St Mary's Stadium
Tues 2nd November
Southampton will meet a new opposition as the two teams meet for the very first time in history.
Southampton appear to be coming out of their poor start to the season and have high hopes of making it four home wins on the trot.
Dagenham have not won in ten games away and have just two draws in their last six.
Dagenham are an energetic side and will be a threat from set plays.
The manager says, 'We have to work hard and pass the ball quickly, and compete with the opposition to earn the right to play football then when we get the opportunity we have to be ruthless.'
I watched the dvd of their draw at Colchester and I thought they were by far the better teamand unfortunate not to actually win it.
Frazer Richardson is expected to retain his place at right back with Butterfield still carrying his knock. Oscar Gobern and David Connolly are now in light training.
Rickie is coming into form slowly and someone is going to feel the force when he starts banging them in.
Peter Gain and Danny Green could be back in place of Darren Guthrie and Damian Scannell. Defenders Abu Ogogo and Will Antwi are both back in training but unlikely to be ready.
Romain has played 16 games this season and has scored 5 goals. For a right back this is a pretty good statistic, though he plays midfield and the Frenchman has done well for the Daggers.
The two sides have never met before so there are no statistics available between them.

Saints on all known form should win but they will need to fight for control first. 3-0
