Portsmouth got their League Cup campaign off to a flying start on Saturday, beating Dagenham and Redbridge 3-0 on home turf thanks to 3 second half goals. Their 3-0 win on Saturday certainly promises more than their 16th place finish in League Two last season, and their numerous loan signings indicate that they are looking for a much more comfortable league campaign in the coming season. But Derby County are unlikely to lie down and let Portsmouth win, and they have a strong squad to make a run for the League Cup this season. Their goalless draw against Bolton on Saturday was a bit of a drab and disappointing way to start the season, especially considering the wealth of attacking players that have been brought in this summer. I think Derby County's squad is just too strong for the likes of Portsmouth, who are still trying to rebuild their squad after the massive turnaround of players in the summer.
