The Saints secured a last-gasp victory over Watford at the weekend, while the Lilywhites were narrowly beaten at Deepdale by a resurgent Norwich City side.

Finding themselves with a two-goal lead after 20 minutes following goals from William Smallbone and Che Adams on Saturday against Watford, Southampton fans can be forgiven for thinking that a 24th win of the Championship season was going to be a breeze for the remainder of the game.

However, Watford were able to produce a double sting either side of the break to equalise through Ryan Porteous and Ismael Kone, although the Saints secured a much-needed win in added-on time, with Flynn Downes scoring his second of the league season.

With Ipswich Town, Leicester City and Leeds United all dropping points over the weekend, Russell Martin’s side are beginning to rejoin the picture in terms of automatic promotion, with Southampton currently eight points behind first-placed Tractor Boys having played two games fewer.

Since a run of three straight defeats across the Championship and the FA Cup rounded off February on a sour note, Southampton have tasted defeat in just one of their last seven league matches, including home wins over Sunderland, Coventry City and Watford.

Preston’s chances of acieving a top-six finish are all but over following a narrow 1-0 defeat to playoff rivals Norwich at Deepdale on Saturday, when the Lilywhites were unable to secure any point from the side who could very well end up in sixth place by the final kick on May 4.

Last Tuesday’s 4-1 home victory over relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town would have given Preston plenty of confidence heading into the Norwich game, but David Wagner’s East Anglians were a completely different kettle of fish compared to the struggling Terriers, and Gabriel Sara’s 86th-minute strike sealed all the points for the Canaries.

Heading into the final four matches of their campaign, Ryan Lowe’s side are currently occupying 10th position in the Championship standings, eight points behind sixth-placed Norwich, meaning that a near-flawless run from Preston is now required to place inside the top six.
