Dave Horseman's side will be looking to return to their good form in Premier League 2, after suffering a painful defeat at home to Wolves last-time-out.

The visitors opened the scoring before goals from Luke Pearce and a Dexter Lembiksa own goal flipped the game on it's head just past the hour mark.

But Wolves fought back, eventually securing a 4-2 win at Staplewood Campus.

Burnley suffered contrasting fortunes last week, coming away from Sunderland with a 2-0 victory thanks to two goals from Owen Dodgson.

A win for Saints would see them rise up to fourth, whilst Saturday's hosts can draw level with Aston Villa in ninth with a victory.

The two sides last came together at the end of September, in front of over 600 fans at St Mary's Stadium.

Burnley had the better of an inexperienced Saints side on the day, scoring the opener in first-half stoppage time through Sam Unwin.

The second came just over 15 minutes from time, Ne-Jai Tucker securing all three points.
