After hob-nobbing with the superstars on Thursday evening, Pompey return to the bread and butter of Premiership football against Blackburn.
Pompey suffered heartbreak on Thursday against Milan, a credible draw felt more like a defeat, how Pompey lift themselves is up to Tony Adams, if we can perform any where near that level today, victory should be assured, if we sulk, Blackburn will fancy their chances of a first win in 9.
Defoe and Kranjcar have both returned to full training, Defoe is the more likely to figure, but Kanu proved a more than able understudy thursday and will be eager for more action.
Sean Davis should be over his cold, but again Hughes and Diop hardly performed badly against Milan.
Dijon is still absent however, we have no news on his return as yet.
Pamarot will be pushing for a return at left-back, but Belhadj has improved defensively of late and this gives the option of Traore in midfield.
Glen has hit a rich vein of form recently, he scored a belter last weekend and made 2 on thursday, hopefully that sequence will continue today.
Warnock will replace Olsson at left-back, as one suspension is replaced by the other.
David Dunn and Steven Reid a still sidelined and have no hope today.
Benni McCarthy and Roque Santa Cruz will be out to stop the rot in front of goal
Englands ex number 1 comes up against the current one, he has rediscovered some of his form of late, and pompey will have to beat him to earn a first home win under Adams.
Pompey met Blackburn 3 times last season, winning 1 and losing 2, the last goaless draw in the league was in 1934! (how did I do Dave?)
Monk D'Wally D'Honk
Pompey must be a change of luck soon surely? Blackburn will be thinking the same, and teams have a funny way of climbing out of a rut against Pompey, will today be their day? If you have not already made your predictions in the Pompey predictions league on this match do it here.
First up Wolfsburg, then west Brom
