Team News

  • Richard Chaplow and Frazer Richardson both look doubtful, but both may appear if Nigel Adkins feels they are fit enough for a return.
  • After another great result, beating Newcastle at home 2-0, Nigel Adkins' side will feel that they have the confidence and ability to come out of the fixture with a win.
  • Southampton's attacking midfield trio were a constant threat to Newcastle, accumulating 18 shots, and hitting the woodwork 3 times throughout.
  • Russell Martin returns after sustaining a back injury a couple weeks back.
  • Mark Bunn might make his first start for Norwich in the EPL after John Ruddy got a slight knock to his thigh in the latter stages of the 1-1 draw to Everton on the weekend.
  • With Grant Holt failing to score in 5 successive league games, he will be eager to get back onto the score sheet.
  • Leon Barnett should start after Chris Hughton confirmed that Michael Turner will be out for a few weeks.

Prediction

  • Southampton have been on a good run of form in the past couple weeks, beating both QPR and Newcastle. Nigel Adkins' men will be looking to improve on their current form and try to pull away from the relegation zone.
  • Norwich, meanwhile, are firmly fixed in mid-table and unbeaten for 7 games in all competitions, beating Arsenal, Man Utd and Tottenham in that run, and the Canaries will be looking to extend this streak at St. Mary's.
  • With Southampton only failing to score in 1 game so far this season and conceding a total of 30 goals, there could be an abundance of goals in this fixture.
