Nigel Adkins was trying to take the positives out of his side’s 1-1 draw with Norwich.

Saints made it four games unbeaten in the top flight with the St Mary’s draw.

However, it could have been even better.

Rickie Lambert gave Saints the lead on 32 minutes only for a horrible error from Paulo Gazzaniga who allowed Robert Snodgrass’s free kick to squirm into the net just before half time.

“We got another point on the board,” reflected Adkins.

“That’s eight points in four games which is good.

“Of course you want to win your home games and in the first half I believed we were going to go on and win.

“Unfortunately that wasn’t the case but we haven’t lost it and it’s another point on the board so let’s be positive about that.”

Adkins was less enthusiastic about Gazzaniga’s mistake.

“He’s got to keep the ball out of the back of the net,” said Adkins.
