The opening day of the season is only days away, but who will Pompey boss Paul Cook name in his starting XI for Saturday’s game against Dagenham & Redbridge?

The new manager has had a busy pre-season, after overhauling the squad he inherited.

Twelve players have arrived through the door at Fratton Park, while 14 have headed the other way as Cook attempts assemble a squad he is happy with for the League Two season ahead.

That means an entirely new-look side could be named as the Blues attempt to mount a bid for promotion this term.

But, stepping into the manager’s shoes, who would be your XI to start the game against the Daggers?

Well, here’s your chance to do just that.

We want you to name your team for the game against Dagenham & Redbridge following the link provided.

With Cook favouring a 4-2-3-1 formation, we want you to pick your goalkeeper for the game, four defenders, two holding midfielders, three aattacking midfielders and a lone striker.

Remember, you must pick the number of players from each position that suits the formation.

We will take note of the teams registered and post Pompey fans’ ideal starting XI here at portsmouth.co.uk before kick-off on Saturday.
