Southampton face opponents in Birmingham who have gone on a great run since finishing their European adventure, so much so they have climbed into the play-off places.
Indeed it could be said that they are swiftly overhauling the clubs at the top and are looking to continue this run on Saturday. They are still unbeaten this season at St Andrews and will be exceedingly tough opponents for the Saints.
Southampton have shown a loss of form of late but there was the hint of a possible return to their early season form in the last game at home to Cardiff. A spirited second half performance gave us a point as we equalised an earlier Cardiff goal and it was felt by all at the stadium that the team was unlucky not to win.
With players returning from injury and additions made to the squad hopefully these signs can be turned into a powerful attacking styled game in which we can hold sway.
Guirane N'Daw should be available after returning from the Africa Cup of Nations.
Striker Marlon King could also be available again after missing the last two matches with a groin problem, if he doesn't make it, then Adam Rooney will compete for a place.
The tall Zigic will be a handfull for the Saints as they are likely to be without Hooiveldt for a bit longer.
Billy Sharp could make his debut after joining the club on Monday from Doncaster.
Dean Hammond will also be pushing for a start after his late cameo in the midweek draw with Cardiff.
Chun Lee could also be pushing for a start and Chaplow may be ready for a part in the game.
Billy may have to wait for a start but he will be champing at the bit to show what he can do for the team.
Even without the fact Birmingham are on a great run, they have a good record against Southampton.
They have won 10, drawn 7 and lost just 5.
Mr Chris Foy officiates Mr I Gosling and Mr A Watts assist. The Fourth Official is Mr. D. Mohareb.
Sadly I go for a 2-1 scoreline praying that I am wrong.
