Southampton striker Rickie Lambert is relishing the FA Cup derby clash with local rivals Portsmouth.
League One Saints face Pompey at St Mary's on Saturday in the fifth round.
Lambert only joined Southampton in the summer so has never tasted a South Coast derby, but he cannot wait for the chance.
"It will be more hostile and intense," Lambert told Sky Sports News.
"Obviously there is hatred between the fans but I love that sort of atmosphere, it drives people on and they have told us how important it is to them.
"It is brilliant we are at home, the support we are going to have will drive us on, but it is for them also and it will be interesting."
