Vital Statistics and Videos - Scummers



Scummers:
* The Scummers come into this match as leaders of the Championship, after having spent the entire season in the top 2.
* Away from home they have only won 1 of their last 8 fixtures, and have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of these.
* The Scummers are the league's top scorers, with 44 goals in 21 games, with Ricky Lambert topping the individual standings with 14 of these.
* Coming into this game the Scummers have only managed 4 points from their last 12, their worst run of form in 13 months.

Portsmouth:
* Pompey come into this match with off the back of 2 wins on the bounce for the first time since last March.
* At Fratton Park, Pompey haven't lost since September, accumulating 13 points from a possible 15 in that time.
* Portsmouth have only shipped 8 goals at Fratton Park this season, a record that no other team in the Championship top 10 can beat.
* David Norris is joint top scorer for Pompey thanks to his last gasp strike at Burnley, putting him on 5 for the season alongside Luke Varney.

Head-to-head:
* The last two meetings between these two sides both ended in famous 4-1 victories for the Blue side of Hampshire.
* The Scummers haven't won at Fratton Park for 27 years, and haven't won a league game here in 35 years.
* It has been 24 years since these two sides played out a draw, and there hasn't been a goalless match between them since 1924.
* There are currently no players that have played for both clubs in either squad, however throughout the years there have been a host of players and managers that crossed the divide, such as; Mick Channon, Alan McLoughlin, Nigel Quashie, Peter Crouch, Alan Ball and Harry Redknapp.

Special Treat:
* I couldn't decide on which video I wanted to show most, so here is both of them, the highlights from the last two times the clubs met. Enjoy!
