Southampton Face A Crucial Period

Apart from the home game against Cheltenham in the second round of the FA Cup, we have a game away to Carlisle and then Peterborough and Brighton at home.

Carlisle are one point behind us and will be itching to gain revenge for the Wembley mauling that we handed out to them last season.

This should be a good game and with us in our current form we could exact another defeat on the Cumbrians. It won't be easy and our midfield will have to stand up and be counted but I am hopeful of victory.

Peterborough at home will follow and this is a game I would expect us to win. Our home form is now good and Peterborough have let in a few goals on their travels though they are always going to be dangerous as they can score goals.

Brighton will maybe be our biggest game of the season so far. If we can inflict a defeat on them then we could well be moving ever cloer to the crest.

Brighton have shown a remarkably good standard of play and could well be the best team in the league. Their position as top dog suggests this be the case.

Three hard games and hopefully three good performances to go with them. If we can avoid defeat in these games we will at worst Have kept in touch with the pack and at best have moved closer to the top.

My biggest hope is that a successful cup run doesn't interfere with our push for promotion.

With December looking easier on paper I am hopeful that come January we will be in good shape regarding our position in the league.

Two wins from these three games will do for me. It will keep us well up and in the mix ready for a rush in December ready for a big push in the new year.
