Southampton manager Nigel Adkins says that he still has the desire he did when he joined the club.

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has remained defiant regarding his future in charge of the Premier League's bottom side, despite another defeat on the road at West Bromwich Albion.

Two goals from Peter Odemwingie either side of the break condemned the Saints to their eighth defeat in 10 games, adding more pressure on the 47-year-old.

However, Adkins said that he is still hungry for success on the South coast and remains "positive" about his future with the club.

"I'm standing here a far better manager than when I joined Southampton and better than I was six years ago," Adkins told Sky Sports News.

"I've got a hunger and a desire. I love being at Southampton. The supporters have been fantastic since I joined the club.

"I'm positive and it is my responsibility to lead from the front and I have every desire to go and do that."

Adkins took control of Southampton when they were in League Two in 2010.
