Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl has confirmed he will rotate his squad for tonight’s Carabao Cup tie at Newport County.

Saints head to Wales for their second game in four days, with a Premier League trip to Newcastle also looming on Saturday.

Having named an unchanged starting eleven for the opening two league games, Hasenhüttl will look to his squad for the second round tie.

“There will be a lot of rotation,” the boss confirmed. “We will give the players a chance to play who haven’t played so far.

“We are concentrating always on the cup, but this season we have more alternatives on the bench and all the academy players, so this side is a bit bigger and it gives me more alternatives.

“They really need to play, those guys, and we will definitely give them a chance to do it.

“It’s a tough game to go there,” Hasenhüttl continued. “You need to be really lively and organised.

“It’s definitely not a Sunday afternoon walk, so you have to go for everything if you want to take something there.”
