  • "The total change of tactics today almost...very almost paid off.
    Some fans are very quick to criticise, yet offer no praise where praise is deserved.
    Most of us would have taken this point this morning, and although I'm disappointed with losing a 3-1 lead, I would offer credit to Stoke for the way they set about earning their point and keeping their amazing home record intact.
    Stoke had seized the game way before NA made his substitutions and I felt JP was tiring and becoming less effective. Shaw's substitution at a late stage of a game is almost a given.
    Honestly thought we'd hold out at 3-2 but the equalizer was unstoppable.
    Sure, we need to strengthen...but I really think there are at least three weaker teams in the PL right now. I think we'll be ok on today's showing."

Adkins hails "fantastic point"

First published in Sport

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.”
