Saints boss Ralph Hasenhüttl has confirmed that he has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s Premier League trip to Huddersfield.

The likes of Jack Stephens, Cédric and Mario Lemina rejoined the squad in training this week and the Austrian is hopeful they will be available for selection once more at the John Smith Stadium.

What he has seen is a desire on the part of the whole squad to go the extra mile and push themselves further in the days leading up to what will be a critical encounter at the bottom of the Premier League.

“Five guys rejoined us this week so I have worked with 23 players; it was a little bit too much actually to play 11 vs 11.

“I can see now that everyone wants to jump on the train because it is leaving the station. It can be a coincidence that everyone is fit now again. Maybe they are feeling that we are building up something interesting and they all want to be a part of it.

“We are sure it will be an enormously hard game that we are facing. I think if we have the same passion, character and mentality – and we will need it – then we have a good chance to beat Huddersfield.”
