Football - Harley banned for Glovers clash

Experienced defender Jon Harley will miss Portsmouth's home clash against Yeovil.

The 33-year-old picked up his fifth booking of the season in the 2-1 defeat to Crawley, the club's 11th game without a win.

Guy Whittingham sprung a surprise on Boxing Day when he dropped 11-goal top scorer Izale McLeod in favour of Paul Benson, but the Pompey boss is likely to reassess his selection.

McLeod is one of seven players whose contract at Fratton Park expires in January and Whittingham will be wary of losing some of his prized assets.

He has limited options when it comes to making changes, but Lubomir Michalik could be handed a start ahead of Gabor Gyepes in defence after replacing him in the second half against the Red Devils.
