Southampton After Another Six Against Notts County

Southampton After Another Six Against Notts County

No i am not talking about them hitting another six goals in the match, though that would be nice for us fans to see.

Instead we are trying to make it six wins on the trot and we have not done that for some 30 years.

You have to go all the way back to the 1980/81 season for the last time that the club has enjoyed six wins in a row during a single campaign.

On that occasion, it was Lawrie McMenemy`s team that managed a spectacular seven victories on the spin - five in the old first division and two in the FA Cup.

Saints thumping great win at Oldham on Tuesday night was the fifth win on the trot and is the team can win tomorrow the trip to Tranmere will give them the opportunity to equal the seven wins of 30 years ago.

Only problem I can see is the one that shows us County are also on a long unbeaten run and they won't lie down because we ask them to.

We have Paul Ince as manager of County, and again we will be trying to make our winning run a six timer, We beat MK Dons in our four meetings last season and county at St Mary's this, so again will be hoping for more of the same.

All of which seems to add a little bit of spice to an already important game.

I want to win and all fans at the ground will want the same thing. Worry about performance once we are in control.

We were here earlier in the season and failed to win so let's get the win first before we start looking at Tranmere.

Were the stats correct that you had no shot on target?
