Livramento and Smallbone back in contention


Ralph Hasenhüttl has confirmed that both Tino Livramento and Will Smallbone are back in training and available for Southampton’s Emirates FA Cup clash with Coventry City on Saturday.

It’s a positive update from the boss as Saints will be looking to secure progression to the fifth round of the competition in consecutive years.

“We have at the moment two injured players,” confirmed the boss. “Alex McCarthy is out for a little bit longer with a setback from the recovery. Nathan Tella is also still out.

“Will Smallbone is back in training and Tino Livramento also, that’s it so far.”
