Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Portsmouth and Bournemouth at Fratton Park.
Portsmouth boss Michael Appleton has added nine new players to his squad.
Appleton was forced to play the club's kids in Tuesday's League Cup defeat at Plymouth Argyle and first-team coach Ashley Westwood signed on a non-contract basis in order to play before limping off with ankle ligament damage.
But the Pompey chief has been handed a major boost after being able to hand one-month deals to a host of players who have trialled with the club during the summer.
Kieran Djilali, Mustapha Dumbuya, Jon Harley, Brian Howard, Izale McLeod, Lee Williamson, Jack Compton, Luke Rodgers and Liam Walker have all agreed deals. Simon Eastwood, who featured against the Pilgrims in midweek, also signs after originally playing on a non-contract basis.
Howard will take on the role of captain at the club. The midfielder has been at Reading for the past three seasons and spent time on loan at Millwall last season.
Bournemouth could be without midfielder Joe Partington after he was withdrawn during Tuesday's League Cup defeat to Oxford after a heavy challenge from Adam Chapman.
Donal McDermott is expected to deputise alongside Harry Arter if the 22-year-old fails a late fitness test.
Manager Paul Groves is already without strikers Frank Demouge, Josh McQuoid and Charlie Sheringham but Steve Fletcher did return to the bench following a dead leg and could be in contention to start.
Adam Bartlett (hamstring) and Tommy Elphick (Achilles) both missed out against the U's and may return but Richard Hughes is not match fit.
Summer signing Eunan O'Kane will be available after returning from international duty with Republic of Ireland's Under-21s.
