Pic Special: Newcastle 1 Southampton 1

Yoan Gouffran scored his sixth goal of the season but Newcastle were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at home against Southampton in the Barclays Premier League.

The French forward tapped home just before the half-hour mark to put the Magpies ahead, after seizing upon a Jos Hooiveled mistake, but Southampton levelled through Jay Rodriguez midway through thesecond period.

Despite not dominating possession, United had the lion's share of the chances, with full-backs Mathieu Debuchy and Davide Santon both threatening from distance, while Loic Remy had two golden opportunities - one in each half - but .was unable to convert either.

The point means Alan Pardew's side have only lost one of their last seven games.
