Southampton and Stoke set for a nervy afternoon
St Mary's crowd will be tense
Both teams could do with a win but Saints haven't taken three points at home since November and Stoke haven't bagged an away win since October.
The home crowd are likely to be nervous and it will be tough for Southampton to execute their preferred passing style against a Stoke side playing with plenty of energy and enthusiasm under Paul Lambert.
1pt 14-5 Betway, Coral
Charlie Austin (hamstring) is out and Steven Davis and Shane Long are doubts with minor injuries.
Peter Crouch and Ryan Shawcross (both ankle) are available but Lee Grant (wrist) and Stephen Ireland (calf) are out.
Stoke haven't won any of their last ten away fixtures.
