Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has an almost fully-fit squad to choose from when he welcomes West Brom to St Mary's for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash.

Only midfielder James Ward-Prowse, who suffered an unspecified knock in an Under-21 fixture against the Baggies earlier in the week, is absent.

Forward Guly do Prado returns to the squad after missing the trip to Swansea through illness, while full-back Luke Shaw will be pushing for a recall.

West Brom will be without captain Chris Brunt when they travel to face Southampton.

The Northern Ireland midfielder picked up a knee injury in the draw with Newcastle and has not recovered in time to feature at St Mary's, but defender Billy Jones should be available despite suffering a gash to his leg against the Magpies.

Peter Odemwingie is fit again after a knee problem while midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu serves the final games of a three-match suspension.

Provisional squads

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

West Brom: Foster, Myhill, Jones, Reid, Ridgewell, McAuley, Olsson, Thomas, Lukaku, Morrison, Dorrans, Rosenberg, Yacob, Long, Odemwingie, Fortune, Popov, Tamas, Daniels.
