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.
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.
