Wednesday have struggled at home but have managed to notch up a couple of away wins lately.

Vital Quotes:

Southampton Team News:

Schneiderlin is still out but Guly and Bialkowski are both doing well with their fight to recover full fitness.

eaborne came on as a sub last time out and could be pushing for a start. Dickson could make the bench as cover for the midfield if Guly and Schneiderlin are deemed not yet ready.

Adam has had a fantastic season so far and will relish the chance to play at home again after so many away games recently. Potter is also looking to get a start.
