Paul Wotton is hoping to feature more regularly under new Southampton head coach Mark Wotte after a difficult start to his career at St Mary's.The former Plymouth captain has only made 11 starts for Saints since he became former manager Jan Poortvliet's first signing last June.The midfielder told BBC Radio Solent: "I've got a point to prove. I haven't got going at Southampton all season."I've had a frustrating time but hopefully that's in the past."Wotton and other senior Saints players have already been consulted by Wotte since he took over from Poortvliet at the weekend.And, with Southampton in the midst of a relegation battle, the 31-year-old admitted it was time for him to stand up and be counted."I want to repay some of the faith Southampton showed by giving me a three-year contract, giving me and my family some security," he said.Plymouth-born Wotton spent 13 years at his home-town club before swapping the west country for the south coast and he has no illusions about where his loyalty now lies."I'm very proud to play for Southampton Football club. It's an awesome club and I need to repay some of the faith they showed in me," he added.
