Saturday could be a pivotal moment in the seasons of basement clubs Queens Park Rangers and Southampton who go head to head at Loftus Road.
Both managers, Mark Hughes and Nigel Adkins, find themselves increasingly under pressure, with their sides occupying 20th and 19th position respectively.
Rangers are currently in the midst of what is their joint worst start to a season in the top flight, the current record of four draws and seven losses being equal to that of their start in the 1968-69 season.
The west London side will, however, be boosted by the return of defender Fabio, who has been out for two months with a hamstring injury.
Captain Park Ji-sung is expected to remain sidelined with a knee concern, but there could be possible return for Kieron Dyer and Ryan Nelsen.
Injured pair Frazer Richardson and Richard Chaplow will miss the game for the visitors.
