Pompey switch their focus back to the League One promotion race after progressing in two other competitions over the past week.
Kenny Jackett’s side have home ties against Barnsley and Scunthorpe in the FA Cup and Leasing.com Trophy to look forward to later this month.
But it is the quest to climb the table that takes centre stage on Saturday, as AFC Wimbledon head to Fratton Park.
The Blues are just one point outside the play-off spots with half their fixtures remaining – and only six adrift of second position.
Their opponents, meanwhile, are more concerned with events at the other end of the division and trying to pull away from the danger zone.
Glyn Hodges is the man tasked with trying to avoid taking the battle to beat the drop to the final day for a second successive season.
He began the campaign as assistant manager, but took the top job after Wally Downes was charged by The FA for a breach of betting regulations.
Pompey were narrowly beaten when they visited Kingsmeadow back in October, courtesy of a last-gasp goal from Terell Thomas.
Cameron McGeehan could be handed his Pompey debut after completing a loan switch from Barnsley earlier in the week.
Fellow new signings Steve Seddon and Reeco Hackett-Fairchild will also be hoping to make their Fratton bows.
Lee Brown (Achilles), Ross McCrorie (hamstring), Bryn Morris (groin) and Ryan Williams (groin) are all still absent.
Brandon Haunstrup (meniscus) and Jack Whatmough (knee) are both back in training, but not ready to feature on Saturday.
AFC Wimbledon’s new loan defender Mads Bech Sorensen could make his first appearance after arriving from Brentford.
The visitors will be without Kwesi Appiah (ankle), Paul Kalambayi (ankle), Will Nightingale (hip), Adam Roscrow (thigh) and Anthony Wordsworth (calf).
