Stoke v Pompey

Pompey travel to the potteries tomorrow in search of the result that could lift us off of the foot of the table, today's results have offered us this chance, Wolves crashing to Chelsea, West Ham and Hull drew to stay within reach.
If pompey can eek out the win is another matter, Stoke have 16 points so far, 10 of which have come at home.
Pompey were looking good until falling apart at Blackburn a couple of weeks back, but looking at the form guide, Pompey need to make their move soon.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Hart has been quick to play down the league cup encounter which we won 4-0, Stoke were under strength in that one, and at home are a different proposition all round.

Tony Pulis meanwhile has felt at pains to point out the vociferous support of a partisan home crowd, he did however compare it with ours, we must have left a mark!

Stoke Team News:

Stoke are definitely without Abdoulaye Faye after he was sent off at Hull, while Irish duo Liam Lawrence and Glen Whelan are being monitored to see just how much their defeat to France took out of them.

Player to watch: Beattie

Public enemy number one to Pompey fans, scored two last season after Pompey looked to have taken the points.

Pompey Team News:

Pompey have doubts over Dindane who was taken off at Blackburn, and Yebda who missed that one, but did figure for Algeria in the week.
Hermann is fit at last, but looks likely to sit on the bench after so long out.
Tommy Smith will be hoping for a recall after missing the last two, while Finnan is still on the sidelines.

Player to watch: Piquionne

He has been lively in the last couple, he supposed to be a confidence player, he has scored a couple so must be in the ascendecy.

Match Facts & Stats

2-2 last year, Pompey were in front for a long time before a disputed penalty and debated offside decision gave Stoke the lead, it took a Shawcross og late on for us to get a point.

Ref Watch:

Nikolai Torp

Match Prediction:

Will a point do us? or all 3 required? Hedge a guess here.

I had forgotten we had a team!! Seems so long since that capitulation in the second half at Ewood. 2-2.

Well let's hope it's a return to winning ways. Well one winning way over Wigan... As much as I'm praying for a Pompey win, I'd be a liar if I said I was expecting one. Come on you Blues....Play Up and prove me wrong....please.
cornypomp
hmmm, we have to show some signs of wanting to win or we will lose anyway - doing so at a whimper and we do not want that...
i am not convinced that i believe it but i will got for a 2-1 win!

Gonna be a tough game and its one we must get a least a point from.. we can't keep saying that we are about to make our move .. we have to actually make it .. Three points would be great (however unlikely) a loss with Man U up next week would leave us looking doomed... 4th from bottom is looking further away each week..
Chix
well guys, enjoy - i hope i do, and hope i come back with a smile on my face and 3pts...well at least 1 :-)
