O’Hara banned for Gunners game

Former Arsenal striker Kanu has been cleared to face his old club

before heading off to the African Nations Cup, along with Hassan

Yebda and Nadir Belhadj, while Aruna Dindane could also be given

dispensation to play ahead of the tournament in Angola. England

international David James (calf) missed the defeat to West Ham, so

Asmir Begovic could continue in goal. Pompey (from): Begovic,

Finnan, Ben-Haim, Belhadj, Hreidarsson, Kaboul, Brown, Utaka,

Mullins, Piquionne, Dindane, Boateng, Diop, Wilson, Yebda, Ashdown.
