Southampton and Peterborough will both be looking to bounce back after costly defeats. Saints being at home will probably feel better able to respond but on their day Posh have been known to bang in a few goals. Could be a fairly high scoring game.

Vital Quotes:

Southampton Team News:

With Jason Puncheon going out on loan to Millwall to there must be at least one change to the matchday squad.
Butterfield and Oscar Gobern could both be set for a return having recovered from their injuries.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be set to keep his place after his international debut for the England U18’s.

Player to watch: Adam Lallana

Adam could again be the catalist for our forward play as we entertain a side with a reputedly fragile back line of defence.

Peterborough Team News:

Dave Hibbert is set to miss several games through injury. Tommy Rowe is another likely to be out for a spell and Frecklington also may miss this game.On loan duo Nyatanga and M Williams could both be set for a recall after sitting out the cup tie.

Player to watch: Kevin Langmead

Scored a great opener in the cup game but will need to be on his toes against expected right midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain.

  • Three points is a must and I am confident that we can get them. Posh will be a danger but we have started to turn it on at home.
