Tough draw, but should be a decent game, and at least it's at home - if they can overcome them here, then gets rid of a major rival!

This is a perfect draw for the long term. We get a good look at Southampton without the league risk, and we can learn what to do for the two matches against Southampton that really count.

Scott..... exactly both teams will be sounding each other out in this one. Could have been an easier draw but win or lose, this could benefit us in the long run.
