Pompey duo return from bans

Glen Johnson and Sean Davis are expected to return to Portsmouth's side for the Premier League visit of Bolton tomorrow.

Younes Kaboul and Richard Hughes appear most vulnerable if the pair are recalled, with Johnson available after suspension and Davis now recovered from a knock.

Jermaine Pennant should be fit despite being substituted in some discomfort during last week's clash with West Brom, but on-loan Greek striker Theofanis Gekas could be among the substitutes.

Reserve goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown is fit again after three months absence with an ankle injury but Canadian Amir Begovic is likely to continue as cover for David James.

Team (from): James, Johnson, Campbell, Distin, Hreidarsson, Pennant, Mullins, Davis, Nugent, Kranjcar, Crouch, Hughes, Kaboul, Belhadj, Kanu, Utaka, Pamarot, Basinas, Traore, Gekas, Begovic.
