Bottom of the table Southampton entertain Swansea on Saturday, with rumours circulating about the security of Nigel Adkins job.

Adkins has endured a difficult start to his Premier League career, collecting just one win from their opening ten fixtures, with only four points and the worst defensive record in the division ensuring they remain at the foot of the table.

Swansea will be hoping to further their struggles, as they look to push into the top half of the table. Michael Laudrup enjoyed arguably his best week since taking charge of the Swans last week, overseeing a Capital One Cup win over Liverpool at Anfield, and then a commendable fight back against league leaders Chelsea which resulted in a 1-1 draw last weekend.

Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc is back in contention after an alleged incident in their last home game with Tottenham.

The Pole missed Monday’s defeat at West Brom following allegations he threw a bottle at home fans and swore at them, but Adkins says he is back in contention following the conclusion of a investigation.

Meanwhile Swansea are set to be without Spanish defender Chico Flores, who is struggling to overcome a dead leg.

Prediction: Southampton 2-3 Swansea
