Premiership Preview (17-18/03/07)

Pompey travel to Reading after a weeks break in our latest Barclays Premiership match knowing a win is essential. What about the others.

Saturday, 17/03/07
Blackburn v West Ham, 17:15
David Dunn (suspension) returns but Aaron Mokoena (suspension) is out with Ryan Nelsen (hamstring) a doubt.

Nigel Reo-Coker (suspension) returns along with James Collins (groin) but Matthew Upson's injury keeps him out.

Chelsea v Sheff Utd, 15:00
Michael Essien (knee) is doubtful whilst Joe Cole (foot) remains a long-term absentee. John Obi Mikel (suspension) is out.

Chris Lucketti (foot) and Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) are out but Michael Tonge and Nick Montgomery (both suspension) return.

Man Utd v Bolton, 12:45
Rio Ferdinand is said to be suffering from a cracked rib and could miss out. Louis Saha and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are injured so Ryan Giggs will start alongside Wayne Rooney up front.

Kevin Davies (ankle) needs a fitness test but Abdoulaye Meite (toe) should be fit after missing out through suspension previously.

Middlesbrough v Man City, 15:00
George Boateng (illness), Julio Arca (groin) and Yakubu (tight) could all miss out and need fitness tests.

Andreas Isaksson should keep his place in goal with Emile Mpenza also retaining his place up front.

Tottenham v Watford, 15:00
Paul Robinson, Jermaine Jenas and Teemu Tainio (all injury) are back in contention but Didier Zokora (toe) is a doubt. Anthony Gardner (fractured fibula), Ledley King (knee) and Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee) are out.

Lee Williamson, Gareth Williams and Will Hoskins (cup tied) all return but Jordan Stewart (calf) is still out with long-term injury victim Marlon King.

Wigan v Fulham, 15:00
Henri Camara (knee) may return as might Paul Scharner (knee) and Arjan De Zeeuw (toe) but Leighton Baines, Lee McCulloch and Fitz Hall (all suspension) are out.

Philippe Christanval (hamstring) is available but Vincenzo Montella completes his suspension so misses out.

Sunday, 18/03/07
Aston Villa v Liverpool, 13:35
Shaun Maloney (illness) needs a fitness test but Martin Laursen (hamstring) is out with injury once again.

Robbie Fowler is back in the Liverpool squad as Peter Crouch (nose operation) is unavailable.

Charlton v Newcastle, 13:30
Andy Reid and Ben Thatcher (both hamstring) are out while Darren Bent (knee) needs a late fitness test.

Nicky Butt (suspension) and Stephen Carr (thigh) miss out but Oguchi Onyewu (ineligible for Europe) returns after missing Newcastle`s exit.

Everton v Arsenal, 16:00
Tony Hibbert (groin) returns but Nuno Valente (calf) is doubtful. James McFadden, Tim Cahill and Andy van der Meyde are definitely out.

Kolo Toure (suspension), Alexander Hleb and Tomas Rosicky (both injury) are available but Emmanuel Adebayor (suspension) misses out while Emmanuel Eboue (ankle) and Gael Clichy (hamstring) are doubtful.

With Bolton facing United and Everton Arsenal you wouldn't expect either to get much... Spurs should win so if we can do likewise against Reading we could be back up to 7th and just 3pts behind Bolton in 5th... Things are getting tight so we have to win tomorrow...

Have to is one thing, doing it may be another.
storagematt
That is true, lets just hope that we do turn this have to win into a do win scenario...
pompeyrug
We can't lose if we keep a clean sheet, but on the other hand we are not winning by allowing other teams to keep them.

0-0 i reckon
