Pompey v Charlton: pre-match talking points

Have your say

Michael Appleton’s Pompey host West Ham at Fratton Park on Saturday and we want to know your views on the game.

The Hammers are challenging for automatic promotion but Appleton and his players are buoyed by the performance against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last time out.

Pompey have not tasted defeat at fortress Fratton since September, when they were beaten 3-2 by Peterborough.

In that time, Barnsley, Doncaster, Nottingham Forest, Coventry and Watford have all been defeated.

Loan signing Joe Mattock returns to boost the Pompey squad.

Should he come straight back in at left-back?

Who should make way for him, if Appleton is forced to reshuffle his defence due to injuries?

In attack, can Marko Futacs continue to torment Championship defences?

West Ham are the Pompey old boys club.

But will former Fratton men Freddie Piquionne, Papa Bouba Diop and Gary O’Neil & Co pose a threat to the Blues?

Whatever your views, post them below.
