Portsmouth’s injury list is growing after Thursday’s UEFA Cup flop in Braga with Glen Johnson (pelvis) and Glen Little (torn hamstring) joining the casualties ahead of Sunday’s Barclays Premier League clash at home to Fulham.
Niko Kranjcar (ankle) is still out but in training again with the squad for the first time since August and Lassana Diarra could return after missing the last three games through suspension and a knee injury.
Younes Kaboul missed out again in Braga with a back injury, Johnson was injured in training while winger Little lasted just 21 minutes of his UEFA Cup debut and could be out for several weeks. Armand Traore should be fit along with Jerome Thomas (back) and Richard Hughes (groin) who was on the bench on Thursday.
Team (from): James, Pamarot, Campbell, Distin, Belhadj, Diop, Diarra, Davis, Hughes, A Traore, Crouch, Defoe, Kaboul, Utaka, Hreidarssson, Mvuemba, Kanu, Thomas, Lauren, Ashdown.
