Tractor types v Pompey

Pompey make the haul over to Suffolk to meet Ipswich once more, when we met last our aspirations were very different, circumstances though have made them a lot closer.

Vital Quotes:

When we last crossed back in early September, our roads looked very different, Pompey were the fallen skint team from the top flight, still searching for 3 points, while Ipswich
had Roy Keane in charge and were many people's choice for automatic promotion, that game finished goaless and situations grew closer.

Since then of course, Keane has departed, his brash off-handish style doesn't suit all and sundry, Paul Jewell has come in and turned things around as tractorists seemed to be in with a fight for the drop, Pompey of course had a great Autumn run, the slump in Winter curtailled that though, and both sides now meet just a point apart.

Ipswich Team News:

David Norris who supposedly 'desperate' to join Pompey last month, may just make a return to the side, he has had an ankle strain, but seems to have shifted it and is ready to claim his captain's armband once more.
Colin Healy went off in the first half during the defeat to QPR, he looks likely to be replaced by the same man who did so on the day, Adam Drury.
Otherwise it is no new injury worries, 'keeper Brian Murphy(George and Mildred?)is on the way back from a bust ankle, Fulop is safe between the sticks for now though.

Player to watch: Wickham

Only a teenager, but the brightest thing to come out of East Anglia since Alan Partridge and Cathy Dennis, likely to be poached by the premiership soon, for now though he is the main man on the east coast.

Pompey Team News:

Pompey look likely to retain the side who defeated Palce on tuesday, Liam Lawrence has been taking in the oxygen tent, today looks too soon though, Kanu meanwhile has returned from Lagos to resume his spot on the bench.

Player to watch: Nugent

Biggest threat to Ipswich probably, always seems to score at Portman road, if he signed for them however, surely he would score 30 a season?

Match Facts & Stats

0-0 in September, our last defeat was during our triumphant promotion season, but we have only met a few times since, overall it is 17-10 for Ipswich.

Ref Watch:

Merton Mick

Match Prediction:

Pompey have had a shift in impetus of late, 3 wins and 3 clean sheets on the bounce, Ipswich were flying themselves midweek though, so who will come out on top today? Stick your guess here.

Yaaaay! We did it! Listened to it on Express FM. First half sounded absolutely dire - they were all over us. But we came good in the second half. Commentators on FM have Jamie for man of the match with Ritchie de laet coming close. PUP!!!
