Bacuna, who missed last weekend's match against Crystal Palace with a hamstring injury, is set to return Saturday against Southampton, the club's official web site reports.

Bacuna switches back-and-forth between the midfield and the back four, but it wouldn't be surprising if he pushed up this weekend as Villa look to fill the scoring void left by Christian Benteke, who is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles. Bacuna has five goals and an assist this season, although it's been over a month since his last score.

Bacuna scored in the 37th minute of Aston Villa's 4-1 win over Norwich City on Sunday.

Bacuna, who plays as a midfielder and a defender for Villa, has scored three goals in his last seven matches. He'll have to wait an extra week to try to start a goal streak, as Aston Villa's match against Manchester City next weekend has been postponed, which means his next shot comes March 15 against Chelsea.
