Must Win Game

Southampton looking for their first win in the league in their first game of the season at St Marys. Birmingham looking to make it two wins from two in the league. Promises to be a ding dong affair.

Vital Quotes:

Jan Poortvliet wants a big crowd at St Marys saying: 'I hope the fans will come to see us because we are keen to show them our passion'. Thats good enough for me Janny boy.

Southampton Team News:

Southampton lead by skipper Michael Svensson, who has just signed a new one year contract, will be looking for a good start to their home season. This is where they will get the most points in the season and will look to make it a fortress. Expect team to be much the same as opening day against Cardiff.

Player to watch: David McGoldrick

Expect him to be on the scoresheet for the third game running.

Birmingham City Team News:

Brum have almost a fully fit squad, with McLeish welcoming back Stephen Kelly and Radhi Jaidi. NI International goalkeeper Maik Taylor is expected to be back between the sticks.

Player to watch: Kevin Phillips

Will be looking to impress against his former club, and make a statment that he still has the quality and legs to play in the majority of B'ham games.

Match Facts & Stats

Last time at St Andrews, Birmingham won 2-1. Last time at St Marys Southampton won 4-3. More of the same please lads.

Ref Watch:

Mr Clive Penton. Last season handed out 98 yellow and 2 red cards in 20 games.

Match Prediction:

My head says 1-1, but my heart says saints to Win 2-1

Next Fixture:

Derby County v Southampton
Championship, Pride Park
