Clarke is impressed by Saints' summer market work.
‚ÄúSouthampton come here having invested heavily over the summer," the Scot told the WBA website. ‚ÄúThey‚Äôve boosted their squad after a brilliant first season back up.
‚ÄúThey were comfortable in the league from January onwards last year. It‚Äôs going to be a tough test for us.
‚ÄúI think you saw today that we look in good shape.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre looking forward to a good game.‚ÄĚ
