    Frankly we can hold our heads high after that. A few errors that need work on the training pitch, but we went there and took the game to Stoke.
    Got away with at least one stone cold hand ball - frankly with some of the decisions that have gone against us I'll take that.

    The equaliser from Stoke - Well they call them wonder goals for a reason.
    He's just hammered it goalwards and its gone in - how many times have you seen a player do that and the ball has ended up waking up grandad in the back row? It's a bit of a lucky goal - he's just smacked it as hard as he can at the goal, it could have gone anywhere, just unfortunate for us it went in.
    Well thats done for 2012.
    I'm looking forward to a great 2013 for Saints.

    bump this to the end as it is the best post
    And don't forget Stoke's generosity in poor defending allowing Rodriguez a tap in and them scoring a goal for us! Without those those two gifts it would have been a defeat!!!! I don't see other clubs being as generous."

Adkins hails "fantastic point"

Nigel Adkins at Stoke today.

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.”
