Artur Boruc has beaten his back injury in time for Southampton's Barclays Premier League trip to Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Poland stopper's return offsets the continued absence of fellow goalkeeper Kelvin Davis, also with back trouble.

Maya Yoshida (knee) and Gaston Ramirez (ankle) will also miss out on the Villa Park clash.

Leandro Bacuna is back in the Aston Villa squad for Saturday's home clash with Southampton.

The Dutchman, who can play at full-back or in midfield, missed the defeat to Crystal Palace with a hamstring strain but is back in contention to face the Saints.

Otherwise, Paul Lambert is choosing from the same squad with Christian Benteke, Libor Kozak, Charles N'Zogbia, Jores Okore, Nicklas Helenius and Gary Gardner all long-term absentees.
