On Sky

Two 'crisis' sides meet today, I tell you what though, these big boys don't know the meaning of the word! Sat in 6th with only champions league qualification to worry about, luxury.

Vital Quotes:

Pompey may well be up against an omnipotent force today, Carragher has had a few words with beardy about some divine intervention, hopefully Primus' chair is a bit nearer to the man though.

Pompey have the carrot of knowing that a win would drag us off the bottom for the first time since the summer at the expense of West Ham who don't play until Sunday, and we know the stat about who is bottom at Xmas goes down generally.

Pompey Team News:

Pompey will have Boateng and James available again after illness, while Yootha Kaboul has finished his ban.

Avram will know doubt tinker with the side after wednesday's match, Piquionne may have done enough to hold his spot, but will it be Dindane or Kanu to partner him in what will surely be a more attacking side?

Steve Finnan looks favourite for the right-back spot ahead of Ben-Haim.

Player to watch: Piquionne

A goal midweek will hopefully be the catalyst for a rich vein of form from the Frenchman.

Scousers Team News:

Carragher makes his 600th appearance for 'pool, while Torres will probably be taken out of cotton wool for this one.
Glen Johnson should be fit after a sore hamstring, he will no doubt get a very warm welcome after starring for us in recent years.

Player to watch: Johnson

Still our player of the year, Hreidarsson will have to be on his toes for his trickery.

Match Facts & Stats

A 3-2 defeat last year saw Tony Adams depart, maybe this year its our turn?

Ref Watch:

Silverton Hutchinson

Match Prediction:

C'mon paulsmouth, no sitting on the fence now!!! Hopefully the conditions will even it up. We must get amongst them, play ugly & upset them. I've had my bacon sandwiches (sorry Avram), wooly hat ready & off to the match I go. Play up Pompey.

Being in our position we cannot sit back and hope for a draw. We should have a go at them, and hope we get the 3 points. They aren't playing any good at the moment. Come on Blues! It is gonna be interesting to see Johnson. I think we should play Belhadj instead of Hermann at left back; the lad has the pace one needs to stop Glen!
