Pompey will look to get their home form back on track when they face Fleetwood at Fratton Park this weekend.
Kenny Jackett’s side have been in imperious form on the road, but collected just two points from the last three games on home soil.
But they are coming up against a Cod Army outfit that have suffered a solitary defeat on their league travels this term.
Their total of two away goals conceded is – along with Blackpool – the lowest in the third tier, while there have been a healthy tally of 12 going in at the other end.
Joey Barton’s troops have enjoyed some impressive results, with 5-0 and 4-0 routs of Scunthorpe and Doncaster respectively.
And they go into Saturday’s contest on the back of successive league wins, although there was a Checkatrade Trophy loss sandwiched between them.
There have been just four previous meetings between Pompey and Fleetwood, with both sides securing two triumphs each.
But the Blues came out on top in the last Fratton clash in September 17, with braces for Brett Pitman and Jamal Lowe sealing a comfortable 4-1 success.
Andre Green (knee) and David Wheeler (ankle) are still missing for Pompey, with Danny Rose (face) also like to miss out.
The hosts can call upon the services of Ronan Curtis again, however, with the forward returning from Republic of Ireland international duty.
Fleetwood have doubts over top scorer Ched Evans (shoulder), James Husband (hamstring) and Conor McAleny (hamstring), with James Wallace (hamstring) also injured.
