Tom Dubber, 23, from Southsea gives his views on what he would do in the Pompey hotseat for the FA Cup clash with Accrington.

The 0-0 draw earlier in the season epitomised our home endeavours but Accrington have a bit more about them than a lot of teams we have seen at Fratton Park.

They can cause us problems and I certainly don’t think it will be another game like the 6-0 win over York.

It was nice that game ended the recent home hoodoo and we have plenty of striking options to choose from as we saw in that game.

There’s a tough decision to make about who comes in for Caolan Lavery.

If it was down to me, I think I would bring Gareth Evans back into the starting line-up and push Adam McGurk further forward, with Conor Chaplin and Jayden Stockley on the bench.

They probably don’t want to rush Stockley back after being out for a while with his injury and Chaplin is useful coming on if we need him.

I don’t think Cook will want to re-jig things too much or go too far away from what the team have been doing lately.

In midfield, I might bring Adam Barton in for Danny Hollands.

I like the look of Barton. He looks like he is a good footballer and has got good technical ability, although I can understand why some people may not be sold on him just yet.

But Danny Hollands had a really good game against York and has done well lately.

I might make another change in central defence.

Adam Webster has been absolutely magnificent since he came into the side this season

But Matt Clarke started the season really well and probably needs a game. It would also be good to give Webster a rest.

I don’t really like making score predictions but I’m going for a 2-1 win.
