Saints fans have given Nigel Adkins an overwhelming vote of confidence.

More than 5,000 votes have been cast by fans in a massive poll asking whether the under-fire manager still has their support and a landslide 78 per cent have backed him.

The vast majority voted that he did have their support as he is working in very difficult circumstances, while only 22 per cent felt that Saints’ current situation was ‘all his fault’.

The public support will be a huge boost to Adkins with the club declining the chance to publicly back him themselves this week.
