  • "Saints played the top sides at the beginning of the season and gave them a game, but sadly got few points. We are now playing the middle and bottom sides and are getting points off most of them: Newcastle, Swansea, Fulham, Stoke (a very good side), QPR, and Reading. Disappointing results against Sunderland and WHU (both of whom will get sucked downwards). In our first season back in the PL with a lot of players from our Championship/League 1 years, we are improving. We must convert these draws into wins, but we are only 1pointbehind two teams above us. We are better than Aston Villa and play them soon. Hardly time to give up all hope."

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.”
