Pompey get a home match for the second consecutive saturday, against a team very close to us in the league, trouble is, that is too close to the bottom!

Vital Quotes:

Pompey head into a second week managerless, so far it doesn't seem to be an issue, a good win last week was followed up by a very good performance, if not good result at Ipswich.

One of the prospective new managers was in charge last season when Doncaster got a smash and grab 3-2 win at Fratton, he has of course left now for Dean Saunders to cut his managerial teeth.

A year back Doncaster were known as the Arsenal of the championship, this was due to their footballing philosiphy, this season of course they share their defencive frailties as well.

Pompey Team News:

Pompey hope to have Benjani fit after a hamstring problem, Dave Kitson has regained his place in his abscence, a good cameo last week ws folloed by a solid game at Ipswich, although he did arguably miss the best chance of the match.

Eric Huseklepp may well swap with Joel Ward once more, Pompey will go attack minded for this game I'm sure.

Player to watch: Lawrence

Been improving and hopefully will be bouyed by the birth of a baby boy!

Doncaster Team News:

Doncaster are hardly blessed with a fit and firing squad, goalkeeper Gary Woods has a long term choulder injury while on-loan replacement Chris Kirkland has lasted one match as his dodgy back gave up on him once more, this means veteran Neil Sullivan returns once more.

Ryan mason on loan from Spurs is struggling with illness while Oster and O'Connor and rated very doubtful.

Player to watch: Sharp

The fulcrum of any attacking aspirations, 2 goals so far as Donny have struggled to hit the net.

Match Facts & Stats

Pompey won out 2-0 in Yorkshire whilst losing at home 3-2, overall Pompey have a 67% win rate!

Ref Watch:

Dandy Nichols

Match Prediction:

Place your best effort here.

yep really up for this one - i was up for it last weekend against barnsley as it was my first game in weeks due to my holiday, altho i go into this game tomorrow with a genuine belief (maybe foolishly) that we will not only play well but get the points, maybe even win well!
same as what we did in the 2nd half last week and what we did in the whole 90 against ipswich - but TAKING our chances - and we will win tomorrow i am sure.

Dansy Nichols as ref..Silly Moo.. Yeh..should be good..Arsenal of the championship..must have had a descent manager then... A goalscorer needsd says Kits..what like Le fondra, Billy Sharp, and Matty Tubbs.... why is my post making me feel that Deja Vu feeling...or am imagining Ive written all this before.. All in all though ..this is a great opportunity today..we will be up for it having had a good display at the tractor boys..but will the hungarian Giant get on the bench
