The best news for Bolton fans is that the away end at Fratton Park now has a roof. Not that there will be many of them. A two hundred and fifty mile trip and early start will see to that. Thanks Sky

Vital Quotes: Sammy Lee

‘Losing erodes away at your confidence. I am concerned but I know full well I have to pick the lads up again. Hopefully we will turn a corner.’

It will help if you can defend a corner.

Portsmouth Team News:

‘Arry’s already complaining about a small squad. Lauren is a doubt at right back and Ghanian thug Sulley Muntari is suspended after his first Portsmouth sending off. It won’t be the last.

Player to watch: Benjani

A serial misser of chances, but as he creates many of those himself it’s hard to criticise.

Bolton Team News:

Kevin Davies (hamstring), Ricardo Vaz Te (knee) and Ricardo Gardner (hamstring) are still out. New boys Daniel Braaten and Christian Wilhemlson will figure at some point.

Player to watch: Nicolas Anelka

Rumoured to be the target of a £10 million bid from Pompey. This conveniently ignores the fact that Bolton have valued him at £13 million, but why the let the facts get in the way of yet another attempt by the media to de-stabilise the club.

Match Facts & Stats

Bolton did the double over Portsmouth last season. A repeat looks unlikely at present.
