Southampton v Yeovil preview

Dani Osvaldo will not be available for selection in Southampton's FA Cup fourth-round clash with Yeovil at St Mary's after the striker was given a two-week ban by the club following a training ground altercation.

The 28-year-old was due to return to the squad after serving a three-game suspension but will now sit out another three Saints fixtures as a result of the Italy international's involvement in Wednesday's fracas.

With a Premier League clash with Arsenal on Tuesday night, Southampton are likely to rotate their team but there will definitely be no place for Dejan Lovren, Gaston Ramirez (both ankle) or Victor Wanyama (calf).

Yeovil will be able to field loan signing Ishmael Miller when they travel to Southampton looking to cause an FA Cup upset.

The powerful striker arrived from Nottingham Forest on Thursday until the end of the season and has been given the green light to feature by his parent club.

There will be a change at left-back for the away day after Zoumana Bakayogo returned to Leicester having damaged his cruciate ligament on his debut at Birmingham and, with Liam Davis sidelined due to a broken toe, Jamie McAllister or Luke Ayling look set to step in.

Ed Upson is clear of his ankle problem and came through an appearance in a friendly against Plymouth unscathed and he is pushing for a start, but Matteo Lanzoni is cup-tied.
