Premiership Preview (31/03-02/04/07)

Pompey travel to London to face Fulham in our latest Barclays Premiership match as domestic football returns after the international break, what about the others.

Saturday, 31/0307
Bolton v Sheff Utd, 15:00
Ivan Campo (suspension) misses out but Kevin Davies (foot) and Abdoulaye Meite (toe) should play a part.

Danny Webber (metatarsal) joins Rob Hulse (out for the season, broken ankle) on the sidelines but Keith Gillespie (sickness) should be fit.

Charlton v Wigan, 15:00
Alexandre Song (hamstring) is doubtful but Darren Bent (knee) should be fit despite missing England's matches.

Leighton Baines, Lee McCulloch and Fitz Hall (all suspension) return along with Caleb Folan (ankle) who missed Ireland's international fixtures.

Liverpool v Arsenal, 12:45
Former Pompey forward Peter Crouch (broken nose) could return from injury after recovering during the international break.

Emmanuel Adebayor (suspension), Gael Clichy (hamstring) and Emmanuel Eboue (ankle) are all fit, but Gilberto (hip) needs a fitness test after being injured on international duty with Brazil.

Man Utd v Blackburn, 15:00
Darren Fletcher and Gary Neville (both ankle) are out but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (knee) and Edwin van der Sar (calf) should return.

David Bentley (suspension) is out but Aaron Mokoena (suspension) and Ryan Nelsen (hamstring) should return.

Newcastle v Man City, 15:00
Nicky Butt (suspension), Stephen Carr (groin), Celestine Babayaro and Peter Ramage (both hamstring) all return.

Micah Richards (calf) was injured playing for England so is out. He is the only fresh injury for City to worry about.

Watford v Chelsea, 17:15
Jordan Stewart (calf) returns whilst despite a long journey for international with America Jay DeMerit should be included.

Frank Lampard (fractured bone in his wrist) should play with a cast despite missing England's midweek game. Joe Cole (foot), Michael Essien and Wayne Bridge (both knee) miss out.

West Ham v Middlesbrough, 15:00
Matthew Upson (calf), Danny Gabbidon (groin) and Nigel Quashie (ankle) will miss out whilst Calum Davenport (foot) is doubtful.

Jonathan Woodgate (knee) could return but Julio Arca (groin) is a doubt whilst Lee Cattermole and James Morrison (both suspension) are out.

Sunday, 01/04/07
Tottenham v Reading, 16:00
Teemu Tainio (calf) and Mido (calf) are doubts. Ledley King (feet), Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee), Danny Murphy (Achilles) and Anthony Gardner (leg) are out as is Hossam Ghaly (flu.)

Graeme Murty (calf) was injured on international duty with Scotland so former Pompey target Greg Halford may start, as could Ulises de la Cruz.

Monday, 02/04/07
Aston Villa v Everton, 20:00
Martin Laursen (hamstring) is looking to return from his latest setback. Shaun Maloney (illness) could also return.

Other than injuries to Tim Cahill (out for the season) and James McFadden (foot) Everton have a full strength squad.

We could do with Sheff Utd beating Bolton, Villa beating Everton and Spurs and Reading drawing... Think all might happen with the exception of Sheff Utd beating Bolton, don't think this will happen...

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
