Pamarot given an injury boost

Pamarot given an injury boost

Noe Pamarot's hamstring injury is not as bad as first feared, but he will still miss the trip to Anfield this weekend, but he is hoping that he will be fit to feature against Arsenal.

It is only a small tear so it will not take the usual weeks to heal, probably only a week but this injury will now see him drop out of the side which will be a shame for him as he has come in and done a job, but that will see the door open again for Hermann Hreidarsson or Matty Taylor.

Pamarot did blame himself slightly though, as he felt that had he warmed up better prior to the start of the 2nd half on a bitterely cold day at Fratton Park he might have avoided the injury, and knowing full well he has a history of hamstring problems he feels he should have known better.

I am a big fan of Taylor's and do feel that he is able to play at left back, but you would expect Harry Redknapp to go with Hreidarsson wouldn't you?

If he does some will say this no two ways about it signals and end to Taylor's Pompey career - which is probably already the case anyway? - but on that count I would disagree, as much as Taylor has waited longer for his chance Hreidarsson is a more natural left back isn't he.

Whoever comes in though will do a job, it will then be down to the other to try and force the other one out again, not forgetting Pamarot who will be trying to force his way back in when fit - competition for places is very healthy.

Shame about Noe as he has done a good job since he's been there but Herrmann (never sure if it's 2 r's, 2 m's or 2 n's or a combination) will come in and do a good job and then probably keep Noe out - I don't see Matty Taylor playing though..more's the pity

We started with Herman in that position, he had a bit of a dodgy start and then settled down well - only lost his place because he was injured and Noe came in for him, and did well enough to keep his place. So I would expect Herman to return. Also I feel its more of a cover position for Matty, he's OK there but its not his main strength.

i still think that matty taylor can play their well - altho i agree that its not his best position so it'll be hermann - its 1 r and 2 n's, the surname is the difficult one! - who as you said looked dodgy at first but then really settled in an excelled didnt he.

yea, like I said earlier I like Herm coming in, he provides more of an attacking presence and he seamed to play well with kranjcar on the wing, however it is a boost to hear Noe coming back because the squad is pretty thin as it is

Wish you well Noe. He did very well. He might have to wait bit as HH will now have a run.

Either Noe or Herminator at left back. I'm afraid Matty T is not as good as those two in that position. Hence why he has such a job to get a start this year. Not the best at left back; and not the best at left midfield...oh to be in Harry's shoes...:-(

Northampton (h) - Securing home advantage?

Some could view this as a 'dead rubber!' It isn't as Champions Northampton will want to end on a high and Pompey will want 'an advantage' against Plymouth in the play-offs. Right?

Pompey MotM at Hartlepool

Pompey went into the penultimate game with a slim chance of a top 3 finish. A 2-0 win at Hartlepool saw the Blues do what we needed but wins for others ended those chances.

An emergency loan arrival of a goalie has been ruled out by the Football League but this doesn't mean a free agent cannot be signed by Pompey should a suitable option be found?
