Finnan may be set for Pompey bow

Portsmouth boss Paul Hart could hand a long-awaited debut to defender Steve Finnan in the Premier League clash with Everton on Saturday lunchtime.

Finnan has been struggling with a hamstring injury since his move from Espanyol over the summer, but came through a friendly behind closed doors this week.

Hart is still waiting for Papa Bouba Diop and Herman Hreidarsson to recover from hamstring and foot injuries respectively, while Carling Cup hero Aruna Dindane may not start as he continues his fight for fitness.

Squad: James, Kaboul, Mokoena, Mullins, Utaka, Kanu, Begovic, Basinas, Belhadj, Vanden Borre, Piquionne, Smith, O’Hara, Brown, Prince-Boateng, Ben Haim, Williamson, Yebda, Dindane, Finnan, Webber.
