Southampton V Brentford Rearranged
Sunday, 2nd Jan 2022 09:08

Saints have wasted no time in rearranging the fixture postponed in December due to a Covid outbreak in the Brentford squad, for a game that could be pivotal in both team's seasons.

Brentford will now visit on Tuesday 11th January 2022, with kick-off at 7.45pm, this could be good news for Saints who could see suspensions for Kyle Walker Peters & Mohammed Salisu served a few days earlier in the FA Cup trip to Swansea.

But with defeats for both Watford & Crystal Palace on January 1st, this could see both sides have a great opportunity to pull themselves up the league and away from the relegation zone should they take all three points.

Saints will be hoping that they can do just that, although before this game takes place Brentford host Aston Villa and could take a big step to safety before they visit Saints.

For the past couple of seasons “totting up” suspensions apply to the same competition, so KWP will sadly miss the next PL game.

I think you are right here, KWP is suspended due to the totting up system, so will serve his ban in the League, but Salisu is banned due to two yellow cards adding up to a red, which if i read the rules correctly means he served the ban for the red card and misses the Swansea game

Injuries / Covid permitting... it may mean we have another chance for Valery and Perraud to get more Prem. time v. Brentford and / or Wolves (a).. and see if they really are the real deal in their respective defensive roles.
