Boruc bounces back for Saints

Artur Boruc has beaten his back injury in time for Southampton's Premier League trip to Aston Villa.

The Poland stopper's return offsets the absence of fellow keeper Kelvin Davis, also with back trouble.

Maya Yoshida (knee) and Gaston Ramirez (ankle) will also miss out on the Villa Park test.

Pulis deserves an award - Lambert

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert believes Tony Pulis is in with a shout of being named the Barclays Premier League's manager of the season.

It wouldn't surprise me if Tony picked up something.

He did brilliantly when he was at Stoke, and he's doing really well now at Palace.

I get on pretty well with him, and you know what you get with Tony's sides, that it's going to be a hard game.

He's a squad of good, honest pros who have picked up a couple of good results lately that has given them a fighting chance.
