David Prutton completed 90 minutes against Eastleigh last night, but Saints failed to beat the Confrence South side for the second time this season.
Despite controlling large parts of the game Saints lost the game 1-0 after a fluke goal by Martin Beck. The ball sailed over young pole Bartosz Bialkowski in a David Seaman-esque style.
Despite the result Saints fans will be encouraged that another of the 'old guard' is now returning to fitness after a long lay off.
Prutton's return will add competition to a midfield where Saints already have a lot of personnel.
Jermaine Wright, Jhon Viafara, Inigo Idiakez, Drew Surman, Mario Licka and now Prutton will all be vying for a place in the midfield.
