Albion, who have Phil Edwards and David Gray among their number, will treat the League 2 play-off final as any other game

James Constable has left League 2 side Oxford United to sign for Conference Premier outfit Eastleigh.

The striker, who was one short of Graham Atkinson’s club record 107 goals for the Us, told BBC Radio Oxford that he was offered less money than he was on previously to stay at the club.

The 29-year-old to the BBC: “I enjoyed being here but with a new family and the age I am I need to look after them and that has been the main factor behind the decision to leave Oxford.”

Portsmouth are mulling over whether to offer Trevor Carson a deal.
