Weston hopes for big home crowd

Chris Hutchings' in-form Saddlers lie just one point outside the top six after Tuesday's win at Yeovil and are unbeaten in their last five league games, while they have only lost once at the Banks's Stadium in the league all season.

Southampton's recent resurgence makes for a tight encounter and when combined with the 1,700-strong away following they are expected to bring at the weekend, Weston is hoping a bumper home crowd can make the crucial difference.

"It would be nice to think there will be a big crowd on Saturday," said the defender. "We've been doing really well of late and hopefully our recent performances will put a few more bums on seats.

"As players, all we can do is go out there and do our best. I think we have been doing that of late. There are many things that make up a football club but the most important thing is the supporters. I know players often say it but fans really can make a difference.

"I was on the bench for the Leeds home game earlier in the season. There were nearly 9,000 fans in the stadium and the noise was crazy. Being greedy, that is what you want every week but we know we won't always get that."
