West Bromwich Albion will have their sights set on securing a second win in four nights at The Hawthorns when Southampton come to town on Friday (ko 8pm).
The Baggies earned a comfortable 2-0 victory over Cardiff City on Tuesday thanks to goals from Mikey Johnston and Andi Weimann, a result which means Carlos Corberán's men head into this weekend's clash with the Saints on the back of five straight home league triumphs.
The visitors were beaten for the first time in any competition since September 23 on Tuesday night, falling to a 3-1 reverse at Bristol City.
It ended their 25-match unbeaten run and Russell Martin's men will be determined to respond in a positive manner in the West Midlands.
Saints secured all three points when the sides last met back in November, with Adam Armstrong scoring a late winner for the hosts after earlier goals from Will Smallbone and Kyle Bartley.
Supporters can listen to live audio commentary of the Baggies' showdown with the Saints.
Gez Mulholland and former Baggie Andy Johnson will provide live commentary from The Hawthorns, with coverage starting at 7.50pm.
Details for video streaming on WBA TV will be available here from Thursday afternoon onwards.
Supporters are kindly asked to direct any questions or complaints about WBA TV or WBA Radio to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regular updates will also be posted across the club's social media channels throughout the night.
Southampton slipped out of the automatic promotion places in midweek after suffering a first defeat in league and cup since late September.
Tuesday's 3-1 loss at Bristol City brought an end to their 25-match unbeaten run and allowed Leeds United to leapfrog them into second place - highlighting just how intense the race to reach the Premier League really is.
The Saints have played some exciting football in recent months and have scored plenty of goals too, bagging 24 in nine games in 2024.
Their main target is to shoot straight back up to the top flight having dropped out of England's elite division last season, and they're in the thick of an intriguing battle for that runners-up spot with both Leeds United and Ipswich Town as it stands.
Russell Martin, a former Scotland international defender who represented a number of clubs including Wycombe Wanderers, Norwich City and MK Dons among others, is the man tasked with achieving success at St Mary's Stadium.
The 38-year-old swapped Swansea City for Southampton in the summer and has a record of 21 victories, eight draws and just six defeats from his 35 fixtures at the helm.
