Reina in fitness race for Saints clash

Pepe Reina is on course to make Liverpool's Premier League trip to Southampton on Saturday as he recovers from a calf injury.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper suffered the problem in training, and was forced to miss Sunday's 3-2 Premier League win over Tottenham.

Reina made a string of impressive saves as Liverpool won 4-0 at Wigan eight days ago, and manager Brendan Rodgers is hopeful that the Spain international will make a quick recovery.

"It was disappointing because we thought he would probably make it against Tottenham," Rodgers said.

"He had a tight calf in a fitness test on Sunday morning and unfortunately for him he didn't come through it. So I hope by next week he'll be fine."

Reina's absence gave Brad Jones the chance to make his first appearance since the 3-2 FA Cup defeat at Oldham on January 27.

"Big credit to Brad Jones, who came in at the last minute. He equipped himself terrifically," Rodgers said.

"We'll see how Pepe is next week."
