Southampton boss Nigel Adkins has vowed to stick by goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga for Saturday's trip to Liverpool, despite his latest blunder.

Gazzaniga was at fault for Norwich's equaliser in midweek as he allowed Robert Snodgrass' free-kick to squirm under his body and into the net.

Adkins has a lot of faith in his summer signing from Gillingham and is set to stand by Gazzaniga for the game at Anfield.

"Paulo is only 20 years old and is improving all the time - he is going to be a top goalkeeper," said Adkins.

"We have changed the goalkeeper a few times this season, but all our points have been picked up when Gazza has been in goal.

"I always say you have to be allowed to make mistakes, but it has not fazed him.

"He has shown great maturity by holding his hands up and saying, 'I should have saved that' and that is very pleasing."
