LuaLua returns to light training
Lomana LuaLua
Portsmouth striker Lomana LuaLua has returned to light training following his malaria - but the club will not rush the 24-year-old back into action.

Pompey have struggled since LuaLua's last game on 17 September, slipping to 17th in the Premiership table.

"I'm going to take my time and make sure I'm fully fit when I come back. I'm starting with some light jogging. I'll see how it goes," he said.

"I don't want to rush. The specialist gave me the go-ahead to train."

Pompey boss Alain Perrin could have LuaLua back against Liverpool at Anfield on 19 November but is also wary of rushing the player.

"He has a lot of strength to build up and we cannot expect a quick return," said Perrin.

LuaLua said he was pleased to be back in action.

"I'm happy about that because I'm bored sitting at home. My blood levels are getting to be where they need to be and my liver condition is improving."
