It has now reached the final flourish as Saints keep pushing for the second place position that they desperately seek. Brentford fans will be hoping that they can do a number on us to force ever more pressure on us in our last two games.
Brentford Team News:
Brentford have had some serious injury problems of late and appear to still have a shortage of available players.Keeper Richard Lee is still likely to be out and he is likely to be joined by Osborne and Alexander after missing the last match at Notts County. Balkestein, Legge and Woodman are also likely to be missing.
Player to watch: Moore
The keeper may have a busy afternoon ahead of him and he might have to be on his best form to have any chance of keeping us out.
Southampton Team News:
After making 6 changes for the last match, Adkins might bring back Jaidi and Chaplow. Schneiderlin is getting closer to a recall as he recovers from his injury.
Player to watch: Adam Lallana
Coming back from injury Adam is likely to be nearing full fitness now and could be our main attacking threat with his ball skills coming to the fore.
