Fulham: Pompey's injury worries.

Fulham: Pompey's injury worries.

With our up and coming away match with Portsmouth at Fratton Park this weekend, Harry has some injury concern's.

Portsmouth's Gary O'Neil is a major doubt for the clash on Saturday after suffering a hamstring strain at Old Trafford.

It is too early to say whether the injury is serious, as far as hamstring strains go, but it seems highly likely O'Neil will be absent from a Premiership game for the first time this season.

That comes on top of the blow that Glen Johnson's injury is a thigh tear - and he could be out for a number of weeks.

It will break up the right-sided partnership which has been so devastating for Pompey this season, especially at home, just as Pompey need a full-strength side to kick on and make sure they do not blow the excellent start which sees them still in the top four after 11 games.

In the light of this, Redknapp probably won't be best pleased there are a round of international friendlies to be played next week.

Niko Kranjcar is in the Croatian squad to face Israel in Tel Aviv on November 15, which will probably mean him leaving the Blues squad straight after the Fulham game and not rejoining them until the day before they host Watford a week later.

Additionally, Ognijen Koroman is in the Serbia squad to face Norway while Manuel Fernandes is on stand-by for a place in the Portugal squad, who are also in action next midweek.

There is no news yet as to whether Sol Campbell and Linvoy Primus will both be fit to resume their commanding defensive partnership so missed in Manchester on Saturday.

At the moment the Strikers are fit for Pompey but you never know your luck as we need some luck to beat Harry's high flying side at Fratton park.

Good old Harry, even with the injury problems he has it still does not match ours and we are still grinding out results, could grab something here!

I have a good feeling about Saturday. Pompey have had a few bad results of late, and now they have a load of injuries, thee time is right to get Fulham right back up the league table. 3-1 is my prediction.

The last place an ex Southampton goalie wants to play is 10 yards in front of 8000 Pompey fans. Neimi has never kept a clean sheet at Fratton park and I don't expect Saturday to be any different. True we have had injury problems and when we have lost they have been to Man Utd and Chelsea away. On Saturday Sol Campbell will be back and Primus is 90% fit to play so what injury problems are you talking about. We will miss Glen Johnson but we have a team capable of beating Fulham & Watford who are our next two opponents. Sean Davis will certainly be fired up against his old club and remember we are a much better team then when we last beat you at Craven Cottage. Score prediction 2-0 to Pompey

Like a true Nelson in there with guns blazing. Johnson will be missed for sure but really nobody else....O'Neill is still a possible starter but the midfield replacements are adequate without him. Always close encounters with Fulham so I can see in my crystal ball a 2-1 Home win (Andy Cole subs to grab the winner) !! There you have it.
