Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino has described his side's 1-1 draw at Burnley in the Premier League as "almost the same as a win".
"It's one point, obviously we play another important game next, but the draw is almost the same as a win today," BBC Sport quotes Pellegrino as saying.
"At the end, the game was difficult, because Burnley don't concede too many. The goal good gave us a good feeling, because there wasn't too many chances. We competed at the start of second half but maybe they were stronger than us in some respects."
The result leaves the Saints in 16th place in the table, outside of the dropzone on goal difference.
