Well its goodbye to the championship tomorrow, and most probably goodbye to nearly every player in Pompey blue.
It seems quite apt Pompey going out at Forest, Steve Cotterill will be there to see us disappear down the football league plughole, he so nearly witnessed it last season, I know he wasn’t to everyone’s taste, but he stood by Pompey when we needed him and didn’t really want to leave, for that he must be commended.
The great Pompey firesale will begin straight after the match, of the 11 players who start the match you can guarantee at least 8 or 9 will depart before August comes round, if not more.
Forest Team News:
Dexter Blackstock looks like returning in time to play the pantomime villan.
McCleary is available after a ban, Joel Lynch looks like recovering from injury.
Player to watch: McCleary
Top scorer from the wing
Pompey Team News:
Might be a bit emotional for some tomorrow, Joel Ward and Pearce have the club very much at heart being youth players, while a lot of the others have grown very attached to the area and fans, they all know it could be their last game.
Player to watch: Maguire
For a couple of reasons, he has been our biggest goal threat and is a Derby player, going to make him the boo boy.

If you still care, place your Pompey win prediction here.
Anything other than a Pompey win will be null and void.
Maybe Swindon, maybe Eastleigh
