Pompey travel up to Ewood to meet fellow basement club Blackburn, Pompey though have a little bit of form behind them after 8 goals and 2 clean sheets in their last 2 outings.
Blackburn however suffered a 2-0 loss to Man Utd last week.
Blackburn have been the first club to be affected by Hog flu, Olsson is the latest to go down with it, while Jason Roberts is still suffering.
Paul Hart has had a few plaudits from his players this week, Kaboul praising him to the limit and all the players making their feelings known in their celebrations last week, he may not have won all the fans over, but the players are certainly on his side and playing for him.
Olsson drops out to nurse his curly tale, but Grella is close to pushing for a place after injury.
Roberts missed last weeks defeat with the virus, he is still show signs of it though and may well be quarantined for another week.
Supposed Pompey January target McCarthy looks likely to get no more than another sub spot, since Allardyce has come in he has really dropped down the pecking order.
The home captain is trying to plug all the gaps right now, he will have to be on top form to stop Pompey's new found confidence in front of goal.
Pompey will definitely be without Steve Finnan, an abductor strain has done for him this time, and its basically a straight toss up between Belhadj or Vanden Borre to replace him, this of course all depends where Ben haim will play on the day.
Piquionne has recovered from his concussion and should resume his fledgling partnership with Dindane, Tommy Smith will have to sit it out once more if this is the case.
Hat-trick hero last week, needs to kick on to prove it was no flash in the pan.
Everyone says we have a poor record at Ewood, but we have won 2 of out 6 meetings since the return to the top flight, losing the other 4.
There is a new optimism from Fratton towers, hopefully Paul Hart will go with it and 4-4-2 again, but how do you think we will fare, hedge a bet here.
