Football - Ertl banned for Pompey

Portsmouth boss Guy Whittingham will be without suspended midfielder Johnny Ertl when they travel to Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup.

PA Sport Report

Ertl was shown a straight red card during Pompey's disappointing 4-1 defeat to Oxford on the opening day and will begin a three-match ban.

Defender Bondz N'Gala could make his debut, with Whittingham expected to shuffle his pack.

Phil Smith is likely to feature in goal while fellow fringe players Tom Craddock and Ricky Holmes are also pushing for inclusion.
