Southampton’s first pre-season match was also against second-tier opposition, with Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s charges playing out a 1-1 draw against Fulham behind closed doors on Saturday.
Shane Long opened the scoring from close range after being teed up by Mohammed Salisu, but they could not see out the win as Neeskens Kebano converted a penalty for the Cottagers.
Hasenhuttl used his now-trademark 4-2-2-2 formation and fielded effectively a different side in each half, with Salisu the only starter to feature in the second period.
The Saints now have three more friendlies, against Cardiff, Swansea City and Athletic Bilbao, before travelling to Everton on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.
Cardiff’s Championship campaign begins a week earlier, meaning that the Welsh side are at a slightly more advanced stage in their preparations than their opponents.
