Southampton duo set for injury return ahead of top four race

Southampton duo Jay Rodriguez and Florin Gardos are set to make their return from injury in time to help their side fight for a top four finish, Mirror reports.

They have been out of action for an extended period after suffering serious knee injuries, but have both returned to full training.

Rodriguez only featured eight times since April 2014 and despite making his return, his recovery was halted once again after breaking his foot back in October.

Gardos has been out for almost an entire year after hurting his knee during the pre-season, but could now make his long awaited comeback.

The Saints are currently sitting sixth on the Premier League table, six points away from Manchester City in fourth as manager Ronald Koeman targets a top four finish.

His side will face a rejuvenated Chelsea side this Saturday, but have been on good form after managing to keep six consecutive clean sheets.
