Smiths crisps stadium
Pompey travel up to the midlands once more to take on a man who was mooted for the Pompey job when floppy chops left, since then Pompey's finances of course took a serious turn for the waorse, while Leicester have enjoyed a far eastern boost in their balance.
Eriksson has spoken as Pompey being possible play-off contenders still, the last two results have pegged us back a little, but like Leicester Pompey have had a great turnaround since the first couple of months of the season when we were both struggling at the foot of the table.
Cotterill has worked in the loan matrket to boost the blues ranks, while Eriksson has done similar, although he has had the back up to pay Premiership wage packets to lure the likes of Yakubu and Ricardo to the McCoy's stadium.
Steve Howard is absent with a knee injury, Eriksson can call on the might of Yakubu though, the former Pompey man has hot and cold streaks as we all remember well, he started on fire but has hit a lull since, when he scores though he normally does in flurries. Darius Vassel will be a threat also, the ex-Villa man has been given another lease of life at Leicester.
Van Anholt has thigh injury but this will be countered by the return of fellow Chelsea loanee Bruma returning to the fold.
One player who looks like not feturing is Diomansy Kamara, his proposed loan move appears to have not been completed.
Was pursued by Cotterill, looked like he might happen for a while but Eriksson stepped straight in when he arrived at the Wotsits stadium.
Unless there any last minute injury problems, you can bet that pompey will be unchanged once more, Lawrence is back in contention but won't be rushed back in, at least his return has given our bench look a lot more threatening, along with Kanu and Mokoena it has plenty of nous to change a match.
He has become key component, his youthful energy has an empowering effect on the midfield, a few days rest will have done him wonders, along with Hogg he will be given the task of containing the Leicester thinkbox.
Pompey of course slaughtered Leicester 6-1 a couple of days after defeat back in late september, it was the result that got our season up and running, but Pompey last won away to the ginger dogs back in 1994 when a Gerry Creaney inspired performance saw us win 3-0, overall we have won 10 and lost 22.
If Pompey are to have a late assault on the play-off spots, now is the time to make their run, Leicester's own charge has slipped of late, but a 3-0 win at Scunthorpe has seen them get back on the rails. So who will come out of the game with renewed hope? Place your estimates here.
