Asmir Begovic says that he has sympathy for Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc after scoring a freak goal against him.

Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has expressed his sympathy for Artur Boruc after scoring past the Pole during his side's 1-1 draw with Southampton.

The Bosnian keeper beat his Saints counterpart with a wind-assisted punt in the first minute and admits that he did not feel like celebrating afterwards.

"It's a cool feeling but it is a fortunate incident. I feel bad for Artur Boruc when that happens but it's a good point for us," BBC Sport quotes him as saying.

"Hopefully we can keep the confidence going. It does not make a goalkeeper look good and after it I did not want to celebrate against him. Hopefully I can get a couple more.

"We are at home and want to get points. We had to graft one out in the end with the conditions. It's the worst conditions you can play in. The wet you can deal with but the wind makes it difficult. You don't know where the ball is going to go."

Jay Rodriguez netted Southampton's equaliser minutes before half time.
