Southampton will check on striker Rickie Lambert ahead of the visit of Oldham.

Lambert required stitches after taking a nasty whack to the head against Huddersfield last Saturday but Saints are hopeful he will be fit.

Skipper Dean Hammond serves a one-match ban after collecting his fifth booking of the season at the weekend with France under-21 international Morgan Schneiderlin his likely replacement.

Frazer Richardson could finally be in line for his debut some four months after joining the club from Charlton.

Richardson suffered a dislocated shoulder in pre-season but has proved his fitness in the reserves and will push Danny Butterfield for the right-back slot.

Midfielder Paul Wotton is still sidelined with a back injury and striker David Connolly has a stomach problem.

Oldham boss Paul Dickov could name an unchanged side for the trip to face Saints.

Midfielder Andy Holdsworth, who would not have commanded a place in the starting line-up, is ruled out through a shin injury.

He had been complaining of pain in the last week, although scans have revealed no stress fracture as was feared.

The Latics this week released full-back Rodrigue Dikaba after less than two months at the club.

The 24-year-old defender, who played just twice for the Latics, was injured on international duty with DR Congo but failed to return to Boundary Park.

Dickov has no other new injury or suspension concerns but veteran defender Sean Gregan, 36, has joined Fleetwood Town on a three-month loan deal.
