Pompey v Stingy things

Pompey return after the international sabatical with a home visit from Watford, one of the away form sides so far.

Vital Quotes:

Pompey have new hope on and off the field tonight, on the park an upturn in fortunes has come in the last 3 outings, while off it news of our impending doom threatened to dampen spirits once more.
Tonight's Pompey statement has at least curtailed the dread of imminent extinction for now, this in turn will hopefully not turn the players minds from the job in hand.

Pompey had little action in the international break, Lawrence sat out with a slight injury, while Hermann watched on as he convalesced in Iceland. Mokoena was indeed the only man on duty.

Pompey Team News:

John Utaka is Pompey's main doubt for the match, he has a slight groin injury which may hamper his improved form. Liam Lawrence trained with the rest of the squad and should feature.
Unless Cotterill has pulled off a last minute loan coup, it looks like being the same 11 once more, all good for continuity.

Player to watch: Nugent

Starting to remember where the net is, taken 3 years but hey-ho!

Watford Team News:

Watford are one of the surprise packages so far, they are this years Blackpool so far, tipped to drop, but right up there with the jet set. Malky Mackay is in the luxurious position of having no injuries, some Steve Cotterill must dream of, of his side 14 goals have been banged in by two men, Danny Graham and Marvin Sordell neither are household names as such, well not outside Hertfordshire, Graham has had a stuttering start to his league career, languishing mainly at middlesborough where he was farmed out all over the shop, while Sordell has burst on the scence after a meek season on loan at Tranmere.

Player to watch: Sordell

Unknown quantity, but goals are coming easy so far.

Match Facts & Stats

Last time we met was when Watford were already relegated from the top flight, Pompey were looking to Europe at the time, a 4-2 defeat basically put paid to that, the match significant as been Arnold Mvuemba's debut goalscoring moment, whatever came of him?

Ref Watch:

Cathal Smythe

Match Prediction:

Back to the league for pompey and the prediction league then, who is going to triumph this time though? Place your guess here.

Next Fixtures:

Away to Hull

I read the banner and thought Stingey things? Who are we playing next the Tight RSes. Followed by another away game against the flash gits?

Smythe worries me, he looks self assuredly dodgy and he doesn't care. My tenner went 2-1 on this one, prediction league to; but I think this might be closer than that.

Its too early to hope for anymore than winning each game at the moment. Our squad is still very light and we have been lucky with injuries etc. (wish I hadn't said that). But we certainly have reason to hope, and who knows what the next few weeks will bring. Suddenly, its great to be a Pompey fan!
