Southampton begin 2011 with a home game against Exeter. After hitting the top six again, this game will show us whether we can reach the same heights on a regular basis as that when we beat Huddersfield.
Southampton Team News:
Saints have only the one player injured, Lee Holmes, and he is out for the season. Danny Butterfield should be ready after suffering from a dead leg against Huddersfield.
Player to watch: Rickie Lambert
After breaking his long scoring drought Rickie might be ready to begin a run of games where he shows the form of last season.
Exeter City Team News:
Exeter have no injury worries ahead of the game. David Noble is hoping to have recovered from a minor knee knock and Tony Archibald-Henville should make a return after missing the last game through suspension.
Player to watch: Jamie Cureton
Cureton has a good goal scoring record and will be a danger to our defence.
