Reality bites for Saints
Southampton manager Nigel Adkins admitted his side got a Premier League reality check after they were beaten 2-0 at home by Wigan.
Franco Di Santo's classy strike and a late Arouna Kone effort helped the Latics secure their first points of the season.
"We were after the three points," said Adkins. "Obviously we started brightly, we've had some good opportunities.
"The goalkeeper has made some good saves. We've hit the bar on a couple of occasions.
"I think it just highlights how ruthless the Barclays Premier League is.
"Wigan haven't really had that many opportunities but they've gone and scored."
