Southampton manager Nigel Adkins hopes to name an unchanged starting line-up for the visit of leaders Brighton.

Saints were in fine form as they thrashed Peterborough 4-1 on Saturday and suffered no fresh injuries.

Ryan Dickson looks set to keep his place at left-back after being preferred to Dan Harding, who was left out of the squad completely after last weekend's defeat at Carlisle.

Danny Butterfield returned to the bench on Saturday after a calf injury and will be among the substitutes again with Frazer Richardson now holding down the right-back slot.

Young winger Oscar Gobern is fit after a long-term hip injury so Adkins has a full-strength squad at his disposal as Saints look for a seventh straight home win.

Brighton captain Gordon Greer has been passed fit for the trip to Southampton.

The defender had to be substituted during Saturday's 2-2 draw against Bristol Rovers through illness but he will make the trip along the south coast.

The Seagulls will be without Greer's fellow centre-half Tommy Elphick, who is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season at the weekend.

Liam Bridcutt serves the final game of his three-match ban, Matt Sparrow is still missing with a groin injury and Alan Navarro continues his recovery from cruciate ligament damage.

Assistant manager Mauricio Taricco could be added to the bench after serving a one-match ban against Rovers following his red card in the FA Cup replay at Woking.
