Pompey look for a maiden away win for the season tomorrow, the opponents will be Derby who ended a great run for the blues last season.
As the rumour mill rumbles on over who the next manager will be, Pompey have been quietly preparing for their next away fixture, the results away have been pretty poor so far, 2 resonably goos performance against West Ham and Ipswich have served up zero points, surely a change of fortune is due?
Derby Team News:
Derby Have had a solid old start to the season so far 21 points on the board and some decent results, this has been built on the back of solid defensive pairing of Shackell and O’Brien, both of who picked up knocks midweek, Shackell is the biggest doubt, an ever present so far this season and would be sorely missed if he doesn’t make it.
Mason Bennett will again make the squad if he finishes an essay on French revoulution in time.
Player to watch: Steve Interesting Davies
Top boy with 5 goals to his name.
Pompey Team News:
Pompey still have a doubt over Benjani, his hamstring is still not 100% and may not be risked with Varney and Kitson in good form.
The only change that seems feasible is Ward swapping with Huseklepp once more, this worked well at Ipswich and Hagar makes a great impact sub.
Player to watch: Varney
Goals are starting to flow now he has moved inside, more please.
