Saints to be backed by big following

Saints to be backed by big following

Southampton will once again be backed by a strong away following when they travel to Watford this Saturday.

The Saints, who regained top spot after Saturday's 4-0 defeat over Derby, will be followed by over 2,000 fans for what is a huge game in Hertfordshire.

Nigel Adkins' side are two points clear of West Ham, but the Irons have two games in hand.

Southampton have just won four games away from home this season, and they will have to improve their away form if they are to gain promotion to the Premier League.

Saturday's game is the first of two games away from the south coast - the following Saturday sees the leaders travel to Elland Road for what will be Neil Warnock's third game in charge of Leeds.

But the Saints have to concentrate on Saturday's task of beating Watford. Earlier in the season Adkins' men put four past a Watford side at St Mary's - and the Hampshire outfit will be looking to do the same at Vicarage Road this weekend.

Nice one Abe. I don't mind if we don't manage the four just as long as we can grab the points. 2-0 or 2-1 would do just fine.

We need is a convincing away win to give us confidence and build momentum. I'm pleased that we're playing a lot more like we were at the start of the season. That's probably down to Fonte and Chaplow coming back from on injury - and the new signings.

It might not be as easy as you may think...
