Pompey take on Stevenage for the first ever time tomorrow night, Sky obviously fancy an upset so a covering it!
Stevenage enjoyed their first taste of Football league yesterday, first taking the lead and then coming from behind to equalise in the last minute, 1 game and 1 point, now they have a first taste of League cup action and will fancy the scalp of Pompey. They are no strangers to cup runs however, they were the first team to win a final at the 'new' Wembley and made the final again last season.
Jon Ashton has injured his hip and will miss out, while David Bridges serves out a suspension, Robbie Sinclair and Chris Beardsley are waiting to fill in.
He was a 2 time scorer yesterday, so that makes him this seasons top man and also Stevenage's all time top scorer in football league!
Pompey will not have the luxury of resting a few players tomorrow, this was the norm during our top flight tenure, one player who may earn that right is Mullins who has been waiting for a jab in a knee problem.
The only other real change we may see is Peter Gregory or Marlon Pack getting more of a run out.
Not given a sniff at Coventry, but he has certainly had more success in cup games with Pompey than any other game.
First time meeting between the two, so the last time we said that was Ac Milan, Wolfsburg and Heereneven!
Can Pompey kick start their season? Place your bets here.
