Czech Republic striker Milan Baros is set for his Portsmouth debut at Manchester United after signing on loan from Lyon.

Czech Republic striker Milan Baros is set for his Portsmouth debut at Manchester United after signing on loan from Lyon.

Skipper Sol Campbell should return following a back injury to bolster the defence.

Baros looks certain to start after David Nugent flew to Germany for a hernia operation later this week, leaving Pompey with just one other available forward in Benjani Mwaruwari, who is troubled by a neck and shoulder injury, but is expected to play.

Sean Davis, who made his comeback as a substitute from a month-long absence with a foot injury last Saturday in the FA Cup win over Plymouth, is pressing for a starting role.

Noe Pamarot and Lauren could miss out.

Team (from): James, Johnson, Campbell, Distin, Hreidarsson, Davis, Diarra, Mendes, Kranjcar, Benjani, Baros, Pamarot, Lauren, Hughes, Aubey, Mvuemba, Songo’o, Begovic.
