Pompey return to action after the international break with an imposing-looking trip to Upton Park to face West Ham on Saturday.

Steve Cotterill’s men snatched a 1-1 home draw with Cardiff City before many of their players jetted off to play for their countries.

And a trip to east London against the newly-relegated Hammers will hardly have been top of their wish list on their return to Championship action.

The Blues, though, can take heart from West Ham’s home woes since their return to the second tier of English football.

Sam Allardyce’s side have yet to win in front of their own fans this season, with a draw and a defeat all they have mustered so far.

The pressure will be on the home side to rectify that situation, but how should Pompey line-up to add to Big Sam’s Upton Park misery?

Should Steve Cotterill use the same X1 that got a draw against fellow promotion-chasers Cardiff or should he go for a different approach?

Should he stick with two up front or revert back to a 4-5-1-cum-4-3-3 formation?

Or would you like to see new-signing Erik Huseklepp utilised in a wide role rather than as a main striker?

Whatever your views, post them below.
