After their 25-match unbeaten run came to an abrupt end at Bristol City three days earlier, Southampton travelled to The Hawthorns on Friday night looking to flex their powers of recovery, and in the end it was a comfortable evening against a West Brom side who look set for a top-six finish.

Unlike the vast majority of visitors to the Baggies’ Black Country home, Russell Martin’s Saints dominated the ball and, crucially, breached the net of Alex Palmer, with goals either side of the half-time whistle from Ryan Fraser and substitute David Brooks securing a massive win on the road.

With Leeds United doing the business at Plymouth Argyle’s Home Park a day later, Southampton remain in third place after the weekend’s round of second-tier action, but Martin’s men have played a game fewer, with Tuesday night presenting the South Coast club to join league leaders Leicester City in the automatic-promotion spots.

Always a threat at this level, former Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers marksman Adam Armstrong is leading the club’s Golden Boot race with 16 goals in 32 Championship appearances – no player in the division can match the nippy forward’s 27 goal contributions so far in 2023-24.

Southampton have 11-straight matches at their St Mary’s base across the Championship and the FA Cup since the start of October, with League One-bound Rotherham United the last side to deny the Saints a victory on the South Coast, with Jordan Hugill’s second-half equaliser cancelling out Armstrong’s second-minute strike.

Hull are within striking distance of the top six after a Jacob Greaves brace fired them to a 2-1 success over Andre Breitenreiter’s Huddersfield at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with the defender’s second strike sealing maximum points in the 94th minute.

Six points from an available six against Leam Richardson’s Rotherham and the Terriers over the past week was an expectation for a Tigers side packed with quality following their eye-catching January window, in which Fabio Carvalho and Anass Zaroury arrived from Liverpool and Burnley respectively.

Throw former Aston Villa man Jaden Philogene into the mix and Hull are a different beast from the one Liam Rosenior inherited when he took charge of the Humberside club, with the immediate ambition a return to the Premier League via the playoffs after seven years in the Football League.

The Tigers are level on points with sixth-placed Coventry City and David Wagner’s Norwich City in seventh after four wins from their last five in the Championship, and maximum points at St Mary’s on Tuesday could be enough to fire Hull into fifth, dependent on how West Brom fare at Plymouth Argyle on the same night.

Five of Hull’s next six second-tier fixtures are against side currently occupying positions in the top nine of the division, meaning the build up to the Easter weekend at the end of March could prove pivotal in deciding whether a highly-talented XI can actualise the dreams of a loyal fanbase.
