David James has allayed fears he won't be fit for Wembley - and it seems others will be joining him in being fine for the big day.
James missed the final three league games with a calf strain, but had said he could have played against Fulham last Sunday.
Boss Harry Redknapp was more cautious, saying it was impossible to judge how soon James would be ready for action before he'd joined in with a proper training session.
But now James says he is over the injury and looking forward to Wembley.
“The latest on my injury is that I’m not injured any more,' he told www.portsmouthfc.co.uk.

“The gaffer didn’t want to play me against Fulham, which is fine, but now I’m just looking forward to doing a normal week and getting ready for the cup final.

“It’s a relief for me because I want to play in a cup final.”

The News report that Sol Campbell has also been given the Wembley thumbs-up. He missed the Premier League finale against Fulham with a tight hamstring. But he returned to training on Monday with no reaction and will be fit to resume his defensive duties against Cardiff.

David Nugent suffered a slight groin strain while warming-up for the reserves last week but Nugent took part in some training on Tuesday and is expected to return to full training by the end of the week and therefore be fit for his expected place on the bench on Saturday.

The News also say Kanu picked up a dead leg on Sunday but Pompey are not overly concerned and he will be fine to lead the attack - if, as seems likely, selected.

Noe Pamarot and John Utaka suffered no reaction following their return from injuries. It means, aside from Linvoy Primus and the cup-tied Jermain Defoe, Pompey will be at full strength.

Cardiff boss Dave Jones will let Robbie Fowler decide on Thursday if he is fit enough for the final. The former Liverpool striker has not played since December after a hip operation and is not expected to start.
