David Nugent: Once a £6m signing but still a striker who looks more comfortable in the Championship than he ever did in the Premier League.
Nugent is part of a very credible starting XI at Pompey but is also an example of the sort of investment that left the club on its knees in the summer.
John Utaka, the Nigerian international signed for 7m from Rennes, is another.
But Nugent is a known quantity at this level and his classy finish in the 3-3 draw on December 28 reiterated the talent which earned him so much attention at Preston.
His tally this term stands at a modest eight but he is not the player to gift chances to.
