With Tottenham Hotspurs not in action until Sunday Alan Pardew men have the chance to continue their surge up the table and they could climb as high as fifth depending on results at Goodison Park between Everton and Fulham.
The North East side beat Manchester United on their own turf last time out and are currently on a run of just one defeat in their last 6 games.
The Magpies have won their last three home games with six goals and just two conceded but face a tough task against a Southampton side that stemmed a run of three league defeats with a 1-1 draw with Manchester City last time out.
The South Coast side are currently one place and three points below their hosts and given their impressive seasons so far Pardew is expecting an exciting clash.
“We’ve had a really strong period and it’s important we focus on this game” the former Southampton manager said.
“There is a huge significance in this result. Southampton are a good side, very similar to ourselves in that they are set up to attack, it should be a cracker.
“We didn’t slip up against Norwich and West Brom, and this is a game we’re really looking forward to.”
Newcastle will be without Yohan Cabaye following a fifth yellow card of the season against the Red Devils with Ryan Taylor the only absentee.
Southampton meanwhile have a number of players missing for the game with Nathaniel Clyne (hamstring), Victor Wanyama (leg), Artur Boruc (hand), Kelvin Davis (back), Danny Fox (hamstring) and Guly Do Prado (knee) all out.
Mauricio Pochettino is also sweating on the fitness of defensive midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin with the French man likely to start the game on the bench.
The Saints have a poor record in the north east winning just one of their last 10 games at St. James’ Park and Pochettino is expecting another tough game telling reporters “Newcastle are a team who have – in the last few weeks – been playing well.
“They are a physical, strong, aggressive side who are tough to beat. We are aware what we’re up against.”
