Piquionne may miss Burnley clash

On-loan striker Frederic Piquionne is a doubt for Portsmouth’s Barclays Premier League match at Burnley tomorrow.

On-loan striker Frederic Piquionne is a doubt for Portsmouth’s Barclays Premier League match at Burnley tomorrow.

The Frenchman is struggling to be fit for the Turf Moor clash because of a hamstring injury sustained during last week’s home defeat against Stoke.

Tal Ben-Haim could figure after groin surgery, Aaron Mokoena may return after knee ligament trouble and Hermann Hreidarsson will continue playing despite an uncomfortable Achilles, however Anthony Vanden Borre (hamstring) and Kevin-Prince Boateng (ankle) remain sidelined.

Provisional squad: James, Hreidarsson, Wilson, Finnan, Ben-Haim, Belhadj, Yebda, Bouba Diop, Mokoena, O’Hara, Dindane, Owusu-Abeyie, Webber, Utaka, Piquionne, Rocha, Mullins, Kanu, Basinas, Tosic, Ashdown, Hughes.
