Hughes Confirms Injured Trio Will Be Fit For Brighton Game
Thursday, 13th Sep 2018 09:48
Mark Hughes has suggested that he will have a full squad to pick from when his team play Brighton And Hove Albion on Monday evening at St Mary's.
The Saints boss has said that the trio of Jan Bednarek, Charlie Austin and Shane Long are all expected to be fit for the clash against Brighton on Monday night.
“Touch wood no injuries from the internationals as far as we know Jan Bednarek is managing a minor ongoing foot problem, but that won’t rule him out. Charlie Austin with a hamstring complaint and Shane Long should also re-join the group.”
Good news for Saints as a squad, but Hughes now has the problem of deciding just who should start against Brighton and just as importantly who should be on the bench.
Those at Crystal Palace to watch the last game would put a good case forward for the starting line up in that game to once again be picked by Hughes, the only real doubt being whether to risk Shane Long.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
