Pompey bid farewell to another Premiership team again, this time we van say goodbye to Matt Taylor and Sean Davis, a couple of players that if we had stuck with rather than splashing the cash we would still be up there!

Vital Quotes:

Anyone getting a little tingle looking at the date for the match? Should bring back happy memories for most fans, this time though the match is almost the equivalent of a dead rubber, Bolton are just about safe while Pompey have long since slipped through the trapdoor.

All the talk this week has been about debts and Europe, we will have one next season but not the other, guess which?

Bolton Team News:

Bolton may start with Weiss on-loan from City, he should be joined by old big nose O'Brien who has recovered from a knock in time to face his old club. Basham and Gardner are also back in contention.

Player to watch: Cahill

Taylor and Davies are the obvious goal threats, but Cahill is hoping to play his way into Capello's plans for a summer vaction.

Pompey Team News:

Pompey have Rocha back in training and are lifted by the availability of Aruna Dindane once more, Lenny Sowah may get a chance to prove he is our left-sided future once more, while Matt Ritchie and Joel Ward are also dying for a recall and further action.

Player to watch: Dindane

He wants to play in the final and also impress Eriksson now in charge of the Ivory Coast, the games are ticking off so a couple of goals wouldn't go amiss.

Match Facts & Stats

Pompey have certainly shared the results around with Bolton in the Premier league, we have only one win on their ground however when I seem to recall Allardyce saying Pompey 'out-Boltoned Bolton' back in 2004 as De Zeeuw got the winner, another fond memory would be a 4-0 win at Fratton a couple of weeks into our fledgling season with a Sheringham hat-trick sending us top.

Ref Watch:

Saul Hudson

Match Prediction:

Have Pompey got a last hurrah left in us? Stick a bet here.

Watching it on Fox Sports and they've just said that Sowah is the first player born after the birth of the PL to play in the PL.

It's good to see that footballing-wise there's no heads bowed at Pompey.
