Linvoy back in Pompey training

Linvoy back in Pompey training

The injury news for Pompey is good news, as the Pompey Site reports that Linvoy Primus is back in training and has come through the past couple of days unscathed, so all being well he will be able to return very shortly.

Lauren, Sol Campbell, Noe Pamarot, Dejan Stefanovic, Niko Kranjcar - the latter two are yet to feature at all so far this season - and Pedro Mendes are all currently sidelined, but are also getting closer to returns.

Physio Gary Sadler is hopeful that Harry Redknapp will have a few available by the time we go to Arsenal in a couple of weeks time, with it still believed that some could even return for our trip to Chelsea this weekend - speaking of Chelsea, if you have not yet made a prediction in the prediction league you can do so by clicking here.

Sylvain Distin has not done badly for Pompey at all, but the sooner Primus can return the better. It is likely that Distin and Campbell will be the number one pairing at the back but I would feel a lot happier with Primus coming in to cover for injuries. Then as we know he rarely, if ever lets us down, so once he is back in it will be hard to leave him out again.

It may be too soon but I hope that he is ready for Chelsea on Saturday as I think we will need him, then again hopefully Campbell can also return as we need him too.

With all the rumours circulating of Sol getting itchy feet, this is excellent excellent news!

good news, hopefully he can get some reserve matches under his belt ready for the end of the month. I think you are right about Distin becvause he provides a better attacking option, but Distin does get caught out of position, we saw it at derby and against the mancs

Good old Linvoy, as always we can expect him to come in and then hold his position again. You can always bank on a 7 or 8 out of 10 performance from Mr Primus and that is something we desparately need in the back 4. Must say I have been a little concerned about HH at times with the odd miss kick and being out of position, which cost us the first goal at Derby.

Will be great to have him back. Don't believe much that I read in the tabloids at this time of year so not particularly worried about losing Sol. In my books a back four of Lauren, Distin, Campbell and Primus would be the pick of the league. To be fair, have to say that Hreidarsson looked like he worked really hard against United and Bolton and you gotta respect that.
