Premiership Preview (13-14/01/07)

Pompey travel to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others.

Saturday, 13/01/07
Blackburn v Arsenal, 17:15
Benni McCarthy, Robbie Savage and Brett Emerton will return after being rested, Lucas Neill after suspension. Shabani Nonda (groin) is also fit but David Bentley (suspension) misses out.

Emmanuel Adebayor (thigh) is back in the squad but Julio Baptist's four goals in midweek should see him retain his place. Abou Diaby (broken ankle) should continue his return from the bench but Lauren and Emmanuel Eboue are out.

Bolton v Man City, 15:00
Ivan Campo (suspension) returns but Kevin Nolan (rib) needs a fitness test while Quinton Fortune is a doubt. Henrik Pedersen (calf) is out and Abdoulaye Faye suspended.

Joey Barton (suspension) returns but Hatem Trabelsi (hamstring) could miss out. Paul Dickov (toe), Dietmar Hamann (back) and Danny Mills (foot) are definitely out.

Charlton v Middlesbrough, 15:00
Pedro Mendes' mate Ben Thatcher could make his Charlton debut while Scott Carson (denied permission by Liverpool to play in the Cup) returns while Hermann Hreidarsson (knee) and Andy Reid (hamstring) could also return, but Luke Young and Darren Bent are injured and Osei Sankofa suspended.

Jonathan Woodgate and Mark Schwarzer return to an otherwise almost full strength Boro side, Robert Huth (foot) the only regular absent.

Chelsea v Wigan, 15:00
Didier Drogba and Ricardo Carvalho (both suspension) return while Arjen Robben and Carlo Cudicini hope to return. Ashley Cole (suspension) John Terry, Petr Cech and Khalid Boulahrouz (injury) are all out.

Ryan Taylor broken foot and then a broken leg could be back in the Wigan squad after a year out but Arjan de Zeeuw, Andreas Granqvist, Antonio Valencia, Henri Camara and Paul Scharner are out.

Man Utd v Aston Villa, 15:00
Edwin van der Sar, Nemanja Vidic and Paul Scholes will return after being rested in the Cup with Louis Saha (groin) also in contention.

Olof Mellberg (suspension) returns but Stilian Petrov (hamstring) is out, as are Chris Sutton (eye) and Craig Gardner (groin).

Watford v Liverpool, 12:45
Gavin Mahon returns and Tamas Priskin (suspension) is available along with new signings Lee Williamson and Will Hoskins but defender Dan Shittu (ankle) is doubtful.

Luis Garcia (knee) is out for the season but Mark Gonzalez and Stephen Warnock have joined Mohamed Sissoko, Bolo Zenden and Harry Kewell on the injury list.

West Ham v Fulham, 15:00
Luis Boa Morte should make his league debut against his former employers, while former Pompey midfielder Nigel Quashie embarks on what could be another relegation fight after his midweek signing. Anton Ferdinand (groin) and Lee Bowyer (shoulder) are both out.

Philippe Christanval (injury) and Franck Queudrue (suspension) return but Clint Dempsey (incomplete paperwork) after his move from New England Revolution can't play and Ian Pearce (groin) isn't fit.

Sunday, 14/01/07
Everton v Reading, 13:45
Tim Cahill (knee damage) is back in the Everton squad after two months out but Nuno Valente is out with his own knee problem.

Graeme Murty (groin) needs a fitness test but Brynjar Gunnarsson (hamstring) is out. Dave Kitson still not match fit but along with Bobby Convey (knee) is nearing a return.

Tottenham v Newcastle, 16:00
Ledley King and Jermaine Jenas are still out along with Paul Stalteri (hip) while Mido (groin) is doubtful.

Scott Parker (suspension) and Emre (groin) could also return but Nicky Butt (virus) is a doubt back up keeper Steve Harper (hernia) could replace former Pompey keeper Pavel Srnicek on the bench.

cant see us closing the gap on BWFC, but i think we will see the bottom 3 further in the mire... there but for the grace of god and a few good men go us

Yep, it's hard to see us matching Boltons current form, particularly away, but they are due for a poor run - we've had ours recently, and we live in hope.

We beat our blades hoodoo last month so let's continue where we left off. My crystal ball has us 2-1 up in injury time.
