Festa suffers injury blow
Portsmouth defender Gianluca Festa may be out of action for a month.

The club are waiting for the results of a scan taken on his knee after he collided with team-mate Arjan De Zeeuw in Saturday's defeat to Leicester.

Assistant boss Jim Smith said the injury does not look good.

The news could not come at a worse time for the Fratton Park club, who already have a defensive crisis.

Manager Harry Redknapp said he is looking for cover as five other defenders are out of their match with Wolves.

Meanwhile, Pompey striker Svetoslav Todorov has been named in the Bulgaria squad for his country's friendly against Spain on 20 November.

It is the first time coach Plamen Markov has called up Todorov since taking charge of the national team.
