Cottagers v Pompey

After last weeks fairy tale stuff, its back to the nitty gritty again, we have one away win under the belt, can we eek out another?

Vital Quotes:

Last week was a freak, well according to the experts it was, Pompey hitting 7 was a first in my memory, and I can't remember letting in 4 at home since the mighty Leyton Orient did so!

Fulham Team News:

Jimmy Bullard could be in line for a return after his horrific injury just over a year ago.
Niemi will be hoping to reclaim his spot in place of Kasey Keller, but the Yank did his chances no harm with a blank at Chelsea.
Up front Kamara will no doubt be itching to get one over his old team-mates, and Danny Murphy could step in after a couple of impressive sub displays.

Player to watch: Kamara

May not even start, but we saw enough of Joe at Fratton to know how quick his feet are, it is only a lack of top-flight goals which stops him being a superstar.

Pompey Team News:

Benjani is a confirmed starter if fit, his first senior hat-trick was the reward for endless graft in the Pompey cause. Kanu maybe fit, but I feel will have to make do with a subs spot. Lauren limped off in our reserves draw against Villa, but it was precautionary after a tight hamstring.

After banging in 7 its doubtful that many changes will take place, so Davis and Diop should claim their places against their old club.

Player to watch: Davis

Always has something to prove whenever he returns to his first club, he gets a fair amount of abuse when he returns, but has been in great form for Pompey and a long overdue goal was fair reward (and you know what they say about buses)

Match Facts & Stats

1-1 the last two meetings, 3-1 at the Cottage the year before in a match when Redknapp won back the fans.

Ref Watch:

Howard Webb, the only thing from Yorkshire in the Premiership

Match Prediction:

Pompey actually have the edge over Fulham on their own patch, with more wins tan their hosts, can the edge further away? Hedge your bets here.

its a game that both sides will belooking to win - so it could b another high scorring thriller. that said, we will both be tight defensivly - fulham having watched the way we ripped apart reading - us wanting to make up for conceeding 4. it will be intresting to see how the game pans out.

fulham liketo think they have serious ambitions too - dont foget that. they spent quite a bit in the summer too, and have not had the best of starts. they will really be up for it, and i couldnt guarantee us to win.

Go at them from the start, get Fulham to chase the game & leave them wide open for the counter attack. We must take the chance as there will be quite a few.
