Todorov out for season 15 Aug
Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that he expects striker Svetoslav Todorov to miss the whole season after suffering a knee ligament injury in training.
The Bulgaria international hit 26 goals during Pompey's promotion campaign and had been a central part of Redknapp's plans for Premiership survival.
"The last thing we needed at this stage was an injury like this because the squad is so thin," he said.
"I thought Todorov was capable of scoring goals in the Premiership, but he may be out for some time now.
"It's going to be tough staying up at this level, but then nobody expected anything from us last year, yet we still won the championship.
"We will certainly give it our best shot."
In Todorov's absence Yakubu Ayegbeni and Teddy Sheringham are likely to play up front against Aston Villa on Saturday.
