The 17th-placed Saints climbed out of the bottom three on Sunday with an impressive 2-0 win at home over Newcastle.

It was a second successive Premier League victory for Nigel Adkins's side after their first away triumph of the season at strugglers Queen's Park Rangers.

Meanwhile, a contentious last-minute goal from Sebastian Bassong earned the Canaries a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Everton on Saturday.

Chris Hughton's men make the trip to Hampshire currently on a seven-game unbeaten run, with four of them wins.

However, the Norfolk outfit may have to do without the services of goalkeeper John Ruddy due to a thigh injury.

Russell Martin is available again following his recent back problem, but fellow defender Michael Turner is facing a couple of weeks on the recovery table with a shoulder injury.

For the Saints, Adkins and his management team will assess the availability of Frazer Richardson and Richard Chaplow.
