Chaplow laid low for decider
Southampton midfielder Richard Chaplow will miss Saturday's promotion decider through injury.
Chaplow suffered a hamstring pull during the 2-1 defeat at Middlesbrough at the weekend and will miss the final game of the regular season at home to Coventry.
"He's out. He's pulled his hamstring so that's a bit of a blow," admitted Saints manager Nigel Adkins.
Guly do Prado, Steve de Ridder or Jason Puncheon could step in on the right of midfield against the relegated Sky Blues.
Saints need a win to be secure their return to the Premier League, with West Ham just two points behind and facing a home game against Hull.
