Southampton's shock sacking of boss Nigel Adkins last week has been labelled "disgraceful" by furious fans amid rumours of supporter unrest at Monday night's Barclays Premier League clash with Everton.

Nick Grant, the owner of SaintsWeb, Southampton's biggest internet forum, says new manager Mauricio Pochettino will have a hard task to win over some fans angry at Adkins' departure.

Fans plan to wave white handkerchiefs to indicate their displeasure during the St Mary's clash, in which Saints will bid to move further clear of the relegation zone by extending a run of just two defeats in their last 12 games.
