POMPEY LOOK TO RETURN TO WINNING WAYS
After last weeks mauling at Old Trafford, Pompey will be hoping to return to winning ways on the more friendly Fratton turf. We may sit at fourth in the table presently, but not only did last week highlight the gulf between us and the elite, but also threw the spotlight on our lack of depth when injuries hit. Fair enough to lose Primus and Johnson to injuries, but for then a stomach virus to then wipe out Sol as well, and we suddenly start to look very vulnerable at the back after seeming impregnable.
Campbell and Primus should both return against Fulham, but Glen Johnson looks a long term absentee, and his deputy Pamarot is also struggling with a knock. (SOS to Griffin?)
Fulham have surprised a few this season so far, heavily tipped as always for the drop, Fulham look quite comfortable in mid-table and are unbeaten away since the first game of the season.
Seasons past and Pompey normally feature in home wins against Fulham, although the spectre of the 4-4 draw will always stand out in older fans memories!
The feature of Pompey`s season so far has been the ability to bounce back after demoralising defeats, and we must be hoping for more of the same against the cottagers, they play football on the ground and barring Man U, these are the teams Pompey shine against, so hopefully the only happy cottagers in Pompey Saturday night will frequent the public toilets, and not the local pubs!
Play up Pompey!
