MARIO Lemina is fit and ready to play against West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup fifth-round after suffering from dizziness in last weekend's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.

The Gabon international was withdrawn from the Premier League loss just before the hour mark after complaining of feeling dizzy.

Saints have assessed the combative midfielder this week and he's been cleared to play at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

"Mario is okay," manager Mauricio Pellegrino said. "He felt a little bit dizzy during the game, but it is not a problem."

Shane Long, meanwhile, is a doubt after picking up a leg injury. Saints will decide whether the striker is fit enough for the Baggies trip on Friday.

"The only one we will decide tomorrow is Shane Long. He's the only player that is a doubt," Pellegrino added.

"He's had some problem in his leg."
