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.”
