SAINTS are encouraging supporters to arrive at St Mary's early and bring the noise ahead of Friday evening’s playoff semi-final second leg against West Brom.

A 0-0 draw in the first leg at The Hawthorns leaves everything still to play for as both sides aim to reach the final at Wembley.

Baggies fans created an intimidating atmosphere at the home leg - something which manager Carlos Corberan admitted prevented them from losing the game.

Supporters are being encouraged to create an atmosphere and greet the players' arrival - with the team coach set to arrive at approximately 6.15pm.

A statement on the club's website adds: "The support this season has been brilliant, and now we’re asking supporters to take it up a level and bring the noise to be our 12th man for this important semi-final.

"We want the players to walk out to a sea of red and white as they arrive, as well as in the stands, so we encourage supporters to wear their colours.

"Whether it’s a new shirt or an old shirt, we’d love to see the Saints red and white army out in full force to make the most of an important second-leg home advantage."

Club legends Matt Le Tissier, James Beattie, Franny Benali, Mark Dennis, Nicky Banger, Glenn Cockerill and Peter Rodrigues will all be in attendance to cheer on Russell Martin’s men.

Some of those legends will be making a guest appearance talk as part of the club's matchday entertainment, something you won’t want to miss.

In the family zone, live music will be starting at 5pm and face painters will also be on hand for fans of all ages.

From 6.45pm Saints will have competitions, prize giveaways and an interview with the British long-distance runner and local lad Mahamed Mahamed.
