Match Preview

Pompey check on winger Portsmouth will check on Liam Lawrence ahead of the home clash with Watford. The on-loan Stoke winger, who has scored four goals this season, was forced to miss the Republic of Ireland's 1-1 draw with Slovakia on Tuesday night after suffering a leg injury against Russia four days earlier. Hermann Hreidarsson could make his first appearance in the Pompey squad this season. The Iceland defender ruptured his Achilles against Tottenham last March but is on the comeback trail, having been involved with his international squad last week, and could be named on the bench. Striker Danny Webber, who damaged knee ligaments in the same match as Hreidarsson, is another month away from returning. Youngsters Tom Kilbey (knee) and Billy Goddard (shin) are still on the sidelines. Ross Jenkins is Watford's only injury concern as they head to the south coast. The midfielder has tweaked an ankle in training and is doubtful ahead of the Fratton Park clash, with his fitness being monitored closely. Boss Malky Mackay has an otherwise fully-fit squad at his disposal as the Hornets chase a sixth successive Championship victory. In-form striker Marvin Sordell had to be taken off at half-time of the win at Sheffield United last time out after taking a kick but the international break has allowed him time to recover and he is expected to lead the line. The game represents the first meeting between the two clubs since 2007, when it was a Premier League fixture, with Watford running out 4-2 winners.

Match Report

Brown settles thriller for Pompey Michael Brown scored his third goal of the season to secure npower Championship strugglers Portsmouth a thrilling 3-2 victory at home to high-flying Watford. Hayden Mullins scored his second goal in three games to put Pompey ahead in the 17th minute but the Hornets hit back with two second-half goals from Martin Taylor and substitute Stephen McGinn. Yet the spirited hosts drew level through on-loan Stoke forward Dave Kitson and Brown struck a long-range winner with 10 minutes remaining. Both sides began the match in lively fashion and in the third minute Watford went close to opening the scoring when defender Adrian Mariappa found the space to hit a shot from 12 yards which flew over the crossbar. Yet Pompey steadied themselves and fashioned a decent opening in the ninth minute when midfielder Liam Lawrence drilled a right-foot shot wide from 12 yards. Lawrence went close again five minutes later before Portsmouth's pressure told in the 17th minute when Mullins struck from distance. Having collected a pass from Lawrence, Mullins unleashed a superb right-foot shot which flew into the top corner from 30 yards out. The Hornets were dealt another blow moments later when midfielder Don Cowie succumbed to injury and was replaced by McGinn. Watford midfielder John Eustace tried his luck from distance in the 26th minute and Jordon Mutch also went close with a 30-yard strike. However, the hosts were not without chances themselves and midfielder Nadir Ciftci hit a swerving 35-yard shot which sailed narrowly past Scott Loach`s goal. Shortly before half-time, David Nugent rifled a shot from 18 yards just wide as Pompey failed to find a second goal. Watford grew as an attacking force after the restart as Danny Graham drew a smart stop from Jamie Ashdown in the 50th minute when his 12-yard strike was repelled from the Pompey goalkeeper. In the 54th minute, Taylor showed his eye for goal with a 12-yard shot which drew another decent save from Ashdown. In the 66th minute, Watford drew level when Taylor headed home unmarked from a corner by Mutch. Three minutes later, the visitors were in front as McGinn connected with Michael Bryan`s cross and fired home right-footed from six yards out. Remarkably, Portsmouth were level two minutes later as Kitson collected possession 20 yards from goal and fired a low right-foot shot into the bottom corner. And with 10 minutes remaining, Fratton Park went wild as Portsmouth scored a winning goal through Brown, who fired a right-foot into the bottom corner from 18 yards.
