Portsmouth v Burnley preview
Team news ahead of the Championship clash between Portsmouth and Burnley at Fratton Park on Saturday.
Pompey picked up no new injuries and may stay unchanged as they beat Hull 2-0 on Tuesday night to record back-to-back home victories.
Luca Scapuzzi is pushing for a full debut, after starting on the bench for the club's last two games since his arrival from Man City.
Fellow City youngster Karim Rekik is likely to keep his place at left-back after impressing on Tuesday night.
Aaron Mokoena is still struggling with an ankle injury, while veteran striker Kanu has yet to get over his back problems.
Out-of-form striker Dave Kitson is set to miss out on the matchday squad for the fifth consecutive game.
Burnley's top scorer Jay Rodriguez remains a major doubt. The 21-goal striker missed last weekend's 2-2 draw with West Ham after aggravating a hip problem on his return in the defeat at Ipswich last midweek.
With the exception of Rodriguez, boss Eddie Howe has a clean bill of health as his side look to turn around a run of seven npower Championship games without a victory.
When Howe's men last claimed three points against Barnsley on Valentine's Day they still harboured play-off ambitions and the manager feels a long season has got the better of his youthful squad.
He told the Lancashire Telegraph: "From our side we've maybe suffered for having such a small squad and needing to rely on the same players week in, week out, and eventually that does take its toll.
"That's hugely frustrating because we've got the makings of a really good side. If we can keep the basis of this squad together, I'm sure we'll be competitive next year."
