Southampton goalkeeper Kelvin Davis believes the trip to Fulham on Boxing Day is the first of a number of winnable fixtures coming up for the south coast club.

Saints saw a mini revival abruptly ended by a 1-0 home defeat to Sunderland on Saturday, although they will spend Christmas outside the relegation zone. The loss also maintained a three-point gap between themselves and 16th-placed Aston Villa - something Davis is looking to close quickly, starting at Craven Cottage.

"In terms of Christmas, I think the games we've got are winnable," he told Press Association Sport, referring to the trip to Stoke and visit of Arsenal that follows. "We go into those games fully intending to set our stall out so we can win those games. That's what we'll ask of ourselves."
