The south coast derby between Bournemouth and Southampton was always going to be a feisty and competitive affair, fans or no fans.
As the FA Cup tie eased towards half time, neither side had made a breakthrough but both had set their stalls out earlier in the half and the match was absorbing to watch.
It took a moment of supreme individual skill to open the scoring, Nathan Redmond receiving a pass midway inside the Bournemouth half, motoring away from the covering defenders before playing an inch-perfect pass to Moussa Djenepo to coolly slot home.
That’s a lovely goal from Southampton ?
