Manager: Nigel Adkins
Star man: Rickie Lambert - He's been a goal machine since joining three years ago and his tally of 27 last season helped his side to promotion. Getting past Premier League defences, however, is a different matter.
How they rate: It's been seven years since Saints were in the top flight but a sensible rebuilding process has gone on and it looks a steady ship under Adkins. The squad, though, lacks Premier League experience.
Our prediction: 18th
