It seems quite clear watching BG's preview of the game, that he is in favour of the bigger clubs having their youth teams in this competition. Perhaps not surprising considering his past history of coaching both Palace's and West Brom's youngsters.
BG has confirmed Both our new youngsters will be involved, so I'll be watching on I follow with interest.
It'll be a bit of a disaster if BG doesn't pick up his first win, particularly looking at the following few games as they all look tougher. DC hasn't done us a favour tonight so Pompey are still in the trophy.
Anybody know what the score is with Little, fitness wise, as he doesn't even get a mention in BG's latest interview?
Just seen that Portsmouth have won at Walsall with Ellis getting the winner late on against DC's side.
It was 2-0 before Walsall got one back?
It looks like after Pompey we're now the biggest supported side still left in the trophy if we win tomorrow, as all the rest are unlikely to take many to Wembley, Exeter, Accrington, Newport, Salford, Leicester U21 & Scunthorpe/Man C U21.
Do think BG will definitely get his first win and hopefully with a clean sheet so I will go for 3-0 as our 2 exciting new boys involved.
Think or just hope, as if any team can lose at home to the bottom team in L1 it's us from past experience! Looking at which teams are still left in the draw then if we can avoid Pompey, assuming Man C aren't taking it too seriously, then we must now have our easiest chance ever of getting to the final.
