RALPH Hasenhuttl is set to make a late call on whether or not to include Danny Ings for tomorrow's home clash with Crystal Palace.

The striker has been absent for Saints' past two matches - against Leicester and Liverpool - due to a hamstring injury suffered having scored in defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on April 21.

Asked if the 28-year-old could feature against Crystal Palace tomorrow (8.15pm), boss Hasenhuttl said: "I don’t know it yet. It’s possible.

"We’ll have a look today in the (training) session and then we can decide it."

However, Saints look set to still be without both Oriol Romeu and Ryan Bertrand.

Left-back Bertrand is currently nursing a calf problem, while Spaniard Romeu has been out of action since February, having undergone surgery to repair a fractured ankle.

Speaking last week, Hasenhuttl said Romeu may be able to return to face the Eagles, but it appears the game has come too soon.

Asked if either Bertrand or Romeu would be fit to feature, Hasenhuttl replied: "No, I think they are still not available."

Saints' Premier League status could be officially secured without kicking a ball tonight.

Should 18th-placed Fulham lose against Burnley, they would then be unable to catch 16th-placed Saints with just three games to play, despite having a fixture at St Mary's to come on Saturday.

"We are a little bit more looking at us to be honest," said Hasenhuttl.

"We have now three home games at St Mary’s and we want to take a few wins there.

"Tomorrow we have to start with the first against Palace and this is what we are focusing on.

"Everything else, it is not necessary to look at it. Do your job and you don’t have to look at others."
