Dean Richards hopes to be back in training today after injury and illness ruled him out of our last two games.
The powerful centre half was absent for the home win over Newcastle and the trip to Manchester United, but is hopeful of making himself available for selection for the visit to his former club Southampton on Saturday.
"I missed the Newcastle game because my Achilles was a bit sore and was ill last week before the Manchester United game and my Achilles would have probably been alright," reported Dean.
"I still feel a bit groggy today, but will hopefully train tomorrow. Hopefully I will be available for the trip to Southampton."
