Football - Rocha may not be ready to roll

Portsmouth will check on Ricardo Rocha ahead of the trip to Shrewsbury.

The Portuguese defender has missed Pompey's last two matches with a hamstring niggle.

Rocha is unlikely to be risked unless he is 100 per cent fit so boss Guy Whittingham could stick with the side which thumped Sheffield United 3-0 last weekend, meaning Sam Sodje keeps his place at centre-half.

Young midfielder Nick Awford made his debut as a late substitute against the Blades and will be hoping to be involved again.

Teenage winger Jed Wallace could be playing his last game for the club having been linked with a summer move along the south coast to Brighton.

Whittingham takes charge for the first time since being confirmed as Pompey's permanent manager on Wednesday.
