Football - New recruits boost Pompey

Portsmouth have added Trevor Carson and Therry Racon to their squad for the visit of Rochdale.

PA Sport Report

Boss Guy Whittingham moved for Bury goalkeeper Carson on loan following John Sullivan's error-strewn display in the 4-2 defeat by York last week, while free agent midfielder Racon provides cover for injury doubts Andy Barcham and Simon Ferry.

Barcham is receiving treatment on a knee problem and Ferry limped off with a hamstring complaint against the Minstermen.

There is better news in defence where Joe Devera is back in training after his hamstring injury while Shaun Cooper could also return following a groin strain, although full-back Yassin Moutaouakil is still suspended.
