PREM: Middlesbrough v Southampton preview

Middlesbrough v Southampton preview

Middlesbrough head coach Steve Agnew has no fresh injury problems as he prepares for Saturday's Premier League clash with Southampton.

Goalkeeper Victor Valdes (ribs), defender Daniel Ayala (ankle) and midfielder Gaston Ramirez (groin) remain doubts and are unlikely to feature for relegated Boro in their final home game of the campaign.

Skipper Grant Leadbitter returned from a three-game lay-off with a hamstring problem at Chelsea on Monday evening, while fellow midfielder Adlene Guedioura is close to following suit after recovering from a groin strain. 

Southampton have no fresh injury concerns ahead of their Premier League trip to Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Saints boss Claude Puel may make a number of changes due to a late-season fixture pile-up with the likes of Shane Long and Sofiane Boufal pushing for recalls.

There could be space in the squad for fit-again duo Charlie Austin and Matt Targett but Virgil van Dijk (ankle) and goalkeeper Alex McCarthy (hamstring) are out.


Middlesbrough (from): Guzan, Konstantopoulos, Barragan, Friend, Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Espinosa, Husband, Fry, De Roon, Clayton, Forshaw, Leadbitter, Guedioura, Downing, Stuani, Traore, Fischer, Negredo, Gestede, Bamford. 

Southampton (from): Forster, Hassan, Soares, Martina, Pied, Yoshida, Stephens, Targett, Caceres, Bertrand, McQueen, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Davis, Clasie, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Boufal, Redmond, Rodriguez, Long, Gabbiadini, Sims, Austin.
