Point Gained, or Two Lost?!

Southampton has never been a "happy hunting ground" for Newcastle, indeed it has been pretty disastrous. Prior to today we have only ever won five times out of the forty-nine games played on the south coast. One might have thought therefore that to come away with a point was a good result. However, after having taken the lead twice this feels more like two points lost rather than one gained.
