Two gutted teams come together tomorrow, Reading after scoring 4 times away from home and still coming away with a whooping, and Pompey after performing so abysmally hosting 'boro.
'pompey are running on empty' that was Harrys summing up on Saturday. How he shuffles the pack only he knows, but after the lacklustre performance at home, something has got to give. I think maybe Kanu will slip to the bench, there is even a shock rumour that Nugent may get a start!
Nicky Shorey is battling a bug that kept him out of the Spurs clash, Gunnarsson is in the middle of a 3 match ban, and Duberry and Brown are back in training but doubts for a start.
The Irishman is apparently the subject of a Roy Keane bid, but the Royals want to hang on to Petr Cechs first choice as best man, and his determined wing play and strong running will feature heavily tomorrow.
Glen Johnson and Noe are still big doubts, as is Sean Davis. Mendes is expected to be recovered from illness, and Muttley will be hoping to resume in midfield.
The formation we go for is another quandry, the 4-5-1 has been great away from home, but are the players too lethargic to carry it through now?
I expect Taylor to appear at Left-back in place of Hermann and maybe the rare old sight of Nugent up front, whoever plays will have a great chance of stamping a place out in the side for the next few games.
Rumours abide that he is off, but if he gets his sought after start will have a great deal to prove, both to Redknapp and any would be suitors, Reading supposedly one.
7-4 was the score at Fratton, remembered not only as a goalfest, but also as the last time we actually found the net at Fratton!
I can't predict my next meal at the moment, but hazard a guess here.
