The Finland international stopper was forced to sit out the home game against West Brom on Saturday having picked up a knee injury during training on Friday morning.

However, the Saints boss is confident that Niemi will have recovered in time for the game against The Hornets at Vicarage Road although he has admitted that he may use Alan Blayney again so as not to risk further injury to the Saints number one.
