SAINTS boss Nigel Adkins hailed his side’s character following their second-half destruction of Aston Villa.
Adkins saw his side overcome a 1-0 half-time deficit by putting four past Villa during 45 thrilling minutes at St Mary’s.
He said: “We showed some good character in the second half after going 1-0 down.
“It was a poor goal to concede, let’s face it.
“We played some good football in the first half even if some passes went astray.
“We put on a really good performance, we controlled the ball for long spells and excited our supporters, who were outstanding.
“They’ve been unbelievable since I’ve been here and I wouldn’t expect them to turn as they know how hard we all work.
“We want to be in the upper echelons of the Premier League .
“We’re together as one and we showed that.”
