Southampton and West Ham seek seasonal surge in top-of-the-table clash

On the face of it tonight's match between Southampton and West Ham at St Mary's represents a collision of the mutually buoyant: it is the biggest game in the Championship so far this season, a meeting of first and second in the table and a chance for two clubs with a genuine (and in West Ham's case rather desperate) hunger for promotion to gouge an early-season lump out of each other's ambitions of setting up a decisive autumnal surge away from the chasing pack.
