Last updated : 26 September 2003 By Alex Dale
The big news is, of course, that Matthew Taylor will make his first league apperance for Pompey this season. He made his comeback this week and scored a goal in the Carling Cup second round victory.

Young midfielder Gary O'Neil, bound for Stoke City, has delayed his loan move in order to act as cover for a potentially depleted Portsmouth side.

Patrik Berger is definately out but Hayden Foxe and Steve Stone both face fitness tests fot the clash tomorrow.
