Southampton are likely to be unchanged when they travel to Sheffield Wednesday.
The Saints are on the back of a vital 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace, which keeps the Hampshire side's survival hopes alive.
Mark Wotte's side are just two points off safety with just three games left.
A win tomorrow could take the Saints out of the bottom three at this crucial period of the season.

'The boys showed 100 per cent commitment and are fighting for their lives,' he said.
'The players do not deserve to go down and nor do the supporters.
'We are two points from safety with three games to go and we still have Nottingham Forest to play so it is in our own hands. Three wins will keep us up.
'We go to Sheffield Wednesday next weekend and I am not scared of going there because our away form is very good.'
Akpo Sodje is likely to miss out due to a recurring hamstring injury.
Brian Laws may make some changes after the disappointing 3-2 defeat at Q.P.R, by bringing in Frank Simek who didn't travel to West London.
Luke Varney will play his last match for the Owls, before returning back to Derby County as his loan will run out.
With 14 league goals this season, Tudgay is arguably the Owls player of the season.
The 26-year-old scored from the spot on Monday, and notched the late equalizer in the reverse fixture at St. Mary's.
Mark Wotte is likely to keep Bradley Wright-Phillips and Jason Euell up top, with goal scorer on Monday, David McGoldrick remaining just behind the strikers.
Saints are still without long term absentees: Simon Gillett (knee), Wayne Thomas (knee) and Anthony Pulis (foot).
Having scored his 13th goal of the season on Monday, the 21-year-old is the one to watch if the Saints are to avoid the drop.
The Owls have the edge, having won 28 compared to Southampton's 20 in the 69 matches the two sides have played.
Mr. Robert Shoebridge (Derbyshire)
Sheffield Wednesday 0 - 2 Southampton. Wednesday have nothing to play for, and the Saints are fighting for their lives. Goals from Jason Euell and David McGoldrick will bring the three points home.
Last two games:
Burnley (H) 25th April
Nottingham Forest (A) 3rd May
