  • "On the way back. Cracking point, proud of the lads. We took the game to them and bossed the first half, physically as well. Thought the team selection strange but it was genius. Gully played well but missed the chance to seal it. Towards the end we were under the cosh and Nige stiffened it up but a wonder strike levelled it. Shame we didn't get all three but make no mistake that was a good performance."

Adkins hails "fantastic point"

Daily Echo: Nigel Adkins at Stoke today. Nigel Adkins at Stoke today.

Nigel Adkins hailed Saints’ draw at Stoke as “a fantastic point.”

The boss was delighted with a 3-3 draw at the Britannia Stadium despite seeing his side lose a 3-1 lead against ten men.

He said: “It’s a fantastic point away from home.

“You look at Stoke and the Britannia Stadium and they had only conceded three goals at home this season and we’ve scored three and could have scored more.

“It’s always a difficult place to come to, our supporters were great and first half it was only us you could hear because our game management was spot on.

“We came away from home and changed a few of the players around because we knew we’d have to deal with an aerial bombardment that would probably come and the players have been top drawer. We scored some really good goals.”
