Team News: Southampton
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just a single fitness concern for the Southampton gaffer Ralph Hasenhüttl to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Sam McQueen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Shrewsbury Town
Owing to a completely injury-free squad to choose from, Shrewsbury Town boss Steve Cotterill has no fitness worries to report coming into this game.
We feel that Southampton will probably create the chances to score more than once when they meet Shrewsbury Town, who may well find it hard to get a goal of their own.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a 2-0 win for Southampton at the end of the match.
