Saints Injury News For Trip To West Ham
Thursday, 27th Feb 2020 15:12

Saints have some good and bad news for the trip to the London Stadium to take on West Ham United on Saturday.

The good news is that Kyle Walker-Peters is back in training and should be fit to face the Hammers, but it is not good news for Nathan Redmond who will miss this game and probably at least the following three with the injury that has kept him out of the last two games, although with a two week break at then end of March it gives him a little extra time to recover without missing a game.

Ralph gave this update in this afternoon's press conference.

"So far it looks good," Hasenhüttl revealed, when asked about his squad selection. "Reddie is still out, so it will take maybe a little longer. But Walker-Peters is back in training.

"He's trained well this week. That's one more option we have.

"Redmond will take time, I think about one month. Hopefully not longer. Maybe after the international break he can play again, that is the schedule at the moment."

This means that Saints have an extra man in the squad from last week and it looks like Kyle Walker-Peters could return at left back to add some pace on that side of the field allowing James Ward Prowse to return to the centre of the park.

Think you mean right back. Personally I would prefer JWP to stay there. He provides some consistensy we badly need. KWP looked better as the game went on but JWP is better and Smallbone looked good so keep him on!

I agree with... taxi driver....above, but if we are going to test KWP at RB he has to play at RB sometime and this game maybe less demanding than the next three / four upcoming.

I think we may see more of Adams this weekend and if KWP does start, we may have JWP back in midfield and have Will Smallbone on the bench until 2nd half.
....BUT then again remember the old adage.. never change a winning side.

Thought JWP has been great at RB. Excellent season for him.
