Under-23s boss Radhi Jaïdi is encouraging as many Saints fans as possible to visit St Mary's tomorrow evening, when his side entertain West Brom in Premier League 2.

Saints' youngsters last hosted Wolves at the stadium, a fortnight ago, which produced an exciting five goals, and a red and white victory, thanks to a last-gasp winner from captain Tom O'Connor.

And while Jaïdi expects less drama this time around, he's confident his young side can produce a suitable amount of Friday night entertainment for local fans to enjoy.

"There's a good team spirit around the group at the moment," Jaïdi began.

"That keeps the boys wanting to work hard to develop and perform at the levels we expect.

"We're building a great link between the boys, so they're enjoying the demands we put on them.

"As always, it'll be a good game to watch, especially at St Mary's.

"Again, we want more fans to come and watch. It's good for the boys to experience a crowd and we want fans to get involved.

"West Brom are lower than us in the table, but we don't take that lightly, we're expecting a tough match and I'm sure that's what we'll get."
