Unity the key for Adkins

Published Add your comment

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins highlighted togetherness as the catalyst to his side overcoming their miserable start to life back in the Premier League with a 4-1 defeat of Aston Villa.

Saints came into the match rooted to the bottom of the standings after four successive defeats and looked on course for another loss when Darren Bent gave Villa a first-half lead, but fired in four goals to notch the victory.

Adkins said: "We want to pass the football and everyone is well aware of that. We've done it on many, many occasions. I think the supporters understand that as well and there was a massive togetherness all the way through the stadium together."
