Notts County v Southampton

Notts County
vs.
Southampton

Meadow Lane

Sat 30th October

3pm

County have dismissed Craig Short and appointed Paul Ince as manager since Saturday.
Paul will be looking to get off to a good start and will be hoping that his new charges raise their game for him.
Saints will be hoping that the new manager syndrome doesn't rear its ugly head as it normally does when we face a club with a new manager.

Vital Quotes:

Notts County Team News:

Striker Lee Hughes sits out this game as he has been booked five times. Fellow striker and leading scorer Craig Westcarr is also a doubt through injury.

Player to watch: Thompson

This is a game that will depend a lot on how players at the back for County handle our three way threat.

Southampton Team News:

Skipper Dean Hammond is expected to return after serving his one match suspension. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played for 75 minutes in the Youth FA Cup win on Weds and will probably be on the bench.

Player to watch: Adam Lallana

Adam is such a big part of the team set-up and has become an invaluable member of the team.

Match Facts & Stats

Notts have been at home 26 times against Saints, winning 8, drawing 7 and losing 11.
The bare stats give us hope but the most recent games at Meadow Lane Have County with the edge. The last meeting was in the League Cup and County won this 2-0 4 years ago.

Ref Watch:

Mr Jock Waugh officiates Mr S Barrow & Mr S Smith assist 4th official is Mr D Plowright

Match Prediction:

I think we will scrape a win and go 0-2
