Southampton host Preston North End in the Championship on Tuesday night, with Russell Martin's side hoping to close the gap between themselves and the automatic promotion spots.


The Saints, who come into Tuesday's clash on the back of their 3-2 victory against Watford on Saturday afternoon thanks to Flynn Downes's 99th-minute winner, are just six points off Leeds in third - however, Southampton boast two games in hand.

Ipswich, Leicester and Leeds were the three teams fighting for the two automatic promotion spots, but if Southampton win their two games in hand, they'll be level on points with Daniel Farke's side in third and just two points off top.

Southampton will be desperate to finish in the top two to secure instant promotion back to the Premier League, otherwise they'll have to settle for the lottery of the play-offs.

Preston, meanwhile, are 10th in the table with four games remaining. They're eight points off the play-offs and they need a few things to swing in their favour if they are to force their way into the top six.
