Pompey will try to book their spot in the third round of the Carabao Cup when they visit QPR this evening.
You have to go back to the 2010/11 campaign to find the last time that happened, with Steve Cotterill the man in charge.
They saw off Stevenage and Crystal Palace – the latter on penalties – that season before suffering a narrow home defeat to Leicester.
But the Blues got their revenge on the Foxes just three days later by thrashing them 6-1 in a Championship encounter.
Their next opponents are currently sitting 12th in the second tier standings at this early stage, having collected seven points from five matches.
Rangers were, unlike their visitors, in action at the weekend, battling from behind to beat Wigan 3-1 on home soil.
Mark Warburton’s men required spot-kicks to get this far in the Carabao Cup, seeing off Bristol City following a 3-3 draw.
And fans are reminded that there is no extra-time if the sides cannot be separated after 90 minutes tonight, with the tie going straight to a shoot-out.
The victors will almost immediately discover who they face next, with the draw taking place live on Sky Sports this evening.
Lee Brown is set for a spell of six weeks on the sidelines after suffering an Achilles injury in the last match against Coventry.
Brun Morris (groin) and Jack Whatmough (knee) are both out, while Oli Hawkins (foot) and Ryan Williams (quad) are expected to resume training towards the end of the week.
QPR could ring the changes, with on-loan Brighton striker Jan Mlakar and second choice keeper Liam Kelly among those hoping for a chance.
However, the hosts will be without the injured trio of Luke Amos (hamstring), Geoff Cameron (hamstring) and Lee Wallace (hip).
