Southampton are currently in second place in the Championship but they are showing anything but title form at present having picked up just two wins in their last nine league games. Saints’ promotion can suffer a further blow this weekend as well, as Nigel Adkins’ men visit fourth-placed Birmingham.
The in-form Blues have won their last six in all competitions, culminating in an impressive 4-1 victory at Leeds on Tuesday and Chris Hughton’s side have found the net a massive 20 times across their winning streak.
Subsequently, at 6/5 via Ladbrokes they’re hard to oppose against the faltering visitors, BetVictor’s 13/5 outsiders and a case can be made for Blue Square’s 3/1, marked against a Birmingham triumph by a one-goal margin.
Elsewhere, Burnley have lost just one in seven and can get the better of Peterborough, a result Paddy Power quote at 3/4, Cardiff are a tempting 10/11 with BetVictor to beat a Blackpool side that have ridden their luck to say the least of late and West Ham should get back to winning ways (8/13, Betfred) as they host Millwall in the lunchtime kick-off. That trio combine at 4/1 at Ladbrokes.
