‘Nadir Belhadj should come in with Jamie O’Hara ineligible to face Spurs’, not my vote, yours – although these findings from pompeyrug’s poll are thoughts that I tend to agree with in a way but cannot see happening to be honest…

As O’Hara is on-loan from Spurs rules prevent him from facing the club that owns him – remember the fiasco with Newcastle a few years back when an on-loan Lomana LuaLua scored against the barcodes! So, Paul Hart has to make at least one change from the side that beat Wolves, hopefully this would be the only change needed.

For me Belhadj would be too much of an ‘attacking option’ and with Kevin-Prince Boateng and Hassan Yebda, who seems to be a fairly offensive player really, that leaves only Michael Brown as the out-and-out defensive option from the midfield diamond Hart is going with so I would think it is almost nailed on that Aaron Mokoena will come in to add further defensive steel to the side.

Angelos Basinas could do a similar job to Mokoena, but with more quality on the ball, but the guy seems to have slipped right off the radar as has Richard Hughes, with Hayden Mullins most likely to come in ahead of either of these. Although like I say I would be amazed if Hart did not recall Mokoena and no doubt reappoint him as captain, but time will tell…

  • What the poll asked – Who should come in for O’Hara against Spurs?

  • How you voted – Belhadj 62%, Basinas 21%, Mokoena 6%, Mullins 4%, Other 4%, Hughes 3%

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys…
