Pompey, the pre-season favourites for promotion, have so far managed just one win at Fratton Park while losing to Oxford, Chesterfield and Saturday's opponents Fleetwood.

Town's winner had a touch of fortune about if after Jamille Matt's shot was well saved by John Sullivan only for the ball to bounce off Sonny Bradley and into the net.

Nevertheless, Whittingham is expecting a big improvement in upcoming home games against Rochdale, Bury and Wycombe.

He said: "We've had players sent off in two of those games and then conceded because of a ricochet in the other.

"We've now played the top three teams here, but we've got some good home games coming up and we've got a good chance of winning them."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
