As Saints step up their preparations for the West Brom clash this coming weekend, Mauricio Pellegrino has only an ongoing injury to fullback Jérémy Pied to contend with, after confirming the remainder of his squad are all likely to be available.

The Frenchman has only made one appearance this term, during the EFL Cup defeat to Wolves, with Portuguese defender Cédric favoured for all Premier League encounters.

Asked about the fitness of his team, the manager responded: "We have Jérémy Pied that is coming back, he is the only one who is in trouble right now. Nothing else."

With his squad in seemingly good shape approaching the Albion tie, Pellegrino is hoping to further build on the character shown during Saints' second-half resurgence against Newcastle.

He added: "The reaction and personality of the team to push them [Newcastle] was good, in terms of character of the team was right. 

"In the end the point is not good enough, we need to convert this in to victories and three points. But the reaction of the team was positive."
