Naismith could make Portsmouth return after injury

Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett is hopeful winger Kal Naismith will be fit for the visit of Blackpool.

The 26-year-old missed the midweek win at Fleetwood with a minor groin problem but could return to this weekend’s squad.

Nathan Thompson sits out the second game of his four-match ban while Gareth Evans and Brett Pitman are expected to be sidelined for another couple of matches.

Midfielder Stuart O’Keefe is likely to be out until mid-April having undergone a hernia operation.

Blackpool striker Kyle Vassell will hope to be able to force his way back into the squad after being left out the last two games.

Midfielder Jimmy Ryan is set to start his third successive match for the first time since Boxing Day after a number of niggling injuries.

Forward Mark Cullen (hamstring) and midfielder Jim McAlister (bone bruising) are still some weeks away from full fitness.

Winger Viv Solomon-Otabor showed no ill effects from the cramp he suffered last week and is set to continue.
