Legge: Late goal hero

Big defender Leon Legge earned Brentford a deserved point in a thrilling 1-1 home draw with Southampton.

The centre-back, who was playing non-league football last season, powered home a header six minutes from time.

The visitors had taken the lead after just five minutes when Lloyd James lashed home an unstoppable drive into the roof of the net from the edge of the area.

Adam Lallana hit the bar for Saints and Michail Antonio saw a snap shot turned onto the post by Bees keeper Wojciech Szczesny.

But it was his opposite number Kelvin Davis who salvaged a point for Alan Pardew's side when he saved Kevin O'Connor's 70th-minute penalty after a handball in the box.
