Chop­per looks okay to Adam


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SOUTHAMP­TON winger Adam Lal­lana doesn’t care if his re­ward for his fourth goal of the sea­son is be­ing dropped for tonight’s clash against Pre­ston.

Lal­lana scored the third goal in Saints’ 4-1 maul­ing of Birm­ing­ham on Sun­day – but he is ready for boss Nigel Ad­kins to name a sec­ond string side against Phil Brown’s men.

Lal­lana said: “We could play a dif­fer­ent team if the man­ager wanted to.

“That shows the strength in depth that we have, so it’s great.”

Pre­ston are on a sixgame win­ning run and boss Brown said: “Now the hard­est thing is to make it seven – and that is a big ask given we have Southamp­ton next.”
