It's a game widely being referred to as a bottom of the table six-pointer. Tomorrow Southampton travel to fellow Premier League strugglers QPR. And despite a heady amount of speculation about his future at the club, Saints boss Nigel Adkins remains confident that results will improve.
Sitting just above Saints are Reading, and boss Brian McDermott says he'll implement a new plan against Everton tomorrow. He told reporters that after last week's clean sheet against Norwich his team look a lot more solid. They could though be without injured winger Jimmy Kebe.
Championship: Brighton travel to Huddersfield. League One: Eddie Howe looks for fifth consecutive win at home to Oldham. Pompey at home to Doncaster. Swindon and Crawley are at home. League Two: Aldershot travel to Wimbledon. Oxford are at Chesterfield and Gills face Morecambe.
