Adkins set for soccer-fest

Saints host promotion rivals Peterborough on Saturday before leaders Brighton travel along the south coast on Tuesday and Cheltenham arrive in the FA Cup next weekend.

"We've got a soccer-fest lined up at St Mary's with two fantastic league games and a cup game," said Adkins.

"It's a great week in store for everybody with some exciting football. They are tough games but ones we are looking forward to.

"Peterborough have some talented players and we`ve got to be good in defence and ruthless going the other way.

"Brighton will be a good game for everybody, they pass the ball as we want to go and do. It's about winning games of football and we have to get the balance right."
