Southampton welcome back Lambert

Southampton boss Nigel Adkins will be able to call on the services of star striker Rickie Lambert for their clash with Leicester City on Monday night.

Nigel Adkins is able to welcome back Rickie Lambert.

The Saints saw their position at the top of the Championship table taken away from them when West Ham United beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 on Saturday.

Adkins and his side will go back to the top of the pile if they can beat the Foxes, who have never won a league game at St Mary's.

Southampton will be boosted by the return of Lambert following his three-match suspension, and the former Bristol Rovers frontman will be looking to add to his 15 goals in the Championship this season.

The Saints are 10/11 to win, with the Foxes at 3/1 to take the three points on the south coast. A draw between the two teams can be backed at 12/5.

Don't forget, if the match finishes 0-0, bet365 will refund all pre-match Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and Scorecast bets with our fantastic Bore Draw Money Back offer.

Leicester could be boosted by their latest loan signing Nathan Delfouneso who joined the Foxes from Premier League outfit Aston Villa on a one-month loan deal on Monday.
