Saints Get Extra Couple Of Days Off After Wolves Game Moved
Saturday, 14th Nov 2020 08:52

Saints played the first fixture of the weekend before the International break and now they will play the last in the weekend after, with the trip to Wolves being put back to the Monday evening.

Saints will now travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday 23rd November with the 8pm kick off set to be shown on Sky Sports.

This means they will be the last fixture of the weekend , so unlike the game against Everton ahead of the International break, they will not get the chance to regain the top spot ahead of their rivals playing.

One person who is unlikely to play though is Danny Ings, there is no concrete news out of St Mary's, but it seems that he is expected to return at some point in December.

But it does give Saints a little extra time to get those fit who missed the Everton fixture, Ryan Bertrand will benefit from a little extra recovery time as will his understudy Jake Vokins who played for the B side last week and will be able to continue building up his strength a little longer should Bertrand not pass muster.

Likewise James Ward Prowse, he was taken out of the England squad as a precaution with a hamstring issue, two extra days will be welcomed for him by the Saints medical team.

The final game before the international break was against Newcastle not Everton. That’s not a Friday night to forget!

The couple of days extra rest will benefit Wolves far more than us. We only have a handful of players away on international duty, whereas Wolves have a well publicised 14 players - some of whom will have to recover from travelling thousands of miles.

.....at least it is on Sky, as opposed to PPV. Hopefully we can replicate or better our result there last season, which seems such a long long time ago !!
