Kaboul back for Pompey

Portsmouth defender Younes Kaboul returns from a one-game ban for his side’s Premier League clash with Liverpool at Fratton Park tomorrow lunchtime.

Portsmouth defender Younes Kaboul returns from a one-game ban for his side’s Premier League clash with Liverpool at Fratton Park tomorrow lunchtime.

But there are doubts over the fitness of goalkeeper David James, who sat out his side’s 2-1 loss at Chelsea on Wednesday night with the calf problem which has troubled him for much of the season.

Asmir Begovic stands by to replace him, but striker Frederic Piquionne should be fit despite limping out at Stamford Bridge with cramp.

Provisional squad: James, Begovic, Mokoena, Kaboul, Mullins, Kanu, Vanden Borre, Piquionne, Ben-Haim, Yebda, Dindane, Brown, Wilson, Hreidarsson, O’Hara, Smith, Boateng, Diop, Finnan.
