Thoughts now turn to the Cup after a busy Premiership programme and, for us, it is a return to the scene of our most recent encounter. Ledley says the team are determined to return from the South Coast this time with a positive result in the bag and a place in the fourth round of the Cup.
"Definitely," he said. "It would be nice to have a few more days before the game but we are looking forward to it.
"We knew what to expect coming into the league game and I think it will be more of the same at the weekend.
"We are definitely up for it.
"We created enough chances on Wednesday and if we'd have gone a goal up I'm sure we would have won the game."
One such chance fell to Ledley when he rose to meet a corner and his glancing header just drifted past the face of the goal. He feels he is due a change of luck on the scoring front.
"I can't score at all at the moment and need a goal. I haven't scored for about a year now so it would be nice."
Ledley King is relishing the prospect of an immediate FA Cup return to Southampton on Saturday but admits he would rather it were a few days later.
