'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Portsmouth v Leeds Team News

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson looks like having to do without Andy O`Brien for the trip to Portsmouth on Saturday.

The defender suffered a hamstring injury in Wednesday nights FA Cup defeat to Arsenal.

Neil Collins, Leigh Bromby and club captain Richard Naylor who has recently returned to full fitness will be vying for his position.

Luciano Becchio missed the Arsenal clash after suffering a back injury last weekend and Grayson says that he is once again a doubt.

George McCartney is likely to go straight back into the side after the on loan defender was ineligible for the FA Cup tie.

Patrick Kisnorbo remains the only long-term absentee for Leeds.

Portsmouth who could only manage to name four substitutes last weekend are down to the bare bones for the clash.

They are hoping that Nadir Ciftci will be fit enough to return after he was forced to miss last weekends game at Nottingham Forest with an ankle injury.

John Utaka has missed training this week; the midfielder is a doubt for the game after suffering a hamstring injury.

Aaron Mokoena will definitely be missing after picking up his tenth yellow card of the season at Forest and he will serve the first game of a two-match ban.

Ricardo Rocha is expected to replace Mokoena in defence. Rocha as only recently returned to fitness after suffering a hamstring injury in their last home game against Hull City.

Dave Kitson is also missing through suspension after his sending off at Brighton recently, he will serve the second game of a three-match ban.

Richard Hughes and Michael Brown will once again have to sit out, as another appearance for the club would trigger clauses in their contracts, meaning Portsmouth would have to offer them both new deals.
