We take a look at the captain's performance against Ipswich.
With that in mind, we thought that we'd keep a close eye on the striker in action in Tuesday pre-season friendly at home to Ipswich Town and Kieran Baldwin has carried out our latest Player Watch.
It was a game of few clear cut chances for Porter, but his leadership and work rate from the front was a glimpse of what to expect from the skipper this season.
Porter found himself up against an experienced centre half pairing for Ipswich in the form of Christophe Berra and Tommy Smith, but neither defender found it easy to deal with the big centre forward.
Throughout the first half, Porter found himself contesting lots of aerial battles and, to his credit, he won the majority and really put the Town defence under pressure.
Ipswich took the lead just before half time but after the interval Porter had more support with Alex Gilbey and George Moncur pushing further on, which meant that the Porter's hold up play was more effective.
Despite not having any opportunities for himself second half he still proved a real threat aerially and worked tirelessly across the pitch as he chased balls into the channels.
Porter doing what he does best, controlling a long ball on his chest and he showed great awareness to turn and clip a great ball down the right channel for Dion Sembie-Ferris to chase and, two passes later, Gavin Massey headed home a Jack Curtis cross.
Porter's performance in this match showed why he will be such an important player to the U's this season.
