Several Southampton players will be looking for a recall to the starting line-up when struggling QPR visit on Saturday.

Gaston Ramirez and Jason Puncheon both came off the bench in last weekend's 4-2 loss at Newcastle and will be hoping to regain starting berths.

Jose Fonte was also named among the substitutes at St James' Park - his first involvement since sustaining a knee injury in the FA Cup tie against Chelsea on January 5. Recent signing Vegard Forren is still waiting for his debut.

QPR striker Bobby Zamora will miss tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash at Southampton.

The 32-year-old striker picked up an ankle injury in last weekend's 2-0 defeat to Manchester United, meaning Loic Remy could start for the first time since January 29.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp does not have many other injury concerns to contend with, although defender Tal Ben Haim is struggling with a hip flexor problem.

Provisional squads

Southampton: K Davis, Boruc, Clyne, Richardson, Fox, Shaw, Yoshida, Fonte, Forren, Hooiveld, Ward-Prowse, Cork, Chaplow, Ramirez, Schneiderlin, S Davis, Lallana, do Prado, Puncheon, Mayuka, Lambert, Rodriguez.

QPR: Cesar, Green, Onuoha, Hill, Ben Haim, Samba, Mbia, Fabio, Traore, Granero, Diakite, Hoilett, Park, Derry, Taarabt, Jenas, Townsend, Wright-Phillips, Mackie, Remy, Bothroyd.
