Adkins deflated by late defeat

Manager Nigel Adkins is deflated that Southampton could not hold out for a draw after Robin Van Persie's 90th minute header gave Manchester United a 3-2 win.

The Saints led twice with Rickie Lambert opening the score before Morgan Schneiderlin put the hosts ahead again following Van Persie's first equaliser.

The Dutchman missed a penalty but recovered to draw United level before his decisive stoppage-time intervention.

The result leaves Southampton pointless and bottom of the Premier League after three defeats.
