Sports Mole previews Saturday's Premier League meeting between Swansea City and Southampton.

Swansea City will be looking to end a run of four games without a victory when they host Southampton at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Swans have not won a league game since their 1-0 success over Newcastle United on March 2.

Southampton travel to South Wales unbeaten in their last five matches, a run which has eased their relegation fears. Last Saturday's 1-1 draw with West Ham United moved the Saints up to 12th place, seven points clear of the bottom three.

Swansea, who sit three points ahead of the visitors in ninth place, were last in action two weeks ago when they drew 2-2 at Norwich City.

Swans boss Michael Laudrup could name the same side that drew at Carrow Road, which would see Luke Moore retain his starting place up front.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino may pick the same XI that faced West Ham, although Jay Rodriguez is in contention to start in attack.
