It is a feat that Pompey have not managed to achieve so far this season.
But Danny Cowley will hope to lead the Blues to a fourth successive League One victory when they visit Wigan on Easter Monday.
The new head coach has enjoyed a 100 per cent start to his Fratton career, with wins over Ipswich, Shrewsbury and Rochdale.
Now they face a Latics side full of cheer after recent off-field developments, but with plenty of work to do on the pitch to preserve their third tier status.
Former Pompey manager Paul Cook left at the end of last season after a 12-point deduction for entering administration saw them relegated from the Championship.
Another familiar face to those on Portsea Island took his place, with assistant Leam Richardson stepping up to take the top job.
His hands have undoubtedly been tied by the club’s financial issues and they currently find themselves 22nd in the table – two points adrift of safety.
But Wigan fans recently received the good news that a takeover by a consortium led by Bahraini businessman Abdulrahman Al-Jasmi had gone through.
It was the men from Greater Manchester who claimed the points when the sides met at Fratton Park earlier in the season, as Ellis Harrison’s late strike proved no more than a consolation.
The most recent DW Stadium clash finished all square in August 2017, with Conor Chaplin cancelling out Ivan Toney’s opener in a contest that saw both teams finish with 10 men.
John Marquis serves the second match of his three-game ban, while Alex Bass (foot), Ellis Harrison (knee) and Jordy Hiwula (ankle) remain sidelined.
Gavin Massey is expected to miss out for the hosts after injuring his hamstring in last month’s draw at AFC Wimbledon.
