May 5 (Reuters)- Southampton moved out of the Premier League relegation places with a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Saturday but were denied victory by an equaliser in the fifth minute of added time.

Substitute Nathan Redmond headed their goal from Cedric’s cross 11 minutes after coming on at halftime.

Southampton defender Maya Yoshida was sent off in the 85th and deep into added time Tom Davies equalised with a shot that took a heavy deflection.

The Saints now have 33 points, ahead of Swansea City, whom they visit on Tuesday, on goal difference.

Everton are comfortable in eighth place but fans distributed leaflets protesting about what they called “the awful football we’ve endured for a number of years”. (Reporting by Steve Tongue; Editing by Clare Fallon)
