Southampton vs. Derby County

St Mary's Stadium

Sat 18th Feb 2012


Southampton v Derby County

After playing three of the top four clubs and a Burnley side that are doing well away without defeat Saints will be looking to claim the three points.

Draws with West Ham, Birmingham and Cardiff allied to the win at home to Burnley have raised our hopes that the team has regained it's form in time for the end of season run-in.

Vital Quotes:

Southampton Team News:

Frazer Richardson may be unavailable after picking up a knock against West Ham. Butterfield and Seaborne are out long term.

Player to watch: Billy Sharp

Billy looked lively against the Hammers and was a shade unlucky not to score.

Derby County Team News:

Midfielder Craig Bryson and defender Gareth Roberts are both doubts - but John Brayford could return for the Rams.

Bryson came off at half-time in Tuesday night's 1-0 home defeat to Reading with a heel problem, while left-back Roberts suffered a leg injury in the closing minutes.

Player to watch: Frank Fielding

Frank will need to be on form to keep the high scoring Saints attack at bay.
