Duo back in Pompey frame

Portsmouth boss Richie Barker could have Joe Devera and Simon Ferry available for the visit of AFC Wimbledon.

Devera (knee) was forced off at Exeter last time out and Ferry has missed Pompey's last four games with a back problem. Both players are back in training and pushing to be fit for Saturday.

Barker is likely to still be without defenders Danny East, Yassin Moutaouakil (both ankle) and Dan Butler (knee), as well as striker Tom Craddock (knee).

Portsmouth are in desperate need of the points with just four points separating them from 23rd-placed Torquay, who have a game in hand.

AFC Wimbledon have a host of injury problems.

Midfielder Sammy Moore suffered a head injury against Rochdale last weekend and defender Barry Fuller hobbled off in the second half.

Will Antwi (hamstring), Callum Kennedy (ankle), Peter Sweeney (foot), Andy Frampton (shoulder) and Charlie Strutton (leg) are also struggling with injuries.

Tuesday's postponement at Newport gave Neal Ardley's depleted squad much-needed respite.
