Team news for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash between Southampton and Cardiff.

Saints duo face late assessments

Southampton's Jay Rodriguez will miss the next six months after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament and could be joined on the sidelines for Cardiff's visit this weekend by several other first-team players.

The England international suffered the injury during last weekend's 4-1 defeat at Manchester City - a match which Gaston Ramirez (ankle) and Artur Boruc (back) missed through injury.

The pair will be assessed before Saturday's match, which back-up goalkeeper Kelvin Davis is likely to sit out due to a hip problem. Maya Yoshida (knee) is a long-term absentee.

Cardiff will be without winger Craig Noone for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash away to Southampton.

Noone is set to miss the rest of this season due to an abdominal injury, and is due to see a specialist in the United States about the problem.

Striker Kenwyne Jones could also miss out at St Mary's after taking a blow to the kidneys during last weekend's 3-0 home defeat against Crystal Palace.

Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, meanwhile, confirmed that Peter Whittingham would start this weekend as the Welsh club target crucial points in their fight against relegation.
