The waiting game
At least the agony may be over today if Southampton get a draw at Middlesbrough, when all mathematical hope of the top two will have gone. A dilemma what sort of team to play at Leicester if the Saints do go up today - do we rest key players or try to get a confidence-boosting result with a full team? At least Lansbury looks to be running into some kind of form, twice going close against Bristol City. Will he finally come good in the play-offs? And at least O'Neil and Demel should be fresh having both been out for most of the season.
