It is the stage of the season when many footballers will be starting to think about relaxing on a beach.
For others, however, it is the excitement of a promotion race or battle to beat the drop that has their focus.
Pompey are, fortunately, in the former category and must beat Peterborough this evening to remain in contention for a top-two finish.
Jamal Lowe welcomes the pressure that comes with it and is happy to see the Blues continue to improve.
“It’s always nice to have something to play for in the closing week of the season,” he says in the official matchday magazine for tonight’s match, “although it’s obviously not as fun for those who are fighting for their lives.
"You’d rather have pressure than be without it and it only makes the victories sweeter."
“Then there those who are already safe or cannot go up and they’re just waiting for the summer to start.
“We’ve got something to aim for, though, and that’s brilliant. You’d rather have pressure than be without it and it only makes the victories sweeter.
“From getting out of League Two and now going for another promotion, it shows the direction this club is moving in and we’re constantly trying to better ourselves each year.”
To read the full interview – where Lowe also discusses his own personal journey from non-league to hopefully the Championship – make sure to buy a copy of the magazine.
Also in issue 28, Christian Burgess reveals his firsts and lasts and Brett Pitman has his general knowledge put to the test.
Fans can read exclusive columns from Mark Catlin, Kenny Jackett and Pitman, while we continue to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Pompey’s first top-flight title success with a detailed look at the 1948/49 campaign.
There is also an in-depth analysis of Peterborough, an interview with former Blues and Posh striker Colin Garwood and much, much more in a packed 84 pages.
And remember not to miss an issue this season, with the spine of magazine revealing a fantastic picture as the campaign progresses.
