Adkins to savour Saints promotion

Published Add your comment

Nigel Adkins admitted he would enjoy a glass of bubbly after guiding his Southampton side to "something special" - promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

The Saints boss praised the character and professionalism of his players over the course of the entire campaign after goals from Billy Sharp, Jose Fonte, Jos Hooiveld and Adam Lallana saw off lowly Coventry 4-0 and propelled the south coast club to back-to-back promotions.

"We've put a lot of hard work in and a lot of hours but we've achieved something special this season," he said. "We achieved something special last season and I suppose it's that drive to do well. Everyone works so hard at this football club and it's great to see the smiles and delight on the supporters' faces."
