Pompey will aim to record successive League One victories for the first time since the end of November when they host Doncaster on Saturday (3pm kick-off).
Danny Cowley’s troops got three points on the board by seeing off Burton on home soil earlier in the week.
Now they will want to build on that result against the side currently propping up the rest of the third tier.
Rovers are eight points adrift of safety, although their goal difference is also comfortably worse than the clubs they are trying to catch.
And yet the South Yorkshire outfit have enjoyed two impressive victories at MK Dons and Sunderland in their most recent away fixtures.
Those trips, however, represent their only two wins on the road, with Gary McSheffrey’s men having picked up just a single point beforehand.
It finished goalless when the sides met earlier in the campaign, with keeper Pontus Dahlberg – who has since departed – making a string of fine saves and keeping out a Shaun Williams spot-kick.
But Reece James’ second half strike ensured it was Doncaster who claimed all the points in last season’s Fratton contest.
Pompey are without Kieron Freeman (ankle) and Shaun Williams (back), while Jayden Reid (knee) and Liam Vincent (shin) remain sidelined.
Joe Morrell is still suspended for two more fixtures following his harsh red card at Oxford last week.
Blues academy graduate Ben Close will not play for Doncaster again this season after undergoing knee surgery.
The visitors are also without Tom Anderson (foot), John Bostock (ankle), Ethan Galbraith (calf), Cameron John (back), Fejiri Okenabirhie (Achilles) and Jon Taylor (ankle), while Tommy Rowe (ankle) is a doubt.
