Under-fire Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has the full support of the Saints squad, according to their captain Adam Lallana.

Adkins' future has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks as the club struggles to adapt to life in the Barclays Premier League after two successive promotions. The Saints travel to West Brom on Monday night still searching for their first Barclays Premier League win of the season.

Lallana said: "Whatever team is in the bottom three their manager will be under pressure, or at least the media will think that. There has been speculation since the start of the season about who was going to be the manager and ifs and buts, as a player you just get on with it and do as best as you can, not just for yourself and the team but for the manager as well."
