Get your white hankies out. Southampton supporters will show their support for former manager Nigel Adkins in today’s home match against Everton by shaking their handkerchiefs for a worldwide TV audience.
While Mauricio Pochettino steps in for his first game in charge of the Saints, most of the attention will be focused on Southampton FC club chairman Nicola Cortese for his decision in removing Adkins despite the Saints being on a good run of form and sitting in the position of sixth-from-bottom.
White hankies aside, Everton has the opportunity to take advantage of Arsenal losing yesterday by forging a six point gap over the Gunners. Southampton, meanwhile, will be hoping that Rickie Lambert can continue his goalscoring run in front of goal.
