Southampton manager Nigel Adkins heaped praise on his team after a stunning all-round display in the 6-0 win at Oldham.

There were six different scorers for Saints, Alex Chamberlain opening the scoring and Adam Lallana adding a second.

Guly Do Prado made it three, Richard Chaplow grabbed the fourth with an emphatic drive from 16 yards, Rickie Lambert slotted in a fifth and substitute Lee Barnard completed the rout four minutes from time.

Adkins said: "Our mentality was bang on right through the game and they all worked very hard for 94 minutes. I don't know yet if it's the best performance they have given me since I came to the club but it's a very good victory at a difficult place."

He added: "Sometimes when you look back at our games you think we weren't ruthless enough but we had six different scorers and we`ve put ourselves in a good position for the second half of the season.

"We are keeping our feet on the ground and just striving to be the best we can, but obviously I am delighted. The wheels are in motion and you have to be pleased with the performance on a cold Tuesday night at Oldham.

"Our work-rate and effort are something everyone has bought into and wants to be a part of."
