Derby arrive at Fratton Park on Saturday, eyeing a Championship double over Pompey.
Steve Cotterill’s men will be hoping to kick on from an encouraging display at QPR, though, and will see it as an ideal fixture to kick-start the second half of their campaign.
Aaron Mokoena Greg Halford paired up in the centre of defence at Loftus Road.
Should they continue in the heart of the backline?
QPR’s playmaker – Adel Taarabt – scored the host’s first goal, thanks to an unfortunate gaffe from Jamie Ashdown.
Can Pompey’s number one bounce back in style with a clean sheet on Saturday?
Where do you think Joel Ward, who is rapidly becoming Pompey’s utility man, should play?
What formation should Cotterill adopt now he’s back on home turf?
And what do you reckon the final score will be?
