The league leaders travel to the Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon to try and extend their lead at the top.

The Saints are on the back of a 1-0 victory over second place West Ham – and Nigel Adkins’ men have an opportunity to get an eight point lead over the Hammers.


Adam Lallana could feature for the Saints after missing the last two games with a foot injury.

Striker Lee Barnard could also be included in the squad after returning to full training.

Meanwhile, defender Radhi Jaidi remains out after undergoing knee surgery.


Midfielder Jimmy Kebe is expected to return for the Royals after successfully coming back from a knee problem.
