Football - Painter poised for Pompey bow

Marcos Painter is set to make his Portsmouth debut when Morecambe visit Fratton Park.

PA Sport Report

The defender, who this week signed for Pompey on a free transfer after leaving Brighton earlier this summer, is expected toreplace Danny East at left-back.

East could move into his preferred position in midfield, where skipper Johnny Ertl is still absent as he completes a three-match ban following his opening-day red card.

Boss Guy Whittingham is otherwise likely to stick with the side which earned Pompey's first point of the season in a 2-2 draw at Accrington last Saturday.
