Pompey make one enforced change from last weekends defeat, Noe Pamarot’s injury keeps him out – Hermann Hreidarsson got the nod. Injury means Sean Davis misses out again so Pedro Mendes keeps his place in the side. Lauren and Kanu return to the bench, along with keeper Asmir Begovic so we line up like this:

David James
Glen Johnson
Sol Campbell
Sylvain Distin
Hermann Hreidarsson
John Utaka
Papa Bouba Diop
Pedro Mendes
Sulley Muntari
Niko Kranjcar

Asmir Begovic
Dave Nugent
Matty Taylor
