Vital Statistics - Doncaster
PompeyFrippy's 'Vital Statistics' ahead of Doncaster's visit to Fratton tomorrow.

Doncaster:
* After gaining just 1 point from their first 7 games, Doncaster's form has picked up under new manager Dean Saunders, picking up a respectable 7 points from their last 5 games.

* Doncaster are the league's lowest scoring team so far this season, finding the net just 7 times in 12 matches.

* Donny have failed to score in 50% of their fixtures this season, and have only scored more than once in 2 of their last 23 games.

* Since beating Portsmouth 3-2 at Fratton Park last November, Doncaster have only managed 2 wins on the road in 21 attempts.

Portsmouth:
* All 3 of Portsmouth's wins in the League this season have come at Fratton Park, gaining 10 points from their last 5 games there.

* Only 4 of Pompey's 12 fixtures this season has seen both teams find the net.

* The last Portsmouth player to score in the first half at Fratton Park was Hermann Hreidarsson last March (against Scunnythorpe).

* Portsmouth have not picked up any bookings in the 2 games since Steve Cotterill left his managerial post.

Head-to-Head:
* In the 12 times these two teams have clashed post WWII, Doncaster have only won twice, with Pompey tasting victory on 8 occasions.

* Portsmouth have scored exactly 2 goals in the last 4 meetings between the two sides.

* Doncaster have failed to score in 7 out of the 12 fixtures against Pompey.

* Neither side boast any players that have played for the opposition.

Special Treat:
* Donny manager Dean Saunders is responsible for one of the most opportunistic and creative goals in history...

Nathan Thompson - A Swindon perspective

Prior to his departure for Wigan, Paul Cook wanted Nathan Thompson at Pompey. Interest was retained by Kenny Jackett, who completed his free transfer signing from Swindon last week.

On this day in history...26th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 26th June.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Interest in Plymouth midfielder? Unfortunately not

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
