Match Preview

Nugent wait for Pompey Portsmouth striker David Nugent needs a late fitness test ahead of the visit of Cardiff. Nugent scored his first Pompey goal since February 2009 in Tuesday's Carling Cup win over Crystal Palace, but twisted his ankle in the process and had to leave the field. Boss Steve Cotterill have to check on John Utaka as well after the frontman sat out in midweek with a hamstring strain. And Cotterill is also waiting on a third forward, veteran Nigerian star Kanu, who could finally be about to resolve his contract wrangle with the club and would therefore be available for the first time this season. Skipper Marc Wilson is set to play his last game for Pompey with Stoke leading the chase for his signature ahead of Tuesday's transfer deadline. Cardiff's new striker Andy Keogh could make his debut. The Republic of Ireland international joined Dave Jones' men on a season-long loan from Wolves on Wednesday and he could parter Craig Bellamy in attack after the Welshman was rested for Cardiff's 2-1 defeat to Peterborough. However, Cardiff are counting the cost of their Carling Cup defeat to Posh. Midfield duo Seyi Olofinjana (eye) and his replacement Stephen McPhail both went off injured in the 2-1 defeat and are both doubts. Striker Michael Chopra, Darcy Blake (both ankle) and fellow defender Kevin McNaughton (hamstring) all picked up injuries in the Welsh outfit's 4-0 win over Doncaster in their last league outing and the trio are all unlikely to feature against Pompey. Midfielder Jason Koumas played the full 90 minutes for the first time in seven months at London Road so will probably not be risked as he works his way back to full fitness.

Match Report

Bothroyd has Bluebirds flying Jay Bothroyd fired Cardiff joint top of the npower Championship as Portsmouth were swept aside 2-0 at Fratton Park. Bothroyd forced an own goal from Hayden Mullins before the interval and doubled the lead early in the second half thanks to some more calamitous Pompey defending. These two sides met in the FA Cup final little more than two years ago but are heading in different directions these days. Pompey, who won that Wembley encounter, are still in administration and could name just four substitutes again while Cardiff, with loan signing Craig Bellamy running the show, are dreaming of the Barclays Premier League. The hosts actually made a bright start and Marc Wilson, in what is expected to be his last game for the club before a move to the top flight, drilled a 10th-minute free-kick which David Marshall did well to keep out. Moments later the hosts got their first taste of Bellamy's threat when he fed Chris Burke and then tore into the penalty area to meet the winger's cross, only to fire narrowly wide. John Utaka, back in the Pompey attack after injury, fired a shot too high and Ibrahima Sonko headed over the crossbar. But it was Cardiff who went ahead eight minutes before the break after Wilson uncharacteristically lost possession in the middle of the park. Burke scampered clear and crossed into the area where the ball found its way into the net off the shin of Mullins, under pressure from Bothroyd. Marshall preserved City's lead shortly before the break with a fine save from David Nugent's drive. Mark Hudson headed Peter Whittingham's corner narrowly over the top at the start of the second half, but Cardiff did not have to wait long to double their advantage. They were gifted the goal by another mix-up in the Pompey defence which left Bothroyd with an open net to tuck away his sixth goal of the season in the 49th minute. Utaka sent a lob over the crossbar and Nugent fired wide of Marshall's goal, but in truth the hosts were rapidly running out ideas, and steam, with Cardiff cruising to victory. They could even afford to give Bellamy an early finish, the Wales skipper receiving a standing ovation from the visiting fans with 12 minutes remaining. Bellamy's replacement Andy Keogh thought he had marked his debut with a goal but an offside flag curtailed his celebrations.
