Jan Poortvliet's team are ready to face managerless Charlton this Saturday at the Valley. The Saints could make it three away wins on the spin following dramatic victories at Deepdale and the Madejski.
The Saints are set to name an unchanged side for the third match in a row as they look to inflict more pain on a dejected Charlton team.
The Addicks have taken advantage of the late loan deadline, bringing in Jay Demerit from Derby County, Keith Gillespie from Sheffield United and Deon Burton from Sheffield Wednesday. Luke Varney exits the Valley to join up with the Blades on a last minute loan deal.
Jason Euell remains suspended, so the Jamaican will not feature against his old club. Skipper Michael Svensson suffered another injury on Wednesday night, aggravating his Achilles in a reserves fixture against QPR.
'When you go to Charlton you know they will be organised, honest, will work hard and they've got few good players.'
Keith Gillespie is set to make his home debut for the Addicks, while other loanee's Jay McEveley and Deon Burton join the squad.
Chinese international Zheng Zhi remains out with a foot injury.
With three league goals this season for the Addicks, the Algerian striker will look end Charlton's win drought of nearly two months.
Skipper Michael Svensson faced another setback on Wednesday, and will not feature this Saturday.
Jason Euell remains suspended, while Tomas Pekhart is out injured.
McGoldrick celebrates his 21st birthday tomorrow and will look to end his four game goal drought by netting for the Saints.
52 matches between the two sides, with the Hampshire side having the edge with 23 wins to Charlton's 16.

Charlton 0 - 2 Southampton: The Saints to win their third away win on the spin and get a respectable seven points from nine.
