Saints travel north tonight on the back of a ten match unbeaten run. Hull are fighting for a play-off spot so I can see this being another tough game for the Saintsw.
Hull City Team News:
Midfielder Corry Evans is doubtful for the Tigers due to a minor hamstring injury. He was replaced at half-time during Saturday’s game and replaced by Tom Cairney, who will continue if Evans misses out.
Winger Robbie Brady could also start after overcoming injury, whilst striker Matty Fryatt is another player hoping for a recall after starting the last two games on the bench.
Player to watch: Matty Fryatt
Matty has sat out the last two games and will be thirsting for a big display.
Southampton Team News:
Tadanari Lee is likely to be unavailable to Nigel Adkins as he recovers from a foot knock. Steve De Ridder and Billy Sharp will each be pushing for a starting berth
Player to watch: Adam Lallana
His natural skills will be needed to help unlock the Tiger’s defence.
