Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in Southampton’s last five home games.
  • Both teams have scored in three of the last four Coventry City away games.
  • Southampton have not lost any of their last six home FA Cup ties over 90 mins (Won 4, Drawn 2).

Sky Blues can score at St Mary’s stronghold

Southampton are short with the oddsmakers to get past Coventry in Saturday’s FA Cup fourth round clash, but there will be some awkward moments before the Saints go marching in.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have lost only once at home in the Premier League this season and are unbeaten in their last eight at St Mary’s, but rarely keep clean sheets on their own patch any more. The three they have managed this season came early on and Saints have allowed their opponents to score in all five of their home games since the start of December.

Coventry have the firepower – if Gyokeres plays

This suggests Saturday’s tie has strong possibilities of being a ‘both teams to score’ affair. The Sky Blues were shut out for the first time this year when they went down 1-0 at Middlesbrough last week, although they were doing plenty of pressing for the opener themselves when Boro’s substitutions paid off.

Mark Robins’ men set up well away from home – as their record of two wins, three draws and only one defeat in their last six Championship aways suggests. Coventry have seen both teams score in three of the last four away games and – as long as they don’t rest leading striker Viktor Gyokeres on the south coast – should oblige again in this respect.

St Mary’s, where both teams have scored in the last five games, has become a real stronghold for Southampton in FA Cup ties with the hosts unbeaten in 90 minutes in their last six there. That’s a big part of our correct score play reasoning that Hasenhuttl’s men make it into the fifth round draw after a 2-1 success this Saturday.
