Adkins: Squad is ready for title charge
Published : 13 Feb 2012 08:30:13
NIGEL Adkins believes his Saints squad is looking strong ahead of their final 16 matches.
A host of key stars have been welcomed back in recent weeks and the manager was able to select from an almost fully-fit group at the weekend.
The result was a comfortable 2-0 victory over Burnley that has boosted confidence for the rest of the promotion push.
Adkins believes Saints are now well-set for the last two-and-a-half months of the campaign.
“Obviously, players are now all fit and available and fighting for positions,” he said.
“The unity among the players is there for all to see. It’s not just about 11, it’s about the whole group.
“They all want to be in that starting 11 now, but we have got a strong squad.
“We’ve now arrived at the latter stages of the campaign, and I believe we’re very strong as a unit in mentality, and strong with the players we’ve got, to deal with the situations that will arise with playing every three or four days now.”
