Pompey hopefully return to Fratton park for the first time since the 13th of November when we fell to Doncaster, since then there have only been 3 games to savour, and 2 wins as well.
First off for those trying to travel tomorrow, there will be no trains or buses on the day, the ferries will run their sunday services, but otherwise it is foot or taxi.
Anyway, Millwall await us tomorrow, the weather has seen us lose ground on the pacesetters, we are in fact one point off of our opponents tomorrow, we have a game in hand though and it will be a tough encounter against an old foe.
Steve Cotterill has finally mentioned the ‘p’ word, he was loathe to even think about promotion after our terrible start, but two impressive wins away to both Norwich and Swansea has refuelled his belief.
Pompey Team News:
Pompey have one enforced change to make, Halford is banned after picking up a 5th booking, this is countered however by the return of Dickinson from his own ban, this allows Ward to slot back in on the right.
Nugent has stated that he is going nowhere until at least the end of the season, this a boost in itself what with the wafer thin squad. Pompey’s only issues maybe with Michael Brown, if his contract problem hasn’t been sorted, he may well be absent.
Player to watch: Nugent
He has looked very lively again of late, the goals are starting to return for him as well, never a bad thing!
Millwall Team News:
Paul Robinson is the big doubt for Millwall, he has twanged a hamstring and looks a major doubt, Darren Ward will step in if he fails to make it.
Player to watch: Shittu
The defender is linked with a move to highfliers Cardiff, it remains to be seen if this will mess with his head or inspire him.
