Trio Return To Turn The Screw

Glenn Roeder has confirmed Celestine Babayaro is in Newcastle's starting line-up against Portsmouth, following his three-match ban and groin injury. However, both Emre and Antoine Sibierski are out through injury.



The long-awaited return of Kieron Dyer will not happen against Pompey, but it is thought he will play a part in Saturday's Premiership game with Charlton.

Portsmouth are still without skipper Dejan Stefanovic (knee) and a thigh injury also threatens to rule out his fellow defender Glen Johnson.

Striker Lomana LuaLua has recovered from the virus which forced him to miss Saturday's match at Chelsea and looks set to link up with Newcastle old boy Andy Cole in attack, with Kanu and Benjani Mwaruwari rested.

Like Cole, defender Andy O'Brien may face his old club as manager Harry Redknapp ponders whether to rest veteran centre-backs Sol Campbell and Linvoy Primus. Dean Kiely stands by to take over in goal from David James.

Newcastle (from): Harper, Carr, Babayaro, Ramage, Taylor, Bramble, Moore, Solano, Parker, N'Zogbia, Butt, Duff, Milner, Martins, Ameobi, Rossi, Luque, Srnicek, Krul.

Portsmouth (from): Kiely (or James); O'Brien, Johnson, Pamarot, Primus, Hughes, Campbell, O'Neil, Fernandes, Davis, Taylor, Mendes, Koroman, Kranjcar, LuaLua, Cole, Thompson, Kanu, Benjani, Jordan.
