Southampton need to overcome their shyness in front of the cameras for this game. We have a poor record recently and with high scoring Peterborough in opposition won’t need any further distractions.

with both teams capable of scoring plenty of goals this could be a cracking game and one which with luck will show everybody that the united game wasn’t a one off performance.

Vital Quotes:

Peterborough Team News:

Skipper Grant McCann after suspension, and defender Lee Frecklington could both return for this game.

efender Gabriel Zakuani is still a long term casualty with his dislocated shoulder.

Player to watch: Craig Mackail-Smith

Craig has netted a lot of goals for Posh and is on several clubs’ radar. Saints were reported to have been interested in him recently. Will need to be watched closely.

Southampton Team News:

Skipper Dean Hammond is hoping to start after coming on as a sub on Tuesday. Adam Lallana may not yet be ready but has started light training.

Player to watch: Rickie Lambert

Rickie saved our bacon with two late headers on Tuesday and will fancy his chances of adding to his tally against the suspect Posh defence.
