Parry expecting stern Saints test

Alan Pardew's men thumped Walsall 5-1 at home last weekend before slaying Huddersfield in a 5-0 success at St Mary's on Tuesday.

Saints have emerged as one the division's form teams but Parry believes his men will raise their game against the fallen south coast giants.

Parry said: "Southampton had a really impressive win in the week and anyone who can put five past Huddersfield are a half-decent side.

"They are the form team at the moment but I hope Southampton's form will focus our lads because they'll know that if we're not on our game then we'll be in trouble.

"But, like most sides around the bottom, they do tend to raise their game against the better sides and I'm hoping we do that on Saturday."
