Southampton V Shrewsbury To Be Played Next Tuesday
Wednesday, 13th Jan 2021 22:27

Southampton's FA Cup third-round tie at home to Shrewsbury has been rescheduled for Tuesday, 19 January, after it was agreed that Saints fixture against Leeds United would be postponed

The match was initially due to be played last Saturday at St Mary's, but was postponed after a number of positive Covid-19 tests at the League One club.

There is still some questions as to whether the fixture next Tuesday will be able to go ahead with Shrewsbury's home game against Lincoln City on Saturday already postponed.

That will mean that the Shrew's will not have played a game since 29th December if they meet Saints next Tuesday.

In truth the postponement on Saturday suited Saints who would have had several injury issues, indeed it could also be to our advantage to take a difficult fixture against Leeds out of the calendar , so soon after the trip to Leicester and it will give us the opportunity to get some of our injury list fit again.

The winner will host Arsenal in the fourth round, due to take place on the weekend of 23-24 January.

Southampton's Premier League visit to Leeds on 20 January will be moved, with a new date to be announced.

The Premier League said any future FA Cup rescheduling decisions involving Premier League teams would be "assessed on a case-by-case basis".

Aside from this re-arranged FA Cup fixture..where a win would give us a 4th round home tie v. Arsenal, it's intersting to note that we have a scheduled Prem. home fixture versus .... ..(YES) ...Arsenal already planned for 26th January.
Think we might get to know them a bit by then (!)
