First time we've played you down here and it's not on the box. Looking forward to it, both teams will be up for it and there'll be a good crowd. I suspect we'll start the same 11 as last night, apart from Jervis who went off with an injury just 5 minutes in. You're playing tonight which could be a factor later on into the game with fatigue. Can't wait!

Would definitely take a point, not really sure what to make of Plymouth over the summer.

Isn't it embarrassing that Plymouth keep on trying to cling onto Portsmouth and create a derby with them.

Get over it guys, you're not a big club, and Pompey don't care about you.

Not really a derby is it.... Portsmouth are big club, compared to Plymouth who are just a club. (Don't even deserve that status frankly.)

Always be known as the "Dockyard Derby" , at least they sell out their allocation :)

I know - they have the pathetic air of the little kid pulling on the big kid's trousers wailing, "Me! Me! Notice Me!"

Very sad.

Should be an interesting game. The transformation under Cook is already clear to see but we've been dreadful away from home for years and this is one of the toughest away games of the season potentially.

I'll go for a 1-1 draw.

Looking forward to this one. Pompey are the only team in this league to bring a sizable away allocation so the Atmosphere should be decent. 2 - 2 will be my shout with Pompey equalising late on

Some start to the season for Pompey. Going to take some stopping this season, once a club like that gets momentum built up...

I hope you are right we look pretty solid this season so far . The ref wasent great for either team today ( i know we got 2 pens lol) I only heard it on the radio but they said he was shocking for both teams.

Yeah he wasn't great, but they both looked like pens to me today.

The most positive thing to come out of this game from our point of view is the way we kept hold of the ball at times, especially in the second half which didn't see Plymouth get a sniff. We weren't much of an attacking force ourselves, to be fair, but those two fouls in the box proved costly for them and I think we just about deserved to win in the end.

No fans actually regard this as a derby, just the media team so they can sell more tickets. I guess it's kind of like Argyle and Exeters Derby though, we are just a club, while Exeter are a tinpot club.
