Suspended Glen Johnson and injured Sean Davis (knee) miss Portsmouth’s home Premier League clash with West Brom.
Winger Jermaine Pennant is fit enough to start after a calf problem and Younes Kaboul will remain at right back.
Papa Bouba Diop is on the road to recovery from a knee ligament injury which has kept him out since January, while Richard Hughes continues in midfield having proved his fitness at Hull last week following a hamstring injury which sidelined him for two months.
On-loan Armand Traore has recovered from a sprained ankle but is unlikely to feature while Greek pair Angelos Basinas and Theo Gekas, signed in the January window, have hopes of only a substitute’s role at best.
Team (from): James, Kaboul, Campbell, Distin, Hreidarsson, Pennant, Hughes, Mullins, Nugent, Kranjcar, Crouch, Kanu, Pamarot, Belhadj, Utaka, Basinas, Traore, Wilson, Cranie, Begovic.
