Pompey will be looking to halt their current slump in much the same way as they started last seasons resurgence, by beating Man City at Fratton. If we can acheive this and go a run like last seasons final third, Europe will be a real possibility.
Stuart Pearce and Harry Redknapp have been singing each others praises this week, Pearce pointing to Harry's keen eye for a transfer, and for the style in which his teams try to play their football, and Redknapp praising Pearces' management style, pointing to the passion with which he played coming through in his coaching skills.
Fan's favourite Linvoy Primus is a definite non-starter after damaging a thigh in training, O'neil remains a doubt with a sore calf, but Pamarot and Traore should win their fitness battles.
Sean Davis will be out to prove his abscence from the side has been no coincidence with our recent slump, and his driving runs will be a welcome addition to a recently flat midfield. Lua is again looking to improve his fitness after 90mins for the reserves at Watford and Cole will be hoping to start against his old club.
Who else? Last seasons catalyst has been a bit off the pace like most of the others lately, but hopefully can take inspiration from last seasons heroics against City, and get the blues marching once again.
Nicky Weaver is a doubt and should be replaced by Issakson the Swedish number 1, who has still to have an extended run in the side.
Will be looking to take out his England frustrations against Pompey, then again Jamo, Campbell and Taylor all have a point to make to Steve McClaren also.
Been a few goals in recent seasons in this encounter, and also will be remembered as the scence of Redknapp's departure along with Jim Smith a couple of years ago after a demoralising home defeat, but lets not look to that game and remember the Mendes match of last season!
Mike Dean, one of the less showbiz type refs at the moment, and a solid Premiership ref of the last few seasons.
Hard to call, both teams a goal shy of late, if Pompey can score first City don't have the best record of coming from behind, then again if City can pinch the lead, Pompey haven't looked like scoring twice a few weeks now, so my prediction 6-6!
Blackburn at Ewood
Chelsea at Fratton
