BLUES skipper Jason De Vos has not been named in the squad that meets Portsmouth in the FA Cup.

De Vos is still struggling with a rib injury that made him a doubt for the West Brom game but he played and came through fine, so it is possible he might still play against Pompey.

Alex Bruce, who was not named in the original squad against West Brom but then did play, is also named in this 20-man party today.

Richard Naylor, who was pencilled in to face Coventry last Saturday but then didn't travel as he had not played a reserve game, is named in this squad even though he still has not played a competitive match.

Alan Lee, who has been troubled by an Achilles problem, is also included.
