Ipswich vs. Pompey

Portman Road



Ipswich v Pompey

Pompey have a 'decent' record at Portman Road in recent times, and in general, so we could have had a worse midweek opponent - then again it could have been easier!

Vital Quotes:

It was not always pretty but it was effective at the weekend as the post Cotterill era started with the caretakers collecting us 3pts courtesy of a 2-0 win over Barnsley.

It was a decent performance all-round but if we can see more of the 2nd half showing throughout the whole of the 90-minutes tonight then, for me, anything is possible although coming away with a point will be more than acceptable...

Ipswich Team News:

Apparently Ipswich have 'no fresh injury worries' so enforced changes will not be made by Paul Jewell - if he decides to is another matter?

Player to watch: Jason Scotland

BBC say that he needs one more goal for his 100th in league football, so he will be hungry for it tonight - he also, by all accounts, scored a belter at the weekend then again Michael Chopra is a danger too.

Pompey Team News:

Dave Kitson - rib - is now fully fit and to be fair to him more than played his part in the weekend win. He is 'fighting' for a starting place and with Benjani immediately taken down the tunnel, for treatment on a knee I assume, he may well start in his place?

In a rare instance in recent times who is 'left out' of the 16 continues to be a problem for PFC as opposed to how do we manage to fill the bench!

Player to watch: Chuck Norris

Could not really be anyone other could it?

Against his former side he is bound to be that 'little bit more' up for it and following his best performance so far in a Pompey shirt, with a fine goal to go with it, at the weekend he - and we - will be looking for more of the same.

Match Facts & Stats

In 39 previous meetings in total Ipswich hold a 17-11 lead, with 11 draws. Away though we are tied at 8 wins apiece with 4 draws.

The last meeting came in February with us winning 2-0 at Portman Road, the meeting before that was a 0-0 draw at Fratton in September 2010.

The last time Ipswich beat us in the league came back in the 2002/03 season when they spanked us 3-0 on Good Friday, a game broadcast on sky if I recall?

Ref Watch:

Alf Garnett.

Match Prediction:

Give me a point and I would take it now but we are capable of getting all of them, then again so are we none!

Its going to be tough as usual - If the defence is tight we could sneak it but its more likely 1-0 to them I think.. thats what my head says anyway! Hoping for more.. PuP

As long as Pompey don't play it long ball we will be alright, they have a defender who will head it away all day long, on the floor though he is crap! Enter Sonko
