Saints v Burnley Preview
St Mary's Stadium
Sat 11th Feb 2012
Southampton face one of the best away teams on known form this season. Burnley have the second best away form statistics in the Championship showing eight wins though they also have six defeats to show.
This means we are likely to face a side that is good at counter attacking and will have to keep our shape and concentration at all times.
Southampton Team News:
Saints have a nearly full squad again with most of the injured about to return or having played for part of a game.
We could see Billy Sharp start for the first time
Player to watch: Adam Lallana
Adam has begun to show his form of the early season and could be the one to unlock the door for our strikers.
Burnley Team News:
The Clarets could be unchanged as they have no fresh concerns from last weekend's 1-1 draw with Peterborough
Player to watch: Jay Rodriguez
Jay has an impressive 17 goals to his name and he will be a major threat.
