Pompey bring the curtain down on the 2017/18 campaign by welcoming Peterborough to the sunny south coast (5.30pm kick-off).
And it is fair to say that both sets of supporters will perhaps be wondering what might have been as they take to their seats.
It looked at one point like this evening’s contest could be a ‘winner takes all’ clash in the race for the play-offs.
But with both sides enduring a poor past few weeks, it has now become the rather more underwhelming ‘battle for eighth place’.
Three points for the Blues would see them finish in that position – a credible achievement for their first season back in League One. However, defeat could see them end up as low as 12th.
Their opponents are certainly an attacking threat, with only three sides in this division scoring more goals than the Posh this term.
A lot of that is down to the prolific form of Jack Marriott, whose 27 strikes (33 in all competitions) will surely deny Brett Pitman the Golden Boot.
Pompey were beaten 2-1 at London Road back in November, but won the last meeting at Fratton Park, with Miles Storey’s early goal settling a League Cup tie in August 2014.
Alex Bass is a doubt with an ankle injury, although it failed to prevent him sitting on the bench at Bury last week.
Pompey are still without Stephen Henderson (groin), Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain (leg), Danny Rose (leg), Anton Walkes (hamstring) and Jack Whatmough (leg).
The visitors have Junior Morias, Alex Penny and Ryan Tafazolli all out, but Marcus Maddison came through last week’s game against Fleetwood unscathed following a spell on the sidelines.
