All you need to know about League Two clash
Pompey fans will not have fond memories of their last visit to Home Park just five months ago.
There was plenty of confidence going into the second leg of a play-off clash with Plymouth that was locked at 2-2.
Paul Cook’s side were perhaps unfortunate not to hold an advantage following a breathless Fratton encounter, while Jamille Matt was arguably fortunate to escape a ban for a headbutt on Michael Doyle.
But it proved to be one game too far for the injury-ravaged Blues, who cruelly conceded in the final minute in Devon.
Plymouth then suffered their own heartache 15 days later, losing 2-0 to AFC Wimbledon at Wembley to miss out on promotion.
Now both sides are trying to put that disappointment behind them and launch another push for promotion this season.
The Pilgrims have certainly made a bright start, sitting on top of the pile after 12 games – five points clear of their nearest challengers and eight ahead of fourth-placed Pompey.
They lost their opening two games against Luton and Carlisle, but are now on a 10-match unbeaten run that has included nine victories.
Adam Buxton (ankle) and Drew Talbot (hamstring) are both sidelined, while Noel Hunt (groin) remains a doubt.
Former Pompey duo Sonny Bradley and Jake Jervis are expected to feature for the hosts.
But Plymouth are without Ryan Brunt (knee), Paul-Arnold Garita (hamstring), Gary Sawyer (stomach) and Oscar Threlkeld (knee).
