Team news

Southampton will present a difficult challenge for Rotherham United on Saturday. A number of crucial defenders and several significant strikers are out of the picture owing to injuries including Tyler Blackett, Cameron Humphreys, and Grant Hall, along with Shane Ferguson and Andre Green.

They may have to continue with the same team, which isn’t ideal, even though they had a strong draw the previous time out.

Southampton’s offense appears potent with three players who have scored a combined 27 goals this season, despite the fact that they too have several players sidelined. Also, their backline is more composed.

Both teams will be feeling the bit of missing players, so it’s hard to say how this one will go.
