    I said we had to bolster the defence/defenders & again was hammered for saying it.
    Now this shows we do need a decent goalie who can catch a ball who comes out to take crosses & who can orchestrate our new defence into an effective unit.
    But now comes the dodgy bit! Why did we sit back on a 2 goal lead against 10 men?
    Why not pin them in their area by attacking them?
    Surely by now Adkins knows the defence isn't strong enough( capable) of sitting back & soaking up constant pressure?
    If he doesn't then maybe he isn't the man to lead us any more?
    Can't wait to see if & who he buys in the Transfer window?"

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.”
