Burley ahead of Coventry

Burley ahead of Coventry

Saints gaffer George Burley has spoken ahead of the trip to Coventry.

He told the official site about injury doubts Surman and Wright:'We have a couple of doubts. I would think Drew should be OK but Jermaine is only 50-50.

He will travel and we will see how he is tomorrow but he has been tremendous in the last two games.'

He then mentioned Djamel Belmadi: 'It was a gamble to use him because he had been out for a long time and had not even had a Reserve game.

But he looked so sharp and so good in training that I decided to bring him off the bench and it was good to see him back in action.'

While finished discussing Southampton attacking options: 'Greg was rested because he has had a lot of games recently including internationals and I wanted to look at the partnership between Marek Saganowski and Kenwyne Jones.

Two big lads are sometimes not ideal but it is horses for courses and the good thing is I now have plenty of options.

'Bradley Wright-Phillips came on and did really well but I though Marek and Kenwyne combined well together.

Marek has good movement and likes to play off a big lad and he might well have scored with a couple of good opportunities.

'Kenwyne is bang in form with six goals in his last four games. He has power and strength and can certainly get a few more goals.'
