Teams - Preston v Pompey

Teams - Preston v Pompey

This is the Preston line up:

Andy Lonergan
Billy Jones
Youl Mawene
Liam Chilvers
Callum Davidson
Chris Sedgwick
Paul McKenna
Darren Carter
Simon Whaley
Chris Brown
Karl Hawley


Substitutes
Grzegorz Szamotulski
Richard Chaplow
Brett Ormerod
Matthew Hill
Neil Mellor


Glen Johnson returned in place of Lauren - who dropped to the bench, and with Noe Pamarot injured Sylvain Distin returned. Hermann Hreidarsson retained his place, so Lucien Aubey had to be content with a place on the bench. Richard Hughes also dropped to the bench as Sulley Muntari made his return after the African nations. Milan Baros was another to drop to the bench and Jermain Defoe was cup-tied so in came John Utaka and Kanu. Sadly Dave Nugent was not fit enough for a place on the bench against his former side.

So we line up like this:

David James
Glen Johnson
Sol Campbell
Sylvain Distin
Hermann Hreidarsson
John Utaka
Lassana Diarra
Papa Bouba Diop
Sulley Muntari
Niko Kranjcar
Kanu


Substitutes
Jamie Ashdown
Lucien Aubey
Lauren
Milan Baros
Richard Hughes

Arrrrgh, Kanu up front on his own from the start?? Still, we may have the midfield to run past him now with Sulley and Diarra in.

Doing alright fellas ... we're knocking the ball around well and just waiting for a chance to find a runner... Utaka and Krunchie need to cut inside more when Kanu is holding the ball up ..

Baker has a Pompey future... apparently

A few eyebrows were raised when Carl Baker, who continues to be linked with Coventry, was left out of the squad to face Walsall. I think we've all see then social media reaction?

On this day in history...22nd August

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 22nd August.

Improvement needed

Milan Lalkovic, making his last appearance for Pompey since January, prior to a loan switch to Ross County, returned from injury to face his former club Walsall on Saturday.

Match highlights - Pompey 1-1 Walsall

Pompey are still unbeaten at Fratton Park - recovering from the defeat at Oxford - but unlike the Rochdale win we had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw against Walsall on Saturday.
