Wigley's Increasing Concern

Wigley, who is yet to guide the Saints to a Premiership defeat since taking over the managers role from Paul Sturrock, suffered further embarrassment as Saints were thrashed 5-2 by Watford in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.

"It was an horrific result and an horrific performance - the players had words with each other," said Wigley.

"But it is me who takes responsibility. People like me are vulnerable.

"It is difficult to be kind about the performance from the players, from me, everybody.

"I'll take a long hard look at myself and see what I'm like in the morning.

"I haven't had time to speak to the chairman because I have been on the end of three different inquests already.

"I wouldn't think that anybody connected with the football club wants to speak to me at the moment.

"But people are sure to have lost a bit of faith after that.

"We are playing Portsmouth on Saturday in a local derby and that should demand only a positive response," he said.

"I can't say what the future holds for me but I would like to prepare the team for Portsmouth."
