You will do well to gain a point at FP. They are getting more supporters now as their form has shown good improvement and is always vocal.

Will be hard but they are missing Lawrence who seems to have been their danger man in recent weeks.

Actually looking forward to this game, one of the first Rovers games I can remember going to was the 2-0 Rovers win in 1979. It was on a Friday night and the win won Billy Bremner the manager of the month award. Joe Laidlaw who I think also played for Pompey scored one of the goals.
