Hooiveld refusing to panic
Southampton defender Jos Hooiveld believes there is no need to panic despite his side's poor start to the season.
The Saints came into the Premier League on the back of two consecutive promotions but have struggled to adapt to the pace so far this season, following defeats to Manchester City and Wigan.
Boss Nigel Adkins has chosen to stick with the majority of the squad that has served him so well over the last few years but a number of pundits have now suggested that he will need to heavily invest if they're to avoid relegation.
However, Hooiveld is adamant they have enough ability to compete in the Premier League and no-one is panicking at St Mary's.
"This is the kind of club where we do not panic easily. We came from League One two years ago and are now in the top flight," he said. "There are a lot of things we need to learn and need to be cleverer in but if you look at the players here, it will come."
Punters who don't fancy Southampton's survival chances may choose to use their free bet on tipping the Saints to finish bottom of the table.
