Portsmouth V Sunderland

Sunderland travel to Fratton Park for their Premiership game against Portsmouth.

The Blackcats are still yet to win away from home this season and Roy Keane`s men will be out to try and claim the double over Pompey after beating them earlier in the season at the SOL.

Portsmouth Team News:

David James is expected to recover from a stomach virus

The pacey forward will keep Evans and Nosworthy on their toes.

Jones has been in great form lately if we are going to have any chance he will have to be at his best.

There will be goals but now we have a full team we should get our revenge for last month's defeat. Play up Pompey.

Poor game to be honest, We could have had 3 pens tho. You came to shut up shop, no shots on target, your supporters were loud tho. Good luck with the rest of the year.

p.s. you need to get andy reid in the gym, he fell over once, and was stranded like a turtle on it's back! Looks to be carrying too much weight to be a prem player.

You came for a 0-0 & nearly got it.

it was clearly a penalty I think. When we had Bardsley on loan his tackling and covering were excellent, his problem was he couldn't cross a ball for s**t! Don't know if he's like that up there??? Is it true you've taken on Brian Kidd??
