Recent respective form guides
Southampton's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Saints have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.
Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. The Bluebirds's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.
Southampton are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 31 points from their 33 games thus far. Cardiff City are just outside the promotion places, in 4th, having taken 53 points from 31 games.
