James Tomkins – who broke his nose in that game after an incident with Robin van Persie -is also expected to be in the squad which travels to the south coast.
Allardyce – assessing the injured players – revealed that Carroll could make it although he said it was “’s touch and go” adding: “We’ll see how he is tomorrow.”
On Tomkins he explained: “He broke his nose on Sunday but he should be available to play.
“A win against Southampton would be fantastic but we’re taking each game as it comes. If we play like we did on Sunday, we’ll do well.
“We’ve got 14 games left of the season and we want to maintain our level of performances. We’d like to turn our draws into wins.”
The Hammers are likely to still be without James Collins, Winston Reid, Guy Demel, Diego Poyet and Doneil Henry though, leaving Allardyce short at the back again with Sunday’s man of the match Cheikhou Kouyate likely to start in central defence as he did against United.
