Sean Gregan believes Oldham Athletic will be facing a 'good test' of their ability when playing Southampton on Saturday.
The Latics have won three and drawn two of their last five League One outings, despite a tough run of games which saw them face MK Dons and Charlton.
Southampton are struggling at the bottom of the table but Gregan believes they will pose a strong challenge.
"They've gone out and spent a million on Ricky Lambert and that's what you're up against," said Gregan.
"They're on a good run of form and should bring a fair few fans so it should be good, a good test for us."
