All of the other players having featured in the Carling Cup this season.
Neil Banfield spoke ahead of the game:
“Eduardo is starting tonight. He has trained for the last couple of weeks and he has looked sharper and sharper every time. We’re all delighted that he’s making his return tonight against Portsmouth. It is a fantastic boost to have him back. It was a horrific injury and he’s done ever so well. I think it is a credit to Tony Colbert, the whole medical team and the backroom staff who have got him fit. I have seen him train from the first steps he took on what has been a very long road for him and they really have done a great job with him.”
Awesome news. Kick off at 7pm.]]>
