PREVIEW: Sky Blues host Southampton at the Coventry Building Society Arena

Russell Martin's Southampton arrive in CV6...

12 December 2023

The Sky Blues host Southampton in their final fixture before Christmas at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Meet The Saints...

After an 11 year stay in the Premier League, Southampton were relegated back to the Championship for the 2023/24 season.

The Saints entered the new season with a new man at the helm, as they appointed former Swansea City boss Russell Martin as the man to guide them back to the top flight.

Southampton saw high-profile departures in the form of captain James Ward-Prowse, Romeo Lavia, Nathan Tella and Tino Livaramento.

However, Martin was able to keep together a bulk of the squad that had been relegated, adding Ryan Manning, Ross Stewart and Zach Awe to his ranks.

A positve start to the season was almost undone by a run of four straight defeats in September, but since then Southampton have remained unbeaten and come into the game 4th in the Championship.

Officials:

The EFL have confirmed that Ben Toner will be the man in the middle against Southampton at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Toner last took charge of a Sky Blues fixture when City came up against Southampton's Under-21s in an EFL Trophy 3-2 victory back in 2019.

He will be assisted by George Byrne and Sam Lewis, whilst Josh Smith will act as fourth official.
