The most recent month of the English Championship season has seen a much resurgent Portsmouth FC, keen to prove the doubters wrong.
Relegated from the English Premier League last season following a much talked about financial collapse, the outlook for this season was strangely uncertain from the outset.

A 2-1 loss this weekend to a resurgent Bristol City put a halt to a run of six consecutive league wins and six consecutive league clean sheets.
But with safety from relegation this season all but secured and many suggesting a late push for the play-off places still on the cards, what needs to be done in order to see the team return to the Premier League?
