Vital Quotes:

Pompey face an unsertain future as the year closes out, nothing new there, survival is now Appleton’s number 1 priority, to acheive that, points on the road are a must.

Leicester Team News:

City give a debut to teen Jeff Schlupp, he replaces big money flop Beckford up front to partner ex-blue Nugent.

Andy King is the other change, Llyod Dyer drops to the bench.

Player to watch: Nugent

Has a habit of scoring against old teams, he did so last month at Fratton, beware the nugget once more!

Pompey Team News:

Pompey give Futacs a first start, he is presumably in a front two with Kitson, he has certainly caught Appleton’s eye and comes in for Huseklepp.

One other enforced change is Mokoena in for Rocha who has a knock.

Hreidarsson returns to the bench after a long abscence.

Player to watch: Futacs

A bit of an unknown quantity still, his sheer size is an asset, hopefully will get to see the power in his left foot that we have heard about.
