair result.
