MATT Le Tissier believes Saints possess the mental strength needed to secure promotion to the Premier League this season.

Nigel Adkins’ men further improved their chances of reaching the top flight by demolishing Derby 4-0 at St Mary’s on Saturday to move back to the head of the Championship.

Nearest rivals West Ham can overhaul them again tonight, but even then Saints would still be left in a most enviable position.

“I’m positive about everything and keeping everything crossed that we go and finish the job off.”
