Pompey sweat on Campbell

Pompey sweat on Campbell

Portsmouth hope captain Sol Campbell will recover from tight hamstrings in time for the trip to Barclays Premier League leaders Liverpool tomorrow.

Fit-again midfielder Niko Kranjcar – just back from an ankle operation – is likely to get a longer substitute run-out than Sunday’s six minutes against Fulham but Glen Johnson’s pelvic injury makes him a big doubt again.

Midfielder Sean Davis is available for Tony Adams’ first match as Pompey boss after a one-match ban – but Glen Little (hamstring) is still likely to be out.

Provisional squad: James, Pamarot, Campbell, Distin, Belhadj, Hreidarsson, Kaboul, Diarra, Diop, Davis, Hughes, A Traore, Crouch, Defoe, Kanu, Utaka, Mvuemba, Kranjcar, Thomas, D Traore, Ashdown.
