Portsmouth could welcome back up to four players for Friday night's trip to Walsall.

On-loan striker Paul Benson returns after he was unavailable to face parent club Swindon on New Year's Day.

Midfielder Brian Howard also missed the 5-0 defeat at the County Ground with a groin injury along with defenders Ricardo Rocha and Gabor Gyepes, who had hamstring problems, so all three will be assessed.

Johnny Ertl skippered the side against the Robins in the absence of Howard.

New signing David Connolly could make his full debut in attack after starting on the bench on Tuesday.

Pompey are without a win in their last 12 npower League One games and have slipped into the relegation zone, two points from safety.
