Nigel Adkins Satisfied With Performance

Nigel Adkins Satisfied With Performance

Saints found it difficult to get their fluid passing game going against Watford with the bumpy pitch being held responsible.

In a dogged performance full of grit Saints were uncompromising in defense with the Watford attack barely able to get a sight of the Saints goal.

Nigel said after the game, "It was very pleasing to come away and win 3-0 on a very lively pitch against a very spirited Watford side," he said.'

"We knew before the game what the game would probably end up being like and I must give great credit to our players because they`ve applied themselves very well.'

"We know we can play football on beautiful pitches where we pass the ball about and here we`ve had to do the other side of it and I think the lads have applied themselves very well and done that.'

For the fans it was just a pleasure to see that we have learned to play ugly if necessary and in doing so produce the necessary win.
