But a few short years ago, this would be a Pompey full-house hoping to catch a glimpse of the upper tiers of British football, how times change!
Pompey will probably ring the changes all round on this one, in fact Leeds will probably field a part youth team, such has the League cup slipped from status, but everyone harks on about a chance for silverware and Europe, but the managers take no notice.
And on another note, if you want to see Pompey fringe take on Leeds fringe tonight, get ready to fork out another £25 for the privilege.
Your guess is as good as mine, expect Ashdown to have a glove warming match tonight, along with others like Songo'o, Cranie, Duffy, Traore and Hughes.
Nugent should start tonight, probably with Benjani, both will be looking to bang one in, Nuge to get off and running, and Benji to keep his confidence up.
Playing a level he is familiar with, Nuge will be hoping to get that elusive first goal to kick off his season.
Not the big names we remember from a couple of years back, although Tore Andre-Flo is leading the line, if he plays or not is another matter.
The ex-Saints man will be out shove Pompey taunts down their throats, but again he may be saved for more pressing issues, like regaing positive points status in the league.
6-1 last time out at Fratton, both teams have lost most players since back then, although Linvoy and Gary O'Neil will have fond memories.
Pompey win? You would hope so, but all comes down to desire tonight.
Back to the serious stuff of Liverpool and Arsenal
