Final warm-up game ahead of Premier League as Saints take on Udinese

Daily Echo: Jay Rodriguez in action against Bristol City Jay Rodriguez in action against Bristol City

SAINTS have one last opportunity to sharpen themselves up for the Premier League season when they host Udinese tomorrow night.

The Italian side, who will feature in this year’s Champions League, promise to provide the sort of stern test that Nigel Adkins will be hoping for in the final friendly of the summer.

As he did on Tuesday at Bristol City, the Saints boss is likely to field a lineup that closely resembles his current first-choice team.

While he might not wish to tip his hand completely ahead of next weekend’s opener at Manchester City, it is likely Adkins will want to give his key players a chance to further acclimatise to the new formation they are being asked to play this season.

In midweek, there were some signs that they are becoming more comfortable with the change from a fluid 4- 4-2 into what is now more of a 4-3-3, with three central midfielders and two wide players supporting a lone striker.

As the squad stands, there appear to be few positions where there is much debate.

Kelvin Davis remains the number one keeper, while Nathaniel Clyne, Jose Fonte , Jos Hooiveld and Danny Fox are the preferred personnel in the back four for now.

In midfield, Adam Lallana is playing centrally, with Morgan Schneiderlin and Steven Davis likely to occupy the spots alongside him, at least while Jack Cork is absent anyway.

In the wide positions that are designed to support lone frontman Rickie Lambert , Jay Rodriguez, right, seems to be favoured on the left-hand side, while the opposite flank is slightly less clear.

Guly do Prado and Jason Puncheon have both operated there, with the Brazilian likely to be favourite for the nod.

Billy Sharp is also pushing for a role somewhere after an impressive pre-season.

However successful tomorrow’s test run goes, it is will be played out in front of a very different atmosphere to the one Saints will face on August 19.

Attendances at the club’s home pre-season games have been noticeably low this summer – a problem that could be exacerbated for Udinese by a late weekend kick-off and the final night of action in the Olympic Games.

Aren't Udinese one of the Italian sides who have been repeatedly been involved in accusations of match-fixing and betting scams? They'll make ideal opponents for you. I've put my money on a 12-12 draw, with the first throw in after 0.1 seconds.

As there are a lot of football mad italians living in the local area the attendance could be very good, 2000 or even 2500 for a optomistic guess.

What, at £20 for a ticket, when the Olympics 5000 metres final is on TV? That's a very generous estimate for the attendance.

Also Tom Daley is in the diving final that same evening. Why pay good money to watch "fatter, lower, slower" Lambert diving about in the penalty area, when you can watch Daey diving in the Olympic Games free of charge?

What, at £20 for a ticket, when the Olympics 5000 metres final is on TV? That's a very generous estimate for the attendance.
I thought it was a £1 a ticket so i will revise down to possibly 1000 at a push
Also Tom Daley is in the diving final that same evening. Why pay good money to watch "fatter, lower, slower" Lambert diving about in the penalty area, when you can watch Daey diving in the Olympic Games free of charge?
He barely qualified, not much chance of a medal unless he make a rapid improvement. Not worth waiting for this time, much better to watch a really good team in action at St. Marys, or the Saints if that is what you fancy!

Aren't Udinese one of the Italian sides who have been repeatedly been involved in accusations of match-fixing and betting scams? They'll make ideal opponents for you. I've put my money on a 12-12 draw, with the first throw in after 0.1 seconds.
Well you and your cronies are experts on the subject so we will take as read, not.

Sorry Angus! The site had been infested with trolls all day and I jumped to the conclusion that your post was some sort of tasteless wind-up.

I went to a circus in pompey once,fully vaccinated I hasten to add, it was rubbish,there was some old slapper doing a trick with a courgette,some bloke juggling sparrows and the clowns were all dressed in pompey shirts kicking exploding footballs,
I left when the dancing prawns came out.
Never again the worst 20p Ive ever spent.

I love the fact that the first few posts were just fishy skunts (thanks Angus). Shows what sad muppets they are.

Onto more important things, Angus quite rightly paid homage to our late great owner, Markus, may we never forget and appreciate what you have done for our club.

I think I went to that. I called a taxi to pick us up and a horse drawn caravan arrived. Needless to say I refused the lift and escaped from there as quickly as possible. It reminded me of one of those strange towns that you often read about in a Stephen king novel.

Where is the report of the game? There were no supporters there, surely not all the Echo reporters were at home watching the Olympics as well?

Ah, here's a report on the club website:
"The goals aside, Nigel Adkins’ men enjoyed a large percentage of possession".
The assassination aside, Mrs Lincoln, what did you think of the play?
