Southampton say they need fresh legs on Saturday


Hasenhuttl on squad rotation: "I think we really need fresh players on Saturday, because 120 minutes is tough for them.

"Not every position can I make a rotation, that is not possible because of the injuries we have, so we will have a look.

"It depends on how psychically strong every player is. I have a few players who are strong, but some who are not so far in their development.

"I have to have a good eye on the guys today and tomorrow and see how fresh they are."

Never a better time to play Derby. As Kool and the gang would say, we should be 'Fresh'.

Key will be to get on the front foot from the off and pressure Derby an not let them build into the game. Do that, and ideally nick an early goal and we stand a good chance here.

Sustained intensity would be nice. Something we've been lacking. I really think we need a first half lead to keep some confidence for the game.

Mentally you’d like to think they might be ever so slightly distracted with them already eyeing up a place in the 5th round after an “easy” tie next.

Harry Wilson is expected to start for Derby but Tom Lawrence picked up a hamstring injury so won't be involved. Frank Lampard says he will change the Derby starting line up to keep things fresh and he will include 2/3 of their academy players on the bench.

Not good to see anyone injured, but this is a bit of a bonus.

Yeah always rated him. Though Derby fans seem slightly less keen

It would much better if it was Wilson who was out. Lawrence is nothing special. We need to be very careful not to give free kicks away on the edge of the penalty because Wilson will punish us.

I remember a game at Pride Park, probably about 10 years ago where the conditions were oxf*rd horrific, I think only 100 or so fans made it in the end, I was living in Derby at the time so could just walk it, ended up winning 2-1, think Long scored twice.

I remember a game against them circa 85/86 that I was due to go to at the Baseball Ground to meet up with my Derby supporting mate. It was very foggy on the day so I thought the game would be off so didn’t go. Gilkesey scored in the murk and we drew 1-1

Wasn’t it snowing when we beat them at our place when Savage went in goal? Long missed a penalty against him iirc.

Yup. I too was in the away end for that glorious (but frozen) afternoon.

Nope. One win in five isn't enough to get my juices flowing.

I’d be happy with a point. It’s far too early to say we have turned a corner after a solitary win. I fear some posters may be disappointed tomorrow night. We are still deep in it.

To be honest, after tomorrow up until mid March, our fixtures really aren't too bad

Bolton away - massive game
Villa - shocking form
Wednesday - not doing great
Blackburn - poor away form
United - difficult
Rotherham - massive game
Ipswich - massive game
Wigan - massive game

Those three fixtures of Rotherham, Ipswich and Wigan could make/break our season because April is not a kind month one bit
