Vital Statistics - Derby

Vital Statistics - Derby
PompeyFrippy's 'Vital Statistics' ahead of Pompey's trip to Derby tomorrow.

Derby County:
* After winning 6 of their first 8 games, The Rams have failed to win any of their last 5 league games.
* At Pride Park, Derby have only tasted defeat once this season in the Championship
* Despite their slip in form in the last month, Derby remain in the play-off spots, just 3 points behind West Ham in 2nd place.
* Last season, Derby lost more games than every other Championship team (excluding those who got relegated), tasting defeat in exactly half of their games (23).

Portsmouth:
* Pompey's recent revival has seen them take 6 points from 3 games since Steve Cotterill left.
* However, The Blues are yet to pick up maximum points on the road since their 1-0 win at Leicester last March.
* Portsmouth have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 away games.
* A win for the visitors will take them to within 3 points of Derby, who currently occupy a top 6 spot.

Head-to-Head:
* Pompey's 2-0 loss at Pride Park last season was the only time either side has failed to score in any of their last 8 meetings.
* In their last 23 meetings, Portsmouth have only scored exactly 1 goal on one occasion, that being in the most recent meeting at Fratton Park earlier this year.
* Derby have scored in every one of their last 13 games against the blues.
* In form Luke Varney is set to line up against his old club tomorrow, after scoring 3 goals in his last 3 games.

Special Treat:
* Love him or not, Robbie Savage was always a bit of a character, and this was shot prior to the game against us last season (where he scored a penalty). He has since hung up his boots.

Duo sign professional Pompey deals

Will Jez Bedford and Theo Widdrington be the future Pompey midfield? We'll certainly hope so, clearly the Blues do too or they wouldn't have signed professional deals at Fratton Park.

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.
