Adkins hails Saints 'maturity'

Published Add your comment

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins believes a "growing maturity" among his players is responsible for their upturn in fortunes in the Barclays Premier League.

Saints gained a vital 1-0 win at fellow strugglers Aston Villa, albeit through a fortuitous penalty when replays showed no contact was made on Jay Rodriguez before he went to ground.

"That is 11 games now with only two defeats and those were only by a single goal," Adkins said. "We've shown a growing maturity after a baptism of fire back in the Premier League. We've been used to winning at Southampton (in the last two seasons) and we are improving all the time."
