Pompey will aim to set a new club record when they host Charlton under the Fratton floodlights this evening.
Kenny Jackett’s side are looking to secure an impressive ninth successive competitive victory in all competitions.
This latest fixture was due to be played last month, only to be postponed when the visitors received three international call-ups.
It is the only game taking place in League One tonight, so gives the Blues a chance to stretch their lead at the top of the table to nine points.
And the home side know that simply avoiding defeat will ensure they are sitting at the summit at Christmas.
Their opponents also have promotion ambitions, having lost to Shrewsbury in the play-offs at the end of last season.
But a four-match winning run in the league was ended by Saturday’s defeat at Blackpool, which saw Charlton drop out of the top six.
A point tonight would see them return there, however, ahead of back-to-back home matches against AFC Wimbledon and Gillingham.
Pompey were beaten 1-0 when the sides met at Fratton Park last term, although did win by that scoreline at The Valley in both the league and Checkatrade Trophy.
David Wheeler (hamstring) is sidelined and although Dion Donohue has returned to full training, he will feature for the reserve team at Bournemouth this afternoon.
The visitors will be without Josh Cullen (shoulder), Darren Pratley (knee) and Jamie Ward (groin), while Naby Sarry is expected to replace teenager Toby Stevenson at left-back.

At Fratton Park
