Radhi Jaïdi and his young troops will battle to extend their unbeaten start when hosting Aston Villa at Staplewood in Premier League 2 this evening.

Saints currently lead the pack, while Villa lie down in fourth, but with only two points separating the sides ahead of tonight's meeting.

And while Jaïdi is managing expectation, he's confident his youngsters can continue to mount an early bid for a Premier League 2 promotion spot this season.

"We need to keep the consistency going in everything we do," the Under-23s boss said.

"The performances have obviously been encouraging, but it is all a result of hard work.

"It's important to send the right messages to people. But we're focussed on ourselves, keeping concentration levels high.

"We're trying to avoid complacency and want to keep our feet on the ground. This group are realistic and they know what is required of them.

"It'll be a good game of football to watch. Obviously we'll try and be creative in order to win the game."
