Joe Ledley is out after fracturing his leg against Stoke last weekend, while Yohan Cabaye and Wilfried Zaha are nursing minor injuries so are unlikely to play as Saints end their league campaign.

With the Cup final coming up next weekend against Manchester United at Wembley, boss Pardew is keen to wrap some of his key men in cotton wool, so the likes of Damien Delaney, Scott Dann and Connor Wickham may all be given the afternoon off.

Emmanuel Adebayor could earn a start as he looks to prove he is worth a new deal, while Martin Kelly, Fraizer Campbell and Jordon Mutch may all be involved.
