Campbell Back For Last Gasp Match

Campbell Back For Last Gasp Match

Sol Campbell, who missed Pompey's win over Manchester United and defeat at Watford is in contention for Saturday's home match against Newcastle United, according to the Portsmouth News today.

Campbell missed the last two matches due to an inflamed Achilles but after responding well to treatment, it is expected that he will line up against the Geordies in what is likely to be the very last chance of Pompey realising any hope of getting into Europe next season.

The fitness of Lauren and Benjani is still under review but indications are that both may well be available for selection.

The news that Toddy was to be offered a new deal was the best I heard last week, the news Sol could be back this weekend is the best this week... We've missed him. The defence looked a shambles without him and Lauren on Monday... With Sol in the back four Stefanovic has looked ok at left back whereas Traore has just looked like Traore! Pamarot was awful on Monday so getting Lauren back in would be a major boost also...

If we don't have Campbell for the rest of the seaons we are to wind up 13th again at the end of the season.

We need our strongest team out, the squad players are not up to it, you only need to check out the reserves' record

Now here's a guy who earns at least 50k a week, works at least 4 hours a day, and never moans, ever. Top man, give him a two year contract.

The Walsall Low Down

Walsall's away record makes good reading for Pompey, who need to pick themselves up after last Saturday's defeat at Oxford.

Playing to Lowe's strengths

Lowe looked good when he came on against Rochdale but his sending off resulted in a ban - this suspension didn't apply to the Checkatrade Trophy when he scored two against Fulham.
