Southampton take on Fulham on Sunday 7th October, 2012, with kickoff at 13:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
So far six games have yielded a grand total of just three points for Southampton, and while the pundits may go on about how Nigel Adkins has earned this run at the Premier League it is a fact the getting up to this level does not happen all that often, and a chance must be maximised if it comes along.
With that in mind, and the considerable investment made also taken into account, the former physio will have to get his side defending more ably soon or face the sort of fan ire that eventually did for Steve Kean.
