On Wednesday, Southampton will face Grimsby Town in the FA Cup fifth round in an effort to establish some consistency under new head coach Ruben Selles. The Saints are currently last in the Premier League standings, and Grimsby is currently sixteenth in League Two. Grimsby is definitely sensing another upset in this competition.
Southampton’s fans anticipated their team to play similarly when they visited Leeds United last weekend after such an impressive victory at Chelsea. However, the Saints put on a performance more in accordance with Nathan Jones’ rule as their relegation-threatened opponents won at Elland Road by a score of 1-0.
Selles’s team is currently four points outside of safety as a result, but the Spaniard will see this game as a helpful diversion as he tries to instill some confidence in his group. Notwithstanding the understandable annoyance at Saint Mary’s, Southampton has triumphed in five of their last 11 games overall. Selles will insist for a bigger win on Wednesday night after two 2-1 wins in the FA Cup against Crystal Palace and Blackpool, respectively.
