Southampton

SAINTS will be hoping to show their impressive ability at bouncing back from defeat when they host Bristol Rovers this weekend.

Since Nigel Adkins was appointed as manager at St Mary’s, the club have never lost two league games in a row.

Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat at Rochdale means that record is on the line again this weekend, when the struggling Pirates visit the south coast.

Under Adkins, Saints have suffered seven defeats in League One this season. In the games immediately following the previous six losses, they have won five and drawn one.

Peterborough

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has told his players to shut up shop during the League One run-in.

The club’s challenge for automatic promotion has stalled while claiming just one win in their past five matches. It is a run of results that Ferguson insists has featured far too many conceded goals.

Now the London Road chief wants to see a return to the miserly ways which laid the foundations for a tilt at the top two.

Latest on Bournemouth, Brighton and Rochdale on Page Two

Bournemouth

TENACIOUS midfielder Mark Molesley could be poised to hand Cherries a timely boost by adding his weight to their League One promotion push.

Boss Lee Bradbury described Molesley as “more than ready” after watching the 30-year-old come through a behind-closed-doors friendly on Tuesday.

Molesley was last month struck down by an ankle injury – just days after he had hit the comeback trail following a lengthy absence due to a persistent foot problem.

Rochdale

Chris Dunphy is urging the Rochdale townsfolk to push Keith Hill’s men over the line in the race for a play off place.

Dale were just two points behind sixth-placed Bournemouth ahead of last night’s game in hand against Southampton at Spotland.

With the prospect of a play-off final at Old Trafford and the ultimate prize – promotion to the Championship – up for grabs, it’s all to play for.

And Dunphy is calling on the town to get behind the boys.

“We appreciate that times are hard around the country and Rochdale isn’t escaping the recession,” said the Dale chairman.

“We’ve had a look at how we could help supporters without putting the club in financial jeopardy and have come up with a three games for two package to help ease the financial burden."

Brighton

Gus Poyet has warned promoted Albion’s League One rivals there will be no let-up as they aim for the twin target of the title and a ton of points.

The Seagulls will be crowned champions of League One if they win at Walsall on Saturday or Southampton fail to better their result at home to Bristol Rovers.

And they need ten more points from the remaining five matches, including Southampton’s visit to Withdean on Saturday week, to become centurions.
