Sounds ridiculous saying this when we are still in August, but we really need a win tonight. The good news is that this game is coming so soon after Sunderland away, and gives Kenny and the boys a great chance to steady the good ship Pompey. I'm intrigued to see what team he puts out tonight, can see him making one or two changes, especially to our back four. Those two goals on Saturday are still haunting me - so sloppy, and so needless. I can see Raggett coming in for Burgess, and if fit, Bolton for Walkes. He could obviously bring McCRorie in to RB, but my personal view is that he would be wasted here. I'd rather see him in for Close, but Jackett is quite loyal and will probably stick with Ben, especially at home. What I do know is that the Scotsman has to start. He looked a country mile ahead of the majority of our team when he came on. The other two players who I believe are on borrowed time are Brown and Curtis, but again, I suspect KJ will stick with them for the time being. I'd like to see Haunstrup get a run out soon, and hopefully Ryan Williams will be fit soon as I could see him being a good replacement for Curtis who needs competition. One other thing, I like what I have seen of Cannon so far this season, but I'd quite like to see Pitman in the hole at some point as we all know he can score goals. I'm surprised he wasn't brought on on Saturday to be honest. There's always a chance with Brett on the pitch that he'll pull a goal out of nowhere. PUP.
Whatmough can I say
