Nathan Dyer came off the bench to rescue a point for Swansea City and heap more misery on his former club Southampton.

Dyer was introduced mid way through the second half after the Saints had taken a deserved lead in their Premier League clash yesterday.

The winger, who played for Southampton from the age of 8, capitalized on a defensive error to race through and score the equaliser ensuring the Swans left St Mary's with a 1-1 draw.

I felt we put in a few good performances in the last couple of games and it is always going to be hard going away to a team like Southampton that need the win and we were happy to come away with a draw.

Southampton will always be in my heart. It was where I was from when I was eight years old.

It is where I learned my trade, I've always had respect for Southampton and I hope they turn it around.

I wanted to show my appreciation [in my celebration]. I was at the club for a long time and I just wanted to keep it to a minimum.

– Nathan Dyer, Swansea City
