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!
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 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.
Been improving and hopefully will be bouyed by the birth of a baby boy!
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.
The fulcrum of any attacking aspirations, 2 goals so far as Donny have struggled to hit the net.
Pompey won out 2-0 in Yorkshire whilst losing at home 3-2, overall Pompey have a 67% win rate!
Place your best effort here.
Derby up there
