Pompey hope for James return

Portsmouth goalkeeper David James may make his return from a knee injury in tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League match against fellow strugglers Bolton.

Pompey are still missing Papa Bouba Diop and Steve Finnan, who both have hamstring problems, while Herman Hreidarsson has a foot injury.

Striker Danny Webber has completed his move to Portsmouth – and Tal Ben-Haim, Kevin Prince-Boateng, Jamie O’Hara, Mike Williamson, Aruna Dindane and Hassan Yebda could also push for their club debuts.

Provisional squad: James, Kaboul, Mokoena, Mullins, Nugent, Utaka, Kanu, Ashdown, Hughes, Begovic, Basinas, Belhadj, Vanden Borre, Piquionne, Smith, Niemi, O’Hara, Brown, Prince-Boateng, Ben-Haim, Williamson, Dindane, Yebda.
