Southampton vs. Cardiff City Team News, Injury Update:

Ralph Hasenhuttl revealed some good and bad news for Southampton fans in the week.

Striker Danny Ings will be sidelined for up to three weeks after picking up a hamstring injury against Burnley last weekend.

However, Ryan Bertrand could be set to return after three months out due to a back injury, while Maya Yoshida is back in the reckoning after captaining Japan to the AFC Asian Cup final.

Cardiff captain Sean Morrison is injured, but the Bluebirds could welcome back both Harry Arter and Victor Camarasa back to the first team.
