Southampton’s trip to Doncaster gives the Saints the perfect opportunity to start replicating their home form on their travels.
Nigel Adkins’ team have a perfect record at St Mary’s, recording ten wins from ten, scoring 26 goals and conceding just six.
But away from home it is a different story, with the Saints earning just three wins in nine attempts.
Nevertheless, their overall points haul is enough to leave them two points clear at the top of the table, contrasting starkly with the fortunes of their next opponents.
Dean Saunders’ men are not only bottom of the table but they also have the worst home record out of the Championship’s 24 teams.
As such, Southampton go into the match as odds-on favourites to secure all three points in bwin’s 3Way football betting market despite having only picked up one win in their last seven matches on their travels.
The Saints are priced at 7/10 to earn victory, leaving a Doncaster success at 15/4 and a draw priced at 5/2.
Not only are Southampton likely to secure the win, but they could also be good bets to be winning at half time and full time.
The south coast outfit have only been ahead at half time in three of their nine away matches so far this season.
However, in their last 20 games home and away they have been in front at the interval before going on to win 11 times, making it their most frequent half time/full time result.
Meanwhile, Doncaster have been behind at the break before going on to lose in eight of their last 20 games – and have been behind after 45 minutes in seven of their nine home league games this season.
This suggests Southampton are well placed to establish an early advantage, making a Southampton/Southampton half time/full time bet a good one at odds of 31/20.

Nevertheless, don’t expect too many goals – despite being the highest scorers in the league, four of the last five Southampton games on the road have featured fewer than three goals.
This makes a Southampton win with under 2.5 goals another bet worth considering, with this option also available at odds of 31/20.
