Sunderland man sends fired-up message ahead of Portsmouth clash



The great Sky Bet play-off games keep on coming this week as all eyes turn from Elland Road to Fratton Park tonight.

We saw Leeds and Derby play out a cracker last night as the two went hammer and tongs and many of us will be hoping for a similar sort of game as Portsmouth host Sunderland on the South Coast.

And, to that end, the travelling Mackems will hope that the away side once again progress onto a trip to Wembley with them leading the tie slenderly going into kick-off tonight.

In a late boost, too, Alim Ozturk had his red card overturned and is expected to feature at the heart of defence this evening, with him certainly seeming ready to go:

The Verdict

Ozturk has achieved a comeback similar to the likes of Derby this week and Liverpool and Spurs last week in the Champions League.

He has largely been branded a flop this season but in the last few weeks he’s suddenly become a rock at the back for Sunderland.

That’s been reflected by the joy expressed at his ban being overturned for this game and fans will hope he can play a key part in keeping their hosts quiet this evening.
