Striker misses out for Saints
The striker is away with Poland so Pardew must make at least one change to his starting XI, with Matthew Paterson likely to come in. New boys Radhi Jaidi and Papa N'Diaye may have to wait to make their debuts for the Saints. Former Birmingham defender Jaidi and Senegal forward N'Diaye both joined the club this week but have yet to receive international clearance. Veteran defender Graeme Murty is still sidelined with the knee injury he suffered in the Carling Cup defeat by Birmingham so Wayne Thomas should deputise at right-back again. Midfielder Joseph Mills (hamstring) and winger Kayne McLaggon (Achilles) are still in the treatment room.
