Match day preview.

Today we will be looking to maintain the decent start we have had to the season when we take on Portsmouth at Eastlands. You would have to be confident of the three points given the form we have displayed at this early stage and the not too confident start to the campaign that Pompey have made, with them having scraped only a point against ten-man Villa on Wednesday night.
Will Pearce tinker with the side? I think a likely change will be Nedum Onouha replacing Stephen Jordan at the back with Sylvain Distin still out (along with Robbie Fowler) but I don't foresee any changes in either midfield or attack.
As for Portsmouth, manager Alain Perrin has tinkered with the side over the summer, bringing in Robert, Westerveld and O'Brien whilst losing the likes of Berger and Kamara (not Chris by the way).
Portsmouth shouldn't pose too much of a problem on their travels, with their most interesting feature likely to be their 'colourful' away kit. A game that we should be looking to win and are likely to do so.
Prediction: City 2 Portsmouth 0.
