Pompey v Plymouth: pre-match talking points

Have your say

Pompey can get their late charge for the play-offs back on track when Middlesbrough visit Fratton Park on Saturday.

The Blues went down to a disappointed 2-1 defeat against Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Tuesday night.

The defeat brought an end to a run of six consecutive victories and a club record 636 minutes without conceding a league goal.

But has it put the brakes on their bid for the Championship play-offs?

Is there still time for Pompey to snatch a promotion lifeline and break into the top six?

There were suggestions the hectic schedule may have taken its toll on the Blues as they were defeated by the Robins.

After the Middlesbrough game, Steve Cotterill’s men have a week off before they face Leicester.

Do they need the rest, though? Are you worried about the players’ fatigue ahead of the Boro showdown?

Maybe you think Cotterill should freshen things up.

But what are his options? Should he bring Aaron Mokoena back into the side? Or possibly switch back to a 4-4-2?
