“Jussi made a couple of great saves and at the end of the day, we were happy with a point,” Noble told the official site. “We haven’t been scoring goals lately, but we have been keeping clean sheets and it was good to come away with a point against a good side in Southampton.
“When you’re not scoring goals you need your goalkeeper to be on it, and on Sunday he was. He made a few great saves for us, and then we’ve had a chance late on for Ginge to win it.
“In training the big man normally sticks those away, but he’s shanked that one over the bar, so he was gutted in the changing room after, but overall we were happy with the point.
“We were poor a couple of weeks ago against Stoke and that’s unlike us. We played well against Newcastle and had chances to win the game, we played well against Cardiff and did okay again at Southampton.
“Sometimes playing away from home you need that little bit of luck. Rickie Lambert hit the post with a header, and they might have won it, but we stuck in, Jussi did great and we came away a point.”
