Adkins hails importance of victory

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins reckons his side`s 3-2 come-from-behind victory against MK Dons could be "a defining moment" in Saints` season.The visitors established a firm control of proceedings with goals from Gary MacKenzie and Sam Baldock.Yet substitute Jonathan Forte struck twice in as many minutes before Lee Barnard struck a 77th-minute winner.Adkins said: "I think this is a defining moment in our season. We started well but then things went a bit flat, but the crowd stayed with us, even when we were two goals behind."They don't realise how important they are - they kept us going. When I was manager at Scunthorpe we would try to frustrate the crowds at big clubs, but our supporters just keep going and keep supporting us."I am delighted for Jonathan Forte, I know he has that pace and that strength and hopefully this can kickstart his season now. He has that quality to get goals."
