Slade targets Saints scalp

07 April 2011 12:00
Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade has tipped Southampton to snatch second spot this season - but plans to derail their promotion bid on Saturday. Saints currently lie third and have games in hand as they prepare to travel to Brisbane Road to face an Orient side still in with a shout of the play-offs. "We've got Southampton on Saturday, obviously they are looking for automatic promotion and they are probably my bet to go up automatically," said Slade. "We know that it`s going to be a very tough game because they have threats all over the pitch. "They are a very talented side and probably shouldn't be in this division, but we are looking forward to the game."
