Portsmouth will again check on the fitness of England goalkeeper David James (calf) ahead of the Barclays Premier League clash against Hull.
Kevin Prince-Boateng (ankle), Hassan Yebda (knee) and John Utaka (groin) also face fitness tests. Right-back Anthony Vanden Borre has resumed training as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
Manager Avram Grant will, however, assess the mood of the squad following the confirmation of a nine-point penalty for Portsmouth going into administration before deciding whether to make wholesale changes from the side which lost 4-1 at Liverpool.
Provisional Squad: James, Ashdown, Rocha, Finnan, Belhadj, Hreidarsson, Owusu-Abeyie, Brown, Diop, Mokoena, O’Hara, Webber, Wilson, Piquionne, Dindane, Mullins, Kanu, Hughes, O’Brien, Prince-Boateng, Yebda, Utaka, Vanden Borre.
