Vital Leeds looks at the form of both Portsmouth and Leeds United going into today`s game at Fratton Park.
Pompey have been thrown into a relegation battle after having ten points deducted for going into administration last week.
Last time out, they were beaten 2-0 at Barnsley and they have picked up just one point from their last four games.
They have won just one of their last eight games in league and cup when they won 3-0 at Peterborough United last month.
In their last home game, they were beaten 1-0 by Ipswich.
They have now lost their last two home games having gone seven games without defeat at home prior to this.
So far this season at home, they have won seven, drawn three and lost four.
Portsmouth have conceded just 11 goals at home this season, with just Birmingham (6) and Crystal Palace (10) having better records.
They are currently in 22nd place with 25 points from 31 games.
Recent home form: DWDWLL
New manager Neil Warnock will take charge of his first game in charge of Leeds this afternoon.
In Leeds last game, they came from 2-0 down to beat Doncaster Rovers 3-2 at Elland Road last Saturday.
Last week`s comeback win over Doncaster, means they have now picked up twenty points this season from losing positions with only Blackpool (23) having a better record.
Luciano Becchio`s 99th minute winner against Doncaster means they have now scored 10 goals this season in time added on at the end of a game.
Last time out away from home, they were beaten 2-1 at Coventry City.
Leeds are aiming to win two games in a row for the first time since the end of November and beginning of December when they beat Nottingham Forest and Millwall.
So far this season on their travels, Leeds have won six, drawn four and lost six.
Leeds along with Blackpool have scored the most goals away from home in the championship this season with both clubs scoring 27 times.
Leeds have scored in their last nine championship games home and away.
They have won just one of their last seven away games when they beat Bristol City 3-0 last month.
Leeds are currently in tenth place with 48 points from 32 games.
Recent away form: LLLDWL
