Dan James returns from suspension this weekend, while Jesse Marsch will also be able to welcome back three of his previously injured players for the trip to Southampton.

“Adam [Forshaw], Liam [Cooper] and Luis [Sinisterra] have all entered training and are eligible for the weekend. Junior [Firpo] is probably a couple of weeks behind, the same with Luke Ayling – although he had a visit to his surgeon down in London and the surgeon said that he’s ahead of schedule and looking really good. He just needs a little bit more time. Stuart Dallas I saw on the pitch today, moving around a little bit, so that was an exciting moment for us.

“[Sinisterra] is obviously not 100% fit but I still think there’s a good possibility he can help us with limited minutes.” – Jesse Marsch
