There is everything to play for at the Kassam Stadium this evening, as Pompey visit Oxford in the second leg of the League One play-offs (5pm kick-off).
It finished all square on the south coast on Friday, with Ronan Curtis’ deserved opener cancelled out by Marcus Browne.
But Kenny Jackett’s side were left frustrated that a number of shouts for penalties were controversially dismissed.
The result did, however, ensure that the Blues finished their league campaign unbeaten at Fratton Park.
Now they will look to win at a United side who also have an impressive record, with only three sides claiming maximum points in Oxfordshire.
With the away goal rule not used in the play-offs, a draw would ensure the tie went to extra-time, with penalties an option if the teams still cannot be separated.
A global pandemic ensured a meeting at Oxford during the regular league season was ultimately cancelled.
But there was a 2-2 draw in the Leasing.com Trophy, with Pompey winning a bonus point shoot-out to top the group.
Despite playing for the first time in almost four months, Pompey have no injury concerns following the first leg.
