Southampton vs. Bournemouth

St Mary's

Tuesdat 10th August

7.45pm

Saints v Cherries

This is a game that a lot of fans have earmarked as a must watch for a long timwe. The last time that the two sides met in earnest was way back in 1987. The saints drawing 2-2 at home after losing 1-0 at Dean Court thus losing 3-2 on aggregate in the League Cup. This is also in the cup and I am hoping that we do a bit better this time.

Vital Quotes:

Southampton Team News:

We still have doubts over Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana though both are nearing a return to full fitness. Frazer Richardson and Oscar Gobern are bouth definitely out.

Player to watch: Lee Barnard

Lee Barnard will be hoping to get more chances in this game and could prove a danger. If He gats a game then Bialkowski would be someone to watch.

Bournemouth Team News:

Harry Arter may be available though withdrawn at half-time against Charlton.Michael Symes may again have to settle for a place on the bench as he recovers from a groin strain.

Player to watch: Brett Pitman

Brett Pitman could be a lethal threat with his shooting boots on as he is more than capable of doing a Lambert and scoring from distance.

Head to Head

Saints are unbeaten at home by Bournemouth. Winning 5 and drawing 4 of the nine matches played. That said we have not yet managed to win a cup game against the Cherries at home.

Ref Watch:

Mr Phil Crossley from Kent takes charge. Assistants will be Mr D Margetts & Mr G Young 4th Official is Mr H Lennard

Match Prediction:

I feel we will edge a tight exciting clash 2 goals to 1.

I think we will have a full strength team apart from the two L's. Both sides will be going all out for the win.

Time we start to flex our muscles and show we know how to force our opponents to concede defeat when necessary.
