Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana is progressing well in his recovery from a knee injury.
The 22-year-old is midway through a six-week rehabilitation course following an operation and has begun light training.
"It was nice to see Adam doing a bit of light running on the training ground so positive things are coming in that direction," said Saints manager Nigel Adkins.
Striker David Connolly is also in the treatment room with a hip problem.
"There is a strain in there of some description so we are having treament on that one," added Adkins.
