Southampton vs. Brentford

St Mary's Stadium

Sat 11th December

Southampton v Brentford Preview

Southampton will be hoping to improve upon last years result where the teams fought out a 1-1 draw.

The team has looked better after a poor start this season and with a good home run going they will be expected to do well.

Brentford have also had some good games with their last game being a 2-0 win over Colchester. They may well be looking forward to this game as a way of showing how much they are also improving as the season unfolds.

Vital Quotes:

Southampton Team News:

Jose Fonte is out through suspension after reaching 5 bookings and will be missed. Hopefully this will give young Aaron Martin a shot at a game.

Dan Seaborne and Dan Harding are both back in full training and could be part of the matchday squad.

Lee Holmes is still likely to be out after picking up an injury in the Cheltenham FA Cup match.

Player to watch: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

All the talk lately is over the emerging young talent we have and I see Alex as being the inspiration needed to get us going with his speedy runs and willingness to shoot.

Brentford Team News:

It is nealy three weeks since Brentford's last game.

Manager Andy Scott will be boosted by having QPR loanie striker Rowan Vine available with Carl Cort also a possibility as he comes back from a long term injury.

Player to watch: Gary Alexander

Alexander could be a threat to Saints if he keeps his place and is a big strong hard working striker.

Match Facts & Stats

Saints have met Brentford a total of 19 times at home, winning 10, drawing 6, and losing just 3.

Since 1959 and a 6-0 defeat Saints have only met the Bees 3 times. Two cup meetings and just the one league game.

The last two games finished all square.

Brentford have won their last four away matches.

Ref Watch:

Mr Oliver Langford from the West Midlands officiates Mr J Busby and Mr P Rees assist. Mr N Radford is 4th Official.

Match Prediction:

I expect a tough match and think that we will need to be at our best if we want to garner the three points. With Brentford doing so well away I think a single goal could split the two times. 2-1
