Southampton Preview – Will the Saints make home advantage count?

Southampton have had a mixed bag of results of late, though the Saints have suffered just one defeat in their last seven league and cup fixtures. Last time out, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops held Premier League leaders Manchester City to a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s.

Southampton were involved in a five-goal thriller with Swansea City in the third round. The game finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, but we were treated to three goals in extra time, with two of those going to the Saints.

Our betting prediction:
Southampton to keep a clean sheet

(odds taken 1317 GMT, Friday 5 February)

Southampton have been excellent in front of their home fans this season, suffering just one home loss. Since losing in the league to Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Hampshire club have won three and drawn five of eight at St Mary’s. Will their unbeaten home run continue this weekend?

Coventry City Preview – Can the Championship club defy the bookies?

Coventry City were one of the surprise packages in the Championship in the early months of the season. Mark Robins’ men have gone off the boil lately, but the Sky Blues are just five points away from the play-offs at present.

Coventry are in patchy form, as the Midlands club have won three and lost two of their last five in all competitions. In their last one, City lost 1-0 against promotion rivals Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.
