Saturday 1st October, 11am BST

Mikey Harris's side will take to the field for the first time since 17th September on Saturday, looking to bounce back from defeat last-time-out.

That came at Crystal Palace, where Palace took the lead but Brandon Charles secured Saints an equaliser just five minutes later.

The game then flipped onto its head again thanks to a Southampton trialist, before the hosts grabbed all three points through Basilio Rieno Socoliche's double.

It's a similar dilemma for the visiting Cottagers this weekend, who will be looking to bounce back following a 2-1 defeat at Leicester last-time-out.

LAST MEETING

During Saints' title winning season it took a performance of skill, determination and fight to take three points from Fulham in early February.

Despite Leon Pambou, Kamari Doyle and Sonnie Davis storming Harris's side into a 3-0 lead, the hosts fought back during the second half.

Luckily the visitors held on for a deserved 3-2 victory, making it two-from-two for Saints over the Cottagers during the 2021/22 season.
