Edwards Skippers Town at Pompey Tuesday, 14th Feb 2012 18:58
Carlos Edwards skippers Town for the first time as Paul Jewell names the expected side for tonight’s game at Portsmouth. Damien Delaney replacing the injured Ibrahima Sonko is the only change from the team which started the victories over West Ham and Coventry and the abandoned game against Middlesbrough at the weekend.
Jack Ainsley comes on to a bench which is otherwise unchanged. Josh Carson and Ryan Stevenson travelled but aren’t involved.
Portsmouth are unchanged from the side which drew 1-1 at Blackpool at the weekend with all three January Town targets starting. Full match preview here.
Town: Lee-Barrett, Edwards (C), Delaney, Smith, Cresswell, Drury, Hyam, Martin, Emmanuel-Thomas, Murphy, Chopra. Subs: McCarthy, Ainsley, Leadbitter, Bullard, Scotland.
Portsmouth: Henderson, Halford, Pearce, Rocha, Ben-Haim, Ward, Lawrence (C), Mullins, Etuhu, Huseklepp, Futacs. Subs: Ashdown, Mokoena, Benjani, Webster, Kitson.

Odd making a player captain when his current deal is due to expire soon and no doubt in discussions with other clubs. Why did we sign the Hearts guy? Not needed. We desperately wanted a CB. Odd. Carson - he really must have annoyed PJ - a so called arm round the shoulder manager (clearly not!).
Anyway, good luck to the players tonight. I still think we will win. Should do anyway.
Hmmm , jas and walberswick, this is tricky, how do we turn this into a negative??. Three points, clean sheet................oh I know, Jewell your an idiot for allowing all those bookings, and u clegg , your both to blame.
