Phil Parkinson will be desperate to take all three points from his mentor, Alan Pardew. Charlton’s place in the play-offs is all but secured and they remain just a tantalising two points away from an automatic promotion place.
Pardew will be equally determined to put one over on his former employers so a fascinating contest is in prospect.
Southampton Team News:
Lethal front man, Rickie Lambert, will be hoping to add to his goal tally and will have a good supply source in the form of Jason Puncheon and Adam Lallana.
Player to watch: Rickie Lambert
Charlton Athletic Team News:
