Match Preview

Saints trio struggling for fitness Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino could be without a trio of players for the Barclays Premier League clash with West Ham on Saturday. A virus has sidelined Luke Shaw, Jason Puncheon and Jay Rodriguez and all are now doubts for the visit of the Hammers. Other than the three players fighting illness, Pochettino has a clean bill of health as his side look for the win that would move them on to 40 points for the season. Pochettino has refused to criticise West Ham for their perceived negative approach in some of their Premier League fixtures this season. Following last weekend's goalless draw at Liverpool there were plenty of questions asked about the system and style of play deployed by Hammers boss Sam Allardyce. Pochettino, who has brought free-flowing and attacking football to St Mary's since replacing Nigel Adkins in January, has guided the Saints into 11th spot in the table and welcomes West Ham to the south coast on Saturday. But the former Argentina international accepted that there are different ways of picking up vital results in the league and said he and his players must respect West Ham's approach if they are to overcome Allardyce's side. "There are always different tastes and different points of view in football," he said. "I think they got a result that was positive for them [against Liverpool]. Many people are interested in how you win and how you get positive results and there are some that don't care about that, both points of view are respected. Asked how he thought Allardyce would set his team up at St Mary's, Pochettino replied: "I think West Ham are going to be very direct, very aggressive and play the long ball to try and keep us in our half. "There were many times during the game against Liverpool when this was effective for them - we have to take into account that their players are very tall and aggressive, very physical. "We have to try and impose our brand of football, be dynamic and keep going forward. We also need to be aware that we will suffer against them when we don't have the ball." West Ham will have on-loan striker Andy Carroll available after he was ineligible for last weekend's goalless draw against parent club Liverpool. Midfielder Joe Cole (hamstring) and Mark Noble (shoulder) are still sidelined. Defenders Winston Reid (hip) and George McCartney (knee) also remain out. Southampton's run of positive results from attacking football which has impressed Hammers boss Allardyce. He said: "At home, we all want to use a pressing game because it creates a much more active and quicker game that fans want to see. They don't want to see us playing with a slow tempo and a slow build up in the Premier League. "Certainly when you're the home team the emphasis is on you, so actually pressing high up the pitch is a good way to get the players on a high tempo and then of course get the fans cheering for the team." Allardyce has to decide whether to recall Andy Carroll after the on-loan forward was not available for selection against his parent club last weekend. The Irons boss, however, knows Southampton present plenty of attacking problems themselves. "(Rickie) Lambert and (Jay) Rodriguez without a doubt, and (Adam) Lallana if he plays, all three of them have mastered the challenge of the Premier League brilliantly," he said. "Lambert has been doing it right from the very start. He has scored goals in every division he has played in now, which is a magnificent achievement. "Rodriguez, of course, having had time to settle from Burnley, has shown the sort of goalscoring form that he managed before. "Lallana has always been a good player in my eyes so that's a very dangerous front three, so we will need to be as good defensively as were against Liverpool."

Carroll earns Hammers point

Andy Carroll earned West Ham a hard-fought 1-1 draw in miserable conditions at Southampton, bringing the hosts' three-match winning streak to an end.

The on-loan 24-year-old missed last weekend's trip to parent club Liverpool and made an immediate impact on his return to Sam Allardyce's starting line-up.

Having proved a nuisance all afternoon, the #35million striker fired low past Artur Boruc to deny Southampton a fourth win on the bounce.

Saints came closest to breaking the deadlock in a nondescript first half, with Jussi Jaaskelainen somehow tipping a close-range Rickie Lambert effort onto the post.

Carroll fired just wide 10 minutes into the second half and the hosts soon capitalised, with club record signing Gaston Ramirez netting.

The lead was to last just seven minutes, though, as Carroll found the net after firing home a short free-kick from Gary O'Neil to earn the east Londoners a point at their fellow promoted side.

Carroll was West Ham's only change at Southampton, who brought Danny Fox and Adam Lallana in for Luke Shaw and Jay Rodriguez after the pair fell ill during the week.

Lallana was quick to make an impact in a week in which he penned a new five-year deal, being denied inside two minutes by a late James Tomkins challenge.

Morgan Schneiderlin received the afternoon's first booking moments later after going down easy under a challenge from Kevin Nolan, who soon tested Boruc from close range.

Ricardo Vaz Te was the next to go close, flashing a 25-yard drive just over, although play was fairly even.

James Collins and Tomkins had to be alert to clear threatening balls from Nathaniel Clyne, before a Lallana cross just evaded Jack Cork at the back post.

In truth, neither side were creating many clear-cut opportunities as they struggled to keep possession in the wet and windy conditions.

Fox was booked for a sliding challenge on Guy Demel before the Saints left-back almost gifted the visitors a goal.

The 26-year-old was easily turned on the wing by Vaz Te, whose pull back would have been turned in by Nolan was it not for Jos Hooiveld's intervention.

Tomkins reacted well to thwart Lallana from close range when play returned to the other end, with Jaaskelainen then superbly denying Lambert.

Ramirez floated in a free-kick to the back post and the Saints forward prodded goalwards, only for the Hammers goalkeeper to superbly tip onto the post.

Suggestions the ball was over the line were waved away by referee Mike Dean, who soon booked Carroll for repeated dissent.

The officials were involved yet again as the half drew to a close Ramirez and Joey O'Brien tangled in the box before Lambert headed a Cork cross inches wide.

It was an exciting end to a tepid first half, with both sides struggling in the poor weather.

That continued after the break and it took until the 55th minute for the first chance of note, with Carroll flashing a strike inches wide after Saints failed to clear their lines.

The hosts took advantage of that miss by taking the lead just three minutes later.

Boruc's long ball up field was only cleared by Tomkins as far as Ramirez, who went through to net his fifth of the season. After the ball squirmed under a joint challenge from Collins and Tomkins, he coolly fired home past Jaaskelainen.

Saints were looking far from comfortable, though, and only a last-ditch Cork header prevented Nolan bundling home an equaliser.

However, the 2,740 visiting fans did not have to wait long for something to cheer about as West Ham won a free-kick on the edge of the box and O'Neil played it short for Carroll to fire low past Boruc via a slight deflection off Steven Davis.

Southampton brought on Rodriguez for Lallana in a bid to find a winner, with the in-form striker's first contribution to go on a run that brought a foul from substitute Emmanuel Pogatetz, who was booked for his challenge.

Carroll saw a low strike stopped by Boruc as he searched for his second, before coming back to deny Rodriguez at the other end.

Lambert hit a 20-yard free-kick at the West Ham wall late on and the visitors saw handball appeals against Hooiveld waved away, before Rodriguez tested Jaaskelainen from distance.
