Teams - Reading v Pompey

This is the Reading line up:

Marcus Hahnemann
Graeme Murty
Ibrahima Sonko
Ivar Ingimarsson
Nicky Shorey
Stephen Hunt
James Harper
Kalifa Cisse
Bobby Convey
Kevin Doyle
Dave Kitson


Substitutes
Adam Federici
Leroy Lita
Andre Bikey
Ulises De la Cruz
Shane Long


The only changes from the last game saw Glen Johnson return from injury in place of Lauren - who dropped to the bench - and Sulley Muntari come in for Kanu, who also dropped to the bench. There was no start for Dave Nugent though as had been hoped for, if not expected...

So we line up like this:

David James
Glen Johnson
Sol Campbell
Sylvain Distin
Hermann Hreidarsson
John Utaka
Papa Bouba Diop
Richard Hughes
Sulley Muntari
Niko Kranjcar
Benjani


Substitutes
Asmir Begovic
Lauren
Dave Nugent
Matty Taylor
Kanu

14:58 4-5-1 - Very predictable but as least Kanu has been rested - I'm convinced he's not playing anybody who is not african in case of injury while the ANC is on - Thank God Johnson is playing I was worried about him ... there's a big B&Q next to Readings Ground !

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!

Will pair stay at Fratton?

It's been made (more than once) clear by Catlin Pompey want Davies & Hollands to stay. Both (also more than once) have said they want to this - deals have to be right for all concerned.
