Adkins: Don't give me vote of confidence

Published Add your comment

Nigel Adkins admits he should be favourite to get the sack because of Southampton's precarious position in the Barclays Premier League but has pleaded not to be given "the dreaded vote of confidence".

The Saints continue to occupy bottom spot after two goals from Peter Odemwingie earned West Brom a 2-0 win at the Hawthorns. They have collected only four points out of a possible 30 and conceded 28 goals - the worst defensive record in the top flight.

"I don't think anybody needs to give anyone a vote of confidence because if you do, then we all turn around and say, 'he's got the dreaded vote of confidence'," Adkins said. "We need to win and I believe we can do it. I'm very proud and privileged to be the Southampton manager. I'll stand out and lead from the front as I've always done."
