Match Preview

Problems mount for Pompey Crisis club Portsmouth have lost two more players ahead of the crucial npower Championship clash with relegation rivals Bristol City. Midfielder Hayden Mullins, last season's player of the year, has joined Reading and goalkeeper Stephen Henderson is moving to West Ham as Pompey's administrators continue to slash the wage bill to keep the club afloat. Boss Michael Appleton could hand a full debut to striker Chris Maguire, who was drafted in on loan from Derby last Friday and got a late run-out in the 2-0 defeat at Brighton 24 hours later. Veteran forwards Kanu and Benjani look set to miss out again. Kanu is still struggling for fitness due to a persistent back problem and Benjani has a calf injury. Lewin Nyatanga's persistent ankle problem could once again keep him sidelined for Bristol City. The defender has missed the Robins' last two games with the injury and is rated as doubtful again. Midfielder Sean Davis, on loan from Bolton, is also struggling with a thigh strain. Fellow loanee Jordan Spence, borrowed from West Ham, has returned to training following a minor calf strain and should be available for manager Derek McInnes. Defenders Jamie McAllister and Louis Carey will be available after shaking off minor ailments. Marvin Elliott (Achilles), fellow striker David Clarkson (ankle) and defenders Cole Skuse (broken toe) and James Wilson (ankle) are all out. McInnes' side will be desperate for an away win to increase their chances of survival but they have yet to score in six defeats on their travels since the turn of the year.
