Southampton are currently rooted to the foot of the Premier League table, but on Wednesday night, their relegation concerns move to the back-burner as recently-appointed Ruben Selles looks to navigate a potential banana skin tie against League Two Grimsby Town — with an FA Cup quarter-final slot up for grabs.

Selles — who was appointed in the summer to assist Ralph Hasenhuttl — was recently named the permanent boss of The Saints following the dismissal of Nathan Jones. The 39-year-old Spaniard oversaw a 1-0 win against Chelsea during his caretaker stint, and has subsequently been given the No. 1 berth permanently.

Under Jones, the South Coast club knocked out Crystal Palace and Blackpool in the third and fourth round respectively, and now face fourth-tier Grimsby. Paul Hurst’s Mariners have taken down Plymouth Argyle, Cambridge United, Burton Albion and Luton Town to reach this stage. This will be their biggest test yet.

Southampton vs Grimsby match stats

It probably says a lot about Southampton’s current plight that left-back Romain Perraud is their third-highest scorer this season in all competitions with four goals. Two of those have come in the FA Cup, making the Frenchman their top goal-getter in this competition, with a brace against Blackpool in the previous round.

As well as being Southampton’s captain and highest scorer in the Premier League, James Ward-Prowse has also been doing the business in the FA Cup. The midfield difference-maker bagged in the third round against Crystal Palace, and will fancy his chances of getting Southampton to another quarter-final in a domestic cup this season — following their League Cup semi-final run.

It was the third meeting of that round in just nine days, following 0-0s in the first two games, before Southampton romped to a 4-1 triumph, before going out to Bristol Rovers the next game.
