26 March 2010 02:35
Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana has reported fit for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final against Carlisle United after recovering from a groin injury.Morgan Scheiderlin (hamstring) needs a fitness test, but Jon Otsemobor, Dan Seaborne, Jason Puncheon and Lee Barnard are all cup-tied for Wembley. [LNB]Carlisle strikers Jason Price and Ben Marshall are also cup-tie. [LNB]But Danny Livesey (hamstring) and Joe Anyinsah (hernia) are fit and Tom Taiwo has served a two-game ban. [LNB]Both sides will be making their first trip to the new Wembley. [LNB]But, for Carlisle, this is the fifth final they have made in this competition in all its various guises - two of which were at the old Wembley. [LNB]They lost 1-0 to Birmingham City, to a golden goal from Paul Tait in 1995, before returning to the Twin Towers two years later to beat Colchester United 4-3 on penalties. [LNB]But, while Wembley was out of action, the Cumbrians were unsuccessful in both their trips to Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. [LNB]They lost 2-0 Bristol City in the LDV Cup final in 2003, before going down again 2-1 to Swansea City in 2006. [LNB]Southampton also enjoyed just one cup triumph at the old Wembley, thanks to Bobby Stokes' goal in 1976, in their famous victory over Manchester United. [LNB]Saints were then back at Wembley for the 1979 League Cup final when beaten 3-2 by Nottingham Forest, who repeated the same scoreline in the 1992 Zenith Data Systems final.
