Adams ponders changes

Portsmouth boss Tony Adams could ring the changes for tomorrow’s clash with Arsenal after yesterday's 4-1 capitulation to West Ham.

Portsmouth boss Tony Adams could ring the changes for tomorrow’s clash with Arsenal after yesterday's 4-1 capitulation to West Ham.

Pompey’s defence looks shaky and they will remain without right-back Glen Johnson, who broke down in training last week with a recurrence of a knee problem.

Younes Kaboul and John Utaka are still struggling with injury and neither will make the squad for Adams’ return to the club he represented for 19 years as a player.

Marc Wilson’s performance against the Hammers on his first Premier League start was one of the few positives and the 21-year-old should keep his place in the line-up.

Squad (from): James, Lauren, Hreidarsson, Distin, Campbell, Belhadj, Pamarot, Diop, Crouch, Nugent, Thomas, Defoe, Mvuemba, Hughes, Ashdown, Kranjcar, Cranie, Duffy, Little, Kanu, Davis, Traore, Wilson.
