The big four have left the building, now its another European team to contend with.
2 points gained from our epic run, not a lot, but only Arsenal tore us apart, the rest of the season is supposed to be easier, but Rovers?
Blackburn are under-estimated at best, ignored at your peril. Mark Hughes has assembled a UEFA cup qualifying team, Benni McCarthy was among the top scorers, and beside thursdays shock defeat, they have not suffered a loss this season.
Pompey meanwhile have a solitary win to our name, we are not the best travellers as so many pundits like to remind us, and we don't traditionally fare that well at Ewood, last season going down as one of the poorest performances of the season.
Blackburn appear to have lost influential captain Ryan Nelsen with a tweaked baconstring, but Samba should be clear to return after concussion.
McCarthy will start, with either Derbyshire or Roberts as company up-front.
Big mates with Benjani, but a little more prolific, stopping the South African will be half the battle
Almost a clean bill of health for Pompey, Lauren is a doubt with illness, but everyone else is vying for a place.
It's a question of what formation we decide on that will form the team, I feel Redknapp will go similar to the Liverpool game, but am willing to stand corrected if proven wrong(hopefully!)
I would hope he will fill the right-side slot again, particularly after looking like he was in the Solent on the left, after such a dramatic entrance to the Premiership, it seems churlish to play him out of position now.
3 bloody nil last year. We were crap from the last ball to the end, and if I recall James even stopped a pen.
Draw anyone? A much needed win, or else revert to type and come home with nothing, place your bets here.
