Match Preview

As you were for Pompey Portsmouth have no new injury concerns ahead of the visit of Birmingham. Striker Dave Kitson was dropped from the squad which drew 0-0 with Bristol City on Saturday and could return with Pompey having scored just once in their last seven outings. But manager Michael Appleton otherwise has little room to freshen up his side following the recent departures of Erik Huseklepp, Liam Lawrence, Hayden Mullins and Stephen Henderson to trim the wage bill. Kanu is still not training due to persistent back problem and fellow veteran frontman Benjani has been struggling with a calf complaint, although he was named on the bench at the weekend. Defender Greg Halford is just one booking away from being hit with a two-match ban. Peter Ramage is expected to be fit as Birmingham continue their promotion push. The full-back was replaced after 53 minutes of Saturday's 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough having struggled with tonsillitis all week, ensuring Blues finished a second successive match with three recognised centre-backs across defence. Ramage's expected recovery for the trip to Fratton Park is a welcome boost with right-backs Jonathan Spector (thigh) and Stephen Carr (knee) already ruled out for the immediate future. Left-back David Murphy made a welcome return from his hip problem to start against Boro and will again be available, easing manager Chris Hughton's problems at full-back. On-loan striker Erik Huseklepp is ineligible to face his parent club while midfielder Jordon Mutch serves the final game of his three-match suspension.
