​Rodriguez to make Southampton return after international break

Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez will make his latest return from injury after the international break.

The 26 year old managed an hour for the club's under-21 side on Monday and will get 90 minutes under his belt with the youngsters again this weekend.

"Jay will play for 90 minutes for the under-21s," said boss Ronald Koeman.

"He needs that game time and then with the international break coming up, with two weeks of good training he will be available for the first team.

"I didn't see the game he played but saw clips and got information from Jay and (coach) Martin Hunter.

"It was his first game, he played 60 minutes, and before being selected for the first team he needs 90 minutes."
