Southampton manager Nigel Adkins felt his side could have scored more goals after they stuffed Peterborough 4-1 in a stylish display.

Goals from Lee Barnard, Jose Fonte and Richard Chaplow had put Saints firmly in control, and after Aaron Mclean pulled one back for Posh, substitute Guly Do Prado scored a superb header.

It was Saints' sixth straight home win in all competitions and Adkins said: "We scored four goals and it could have been more, their keeper pulled off some excellent saves."

He added: "We were always in the ascendancy and it was good to win by such a margin but I still feel there's a lot more to come from this team.

"We want to win this League and to do that we have to win our home games and I'm pleased that we are in a run where we have won our last six at home."
