Portsmouth 2 - 2 Derby County

PORTSMOUTH v DERBY COUNTY League 1 #42

Tuesday 2nd April 2024, 2000 Fratton Park, Portsmouth

So, once again we confound expectations and beat a tidy Blackpool side 1-0. Never in any doubt.

A long journey to the south coast see th Mighty Rams pitted against the league leaders in Potsmouth - long journey for a Tuesday night and yet another away end sell-out.

The pressure to perform is still there as witnessed by a Bolton win on Monday which poises it nicely for another couple of games and Posh are still grinding out results, still we are definitely mathematically in the play-offs. Nice.

Lets face it Potsmouth are pretty streetwise and have been fairly consistent this season, I just know that this game will have a major say on how our season pans out.

Lets see which Derby County turns up and if they put in a performance.

You never know.

Team: Wildsmith (GK), Wilson, Cashin, Collins, Mendez-Laing (C), Smith, Sibley, Ward, Blackett-Taylor, Adams, Nelson

Subs: Vickers (GK), Hourihane, Waghorn, Washington, Thompson, Fornah, Robinson

So, that's Barnsley out of the equation. Bolton and maybe Peterborough left to see off.

Bolton have to play Pompey and Peterborough.

Peterborough also have to play Oxford but their other 4 games are relatively straightforward.

I can see them picking up 10/12 points in their next 5 games.

Its going to come down to the final Saturday and might all depend on Peterborough v Bolton

I had a look at Posh's fixtures last week and they've got four games to play in TEN days. I expect them to struggle to win all four.

Depending on Cheltenham's efforts they may still be fighting for relegation survival on 23/4 when they play Posh.

There are some very interesting fixtures coming up. But if you need 3 points on the last day to be promoted then we have the best possible one.

Against a team who are already on death row.

You couldn't make it up. 😵

Hopefully we’re done and dusted before that but who would you rather play?

Hopefully a good dose of Extra Time and a stressful penalty shootout for Wycombe today ahead of our game.

Wycombe lost with an IT goal.

How sad, never mind.

Hopefully that’s not Peterborough’s only trip to Wembley this season
