The 20-year-old was forced to miss the goalless draw with Wycombe on Tuesday night with a knee injury but is close to regaining fitness.

However Saints are likely to once again be without striker David Connolly, who continues to struggle with a groin problem.

The veteran frontman, who has been sidelined since December, was expected to return this weekend but that now appears unlikely.

Defender Lloyd James has missed the last two games and could be on the sidelines once again.

Midfielder Jason Puncheon, who joined from Plymouth at the end of the January transfer window, is poised to make his home debut.
