Having beaten Hull in all five of their previous meetings since 2008, Southampton will be hoping for the same outcome when the teams meet at St Marys on Saturday.

Hull go into the game in poor form. The tigers haven’t won since February and despite looking relativity safe mid-season, they are now a major contender for the drop.

The visitors will be without Nikica Jelavic for the remainder of the run-in and will miss his goal-scoring presence on Saturday, whilst Southampton are still without long-term absentee Fraser Forster.

KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3:00pm
