    Portsmouth may only name THREE substitutes for their clash with West Ham United.

    The cash-strapped side fielded only five of the seven subs allowed in their FA Cup win over Sunderland on Saturday and injuries to Michael Brown and Papa Bouba Diop have added manager Avram Grant’s woes.

    Grant named 17-year-old Lennard Sowah among the subs in the 2-1 win but will not call on other youth teamers simply to fill the bench, says the Daily Mail.

    Pompey cannot bring in emergency loans due to a transfer embargo and they have four players who have been on duty in the Africa Cup of Nations.
