Match Preview

Saints without Holmes Lee Holmes is the only absentee ahead of Southampton`s clash with Exeter on New Year's Day. The former Derby winger underwent surgery on his injured ankle earlier in December and will miss the rest of the season. Midfielder Danny Butterfield will hope to have recovered in time from the dead leg he suffered in the 4-1 win over Huddersfield. Left-back Joseph Mills, winger Jason Puncheon and midfielder Anthony Pulis continue their loan spells away from the club and will not return to the Saints squad in time to face the Grecians. Striker Rickie Lambert scored against the Terriers and will look to improve his haul of seven league goals to remain the club`s top scorer. Nigel Adkins` side can enter the automatic promotion places but are also in danger of losing their play-off position if they fail to win. Exeter will resume their promotion push will a clean bill of health. Paul Tisdale's men have not played since December 18th, when they thrashed Sheffield Wednesday, keeping his charges fresh for the encounter at St Mary's. Troy Archibald-Henville returns after missing the 5-1 defeat of the Owls through a one-match suspension. Tisdale says he may tinker with his squad against the Saints with the Grecians one point off the play-offs. He told thisisdevon.co.uk: "We have got a good core of 17 or 18 players and the 11 who play on Saturday will probably not be the same 11 that play the rest of the season. "I want the squad to stay together because I think we have got a chance of pushing even further up the table."

Match Report

Four-star Saints batter Exeter Southampton climbed into the League One automatic promotion play-offs with a crushing 4-0 victory over Exeter at St Mary's. Guly do Prado set Saints on their way with a well-taken brace and although Exeter had their moments, Southampton underlined their superiority with further goals from Adam Lallana and Lee Barnard. Guly opened Saints' account with an emphatic finish midway through the first half after Lallana's attempted pass had deflected kindly into his path and the Brazilian, on loan from Italian club Cesena, took his league goals tally to four soon after with an easy finish. Lallana stretched Southampton's lead even further when he worked a short corner with Richard Chaplow and his curling cross fooled Exeter keeper Paul Jones. Substitute Barnard notched his sixth league goal of the season with a tidy finish after Ryan Dickson had knocked down Lallana's cross. Exeter had their moments in the first half, particularly when Jamie Cureton made a mess of a volley when unmarked and Liam Sercombe's powerful shot was tipped over by Saints' keeper Kelvin Davis. But Exeter could have been on the end of a much heavier beating as Southampton wasted second-half opportunities to further improve their goal difference.
