Defender Alan Stubbs is Everton's only absentee for the Fratton Park trip, whilst Pompey welcomes Kanu back into their squad.

Distin: they won't score seven against us!

"Everton are a good side but they are definitely not going to score seven against us.

"They are not going to score seven every week. We've done it once this season, too, but it's the kind of score that you are only going to see once or twice a season."

"Everton have a good squad and are always in the top seven or eight, play in Europe and strengthen well every summer, so we know it's going to be a tough game."

Squads

Portsmouth (from): James; Johnson, Campbell, Distin, Pamarot, Utaka, Davis, Diop, Muntari, Kranjcar, Benjani, Kanu, Hreidarsson, Taylor, Pedro Mendes, Nugent, Lauren, Ashdown.

Everton (from): Howard, Hibbert, Neville, Yobo, Lescott, Valente, Baines, Pienaar, Carsley, Osman, Arteta, Cahill, Vaughan, Anichebe, Johnson, Yakubu, McFadden, Gravesen, Jagielka, Wessels.

Another one with a draw written all over it. These two sides are the Premiership's improving sides, but a draw will be a fair share of the result here at Pompey.
