Saints out to dent City record

SAINTS face the daunting prospect this weekend of trying to score against the side with the second best away defensive record in the top four divisions.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has only conceded 10 goals in his 11 away Premier League matches in 2012/13.

England’s undisputed No 1 has kept four clean sheets on his travels this season, including his last two games at Arsenal and QPR.

The only other team in the top four leagues in England with a better awyay defensive record is League 2 high-fliers Gillingham.

They have only let in nine goals in 13 away league games.

But even the Gills are nowhere near the incredible record currently held by German Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.

In away league games this season, they have only conceded one goal!

At least there is hope for Saints this weekend, though.

Hart has only conceded more than one goal in five Premier League games this season.

The first of those occasions was on the opening day of the season when Saints conceded a late goal to lose 3-2.

Liverpool (twice), Manchester United and Norwich have also scored two or more goals against him.

Do you mean a goal riot, like 5-4, or 6-3 scoreline? If so, could be, cos they might as well come and play attacking...

Citeh were lucky last time ,they know SAINTS can play & score goals,we had just come up from the championship & most of our players were not use to Prem football.We have since got better & can score against the best ( as proven ) so i believe we have no fear and will give them a right old game.

Close game either way.
Two teams high press, depends on our injuries.
We deserve some luck but this is a top notch side who if they do not win are basically out the title hunt so this is a critical 3 points for them as it is us. In other words a cup final.

OVERDUE A WIN AT HOME.

WE ARE THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON.

WE HAVE FIREPOWER AND PLENTY OF STRIKE OPTIONS (otherwise we would have dipped into the Transfer Market)

WE HAVE RICKIE (who is due one from a set piece with all the work on the Training Ground)

A hostile atmosphere at ST MARY'S which sets us apart from the quiet Home fans around the Country.

See You in the ITCHEN NORTH.

RED ARMY 2013.
WE FIGHT. WE WIN. COYR.
