Sounds like Pompey picked up a couple of injuries too. Hopefully that result, which will have really hurt them, leaves them still flat for Saturday.

In other news, what seemed an unlikely story anyway, Henrik Larrsson may not be taking charge at Southend.

Dunno, think I'd have preferred a Portsmouth win. How often do you see it: "They battered a Premier league side but then fell to the side bottom of their table a few days later."

More seriously, AFC Wimbledon - the Alpha Centauri to our sun in the League One universe, a mere 12 points distant - have suspended manager Wally Downes; he has been charged by the FA over betting. "Saturday’s match with Peterborough United will be managed by Glyn Hodges and the coaching staff."

:D

Lol Downes has so much baggage, it's crazy they hired him in the first place.

While I may be losing a smidgen of faith in our inevitable heroic parade to safety, it's worth noting a couple of interesting battles above us tomorrow: both our fellow drop-zone dwellers face teams in that gormless clump just above them: Wombletown (3pts) host Rochdale (10pts) while Southend (4pts) presumably charter a tug across the murky Thames Estuary to Gillingham (10pts). Difficult to judge the best outcome: wins for the clubs near us would be a blow (as opposed to helping us haul them in) but wins for the upper clubs would put them 20+ clear of us going into Monday's game. They can't both win, though, and that clump also includes Accy (10pts), Tranmere (9) and Pompey (9).
