Southampton prepare to entertain Brentford at St. Marys on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Saints are clearly on top, having won 10 and lost only 3 of the 19 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at St. Marys was just last season, in August 2009, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League One match.
