Saints are now unbeaten in their last two PL2 matches, with much improved performances of late as the squad has stabilised from the mid-season rotation.

Last week, Adam Asghar's side picked up three points in style with a dominant 5-1 win over Stoke City at Staplewood.

Tyler Dibling, Joe O’Brien-Whitmarsh and Sonnie Davis struck to put Saints three goals to the good inside 22 minutes, before Nico Lawrence made it four in the first half.

Crystal Palace have been in good form of late and are still unbeaten in 2024, without suffering defeat in nine games across all competitions.

Results in the league have seen them rise up to 11th in the PL2 table, with a comfortable four-point buffer within the play-offs.

Right-back Daniel Imray has hit a rich vein of form, as the 20-year-old has scored four goals in his last three games.


Unfortunately there will be no Saints Play stream on Friday evening, but a full match report and highlights will follow on our website after the game in the Match Centre.
