Burnley v Pompey

Anyone remember Harry Redknapps cry of 'down to the bare bones'? This generally came around the time of a transfer window peeping open, if only he could see Pompey now!

Vital Quotes:

Pompey are in the middle of their worst squad crisis for a few months, if we were still in with a shout of making the play-offs, the recent run of injuries and suspensions would surely have curtailed that by now.

Steve Cotterill has spoken of his pride that Pompey have accrued as many points as they have what with the constraits the squad has found itself under all season, rightly so when you take a look at what is still standing as the season closes out.

Burnley Team News:

Burnley are lifted by the return of marvin bartley after a 3 match suspension, he will add fresh legsa to a team still pushing hard for a play off spot.
McCann scored against Derby after 2 years sidelined and looks likely to continue.

Meanwhile Dean Marney may make the squad after missing the saturday fixture with injury.

Player to watch: Carlisle

Chris Eagles has caught the eye with some impressive displays in midfield, but for me the man who really stood out at Fratton was the countdown king Carlisle with a classy defensive performance.

Pompey Team News:

Pompey look like having a threadbare bench once more, de Laet limped offf saturday with a calf injury, while Ron Weasley has a suspected broken rib, Liam lawrence missed that fixture with another calf injury of his own, so either Kanu or Webber look likely starters.

David Cotterill is available after missing against his parent club, this however would mean Sonko won't be able to feature as it pushes the loan numbers too high once more.

Player to watch: Nugent

Thought highly of in Burnley and still 3 off of his target of 15 goals this season, time is running out mate!

Match Facts & Stats

Lost at Fratton a few weeks back, that brought an end to 5 straight wins against the clarets, our last loss at turf moor stretches back to the Mark Hateley era of 3rd division football back in '82!

I'm here paultsmouth, bacon butty in hand. Is the choice of Carlisle because he went on mastermind, well something like that?

Oh ***** I've just read it again it was countdown sorry

I actually think Carlisle is a weakness to burnley he is very slow and when the ball was played on the ground past him we scored, let's just hope we don't play to his advantage and thump balls long on to his head all night

However you play I hope you have a good game and bring home the bacon.

We are palying for pride, which for very little these days. They have a shout for a play off place. If we get a nil nil it would be a great result.

A great point in a 1-1 draw! Do you know I predicted the Swansea game would be 1-1 with the first goal in the 57th minute sadly missed the jackpot by being one game too early!
