Pompey are still in the Euro hunt after last week's point at Villa but games are running out fast and a win is needed if we are to join Liverpool in a Euro adventure next season.
Liverpool are expected to rest a few of their more important players with next weeks titanic clash with Chelsea being a far bigger game for them.
Sean Davis has recovered from the virus that put him out of the Villa clash, Mendes and Todorov remain absent, but Glen Johnson is fully fit and pushing for a starting berth.
The goals aren't flowing as consistently since new year, but the big man can turn a game on its head in one moment of genius, I really feel he may break his duck in this clash.
Gerrard is a confirmed absentee, Reina and Carragher are likely to join him, fringe players like Dudek and Gonzalez and Fowler should get run-outs in their place.
The no-necked Welshman was absolutely class for Blackburn at Fratton last year, and although he is struggling to make an impression at Anfield, remains a goal threat in his quest to make the Euro-squad.
A couple of defeats at Fratton for Liverpool, even the prolific Richard Hughes has bagged one against them!!
Crouch and Fowler netted at Fratton last year with Koroman getting a late consolation for Pompey.

Fully expect Pompey to go flat out for a win, the Euro dream is still within grasping distance, but defeat will see it disappear, beside the Fratton fans expect nothing less!
