Adkins and Hughton united in frustration

Published Add your comment

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins and Norwich counterpart Chris Hughton both felt aggrieved by the manner in which their teams conceded in Mark Clattenburg's return to frontline refereeing on Wednesday night.

Clattenburg received a warm reception at St Mary's, although that soon petered out as the game began to heat up. Despite handling in the build-up, Rickie Lambert broke the deadlock, while Saints boss Adkins felt the challenge in the build-up to Robert Snodgrass' leveller should not have been a free-kick.

"The first half we were on the front foot and there was a verve about us," the Saints boss said after the 1-1 draw. "We scored a good goal through Rickie Lambert and could have scored one or two others. Unfortunately, the game has changed for us bang on half-time with the goal we have conceded."
