The Saints aim for the top two spots in the EFL Championship

Southampton will lock horns with Preston North End at St Mary’s Stadium. Currently, the home team is placed fourth in the points table of the EFL Championship with 78 points. They are having a good season and will be looking to get a promotion to the Premier League. They have surely suffered some defeats in their previous match but still are a tough opposition to beat.

On the other hand, Preston North End are placed 8th in the points table with 63 points, they are 15 points behind their opposition. Southampton are surely the favourites to win this fixture but the away team can surprise them and they are very much capable of doing so. This match is going to be exciting to watch as two quality teams are going to face off against each other.

Players to Watch

Adam Armstrong (Southampton)

Armstrong is a player who is blessed with good physicality. He can sprint and accelerate in an instant to escape from his opponents. Armstrong also has a very good mentality, he always shows up during deficits. Armstrong’s runs from deep are very clever. He rarely stays on the shoulder of the defence as that limits space to run and accelerate. Armstrong is a very hard-working player. He would press the opposition all the way to disrupt their tempo.

Emil Riis Jakobsen (Preston North End)

He is a player who likes to stay upfront and acts like a poacher, due to this he often gets isolated but still he has a lot of qualities and quite often he punishes the opposition team with his goal-scoring prowess. Changing direction quickly is his biggest strength and his physicality helps him to deal with opposition defenders very well.
