New Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino can expect a backlash from fans tonight against Everton.

Amid rumours of possible protests, Saints fan Steve Grant, who runs SaintsWeb, Southampton's largest internet forum, said Pochettino could expect it to be a far from straight-forward start.

Grant warned: "As far as I am concerned he will have my support but there will be a lot of fans who will take the view that he has got to earn their support. It is going to be difficult given the run of games we have coming up."
