Southampton   0 - 0   Notts County

Southampton 0-0 Notts County

Southampton 0-0 Notts County

Southampton's title charge slowed after they were held to a goalless draw by Notts County.

The home side nearly took the lead when Jason Puncheon crossed for Rahdi Jaidi, who headed over from six yards.

Saints youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picked the ball up in his own half and ran past several defenders before his chipped effort landed wide.

Craig Westcarr had the best chance for County, but he curled his shot wide and both sides had to settle for a point.


Southampton manager Nigel Adkins on Saints youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain:
There's no auction involved, we aren't selling anybody. We especially aren't going to be in a situation where we are selling someone to the highest bidder - it's not what we are after.

"Alex is our player, he's come through our system - we're trying nurture him, we'll love him and try and help him develop.

"If a situation arose further down the line and it might benefit Alex then it's got to be for his career. We'll look at the right decision for the right football club. But he's a Southampton player."

Notts County manager Paul Ince told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"You can't be greedy but I always like to win games coming here and, to be fair, it could easily have been three points.

"I think it would have been thoroughly deserved.

"The way we defended - you know when you come to a place like this, they've got a fantastic team, a massive budget and some quality players - and we defended ever so well, the whole team from front to back."
