Puel provides pre-Stoke City injury news

By SFC Media Mon 12 Dec Stoke vs Saints

Southampton boss Claude Puel has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the midweek trip to Stoke City in the Premier League.

Dušan Tadić returned to the side against Middlesbrough after recovering from a broken nose, while it has been confirmed that Charlie Austin will be out for three to four months with a shoulder injury.

Defender Matt Targett and goalkeeper Alex McCarthy remain unavailable as Saints go in search of back-to-back wins.

Puel said: “Matt Targett has had surgery and will stay out for three or four months.

“McCarthy is still out and I think there are no other players unavailable.”
