Radhi Jaïdi has been looking ahead to Saints' Premier League 2 clash with Brighton tonight, after the Under-23s' four-match winning streak was abruptly halted by Norwich last time out.
Jaïdi's youngsters are preparing for three fixtures, in three different competitions, in the upcoming eight days, and the Saints coach has talked us through their hectic schedule and preparation routine as the games near.
"We always make sure that the boys recover well," he began. "We have a good setup here. The boys have staff and facilities at their disposal, to make sure they are ready for the next three games.
radhi jaïdiit's a home game, and we want to lead from the front in terms of creating chances.
"Surely it will be a different message each game, the Premier League Cup games are obviously different to Checkatrade Trophy fixtures. But mainly we want the players to understand that the standards need to be maintained, individually and collectively. That will make us win games.
"It is a home game, we want to lead from the front in terms of creating chances. Lately, we have been missing opportunities, not effective enough in the final third, so the concentration in training has been on controlling the game and finishing chances."
Asked about the potential for an experienced starting XI at Staplewood tonight, Jaïdi remained reserved in his response: "The one thing I know is that our 23s boys will be ready!"
