Nigel Adkins praises Saints' adventure in Everton defeat

Manager Nigel Adkins targets "four away wins" in the Premier League as he defends Southampton's attacking intent having taken the lead before losing 3-1 to Everton.

Record signing Gaston Ramirez headed home in the sixth minute but Leon Osman's equaliser set up a period in which the Goodison crowd were "right behind" the home team as two Nikica Jelavic goals sealed the win.

Adkins credits his side for having "good possession in good areas" but the defeat leaves Southampton 17th with three points from six games.
