Portsmouth will not be allowed to play on-loan Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara in their FA Cup third-round tie against Coventry at Fratton Park.

Kanu, Hassan Yebda, Nadir Belhadj and Aruna Dindane are all away at the African Nations Cup.

England international David James (calf) remains a doubt, so Asmir Begovic could continue in goal.

Provisional squad: Begovic, James, Ashdown, Finnan, Ben-Haim, Hreidarsson, Kaboul, Mokoena, Vanden Borre, Boateng, Hughes, Brown, Piquionne, Diop, Utaka, Wilson, Webber, Mullins, Basinas.
