With just five Fratton fixtures remaining this season, Pompey have yet to taste defeat on home soil in the league.

It is an enviable record that only world champions Liverpool can also boast from the top four tiers of the English game.

Fellow promotion chasers Fleetwood will fancy their chances of breaking it, though, as they take an 11-match unbeaten run into tonight’s contest.

And after suffering defeat at high-flying Peterborough on Saturday, Andy Cannon is happy to be back on familiar ground.

The midfielder said: “We’ve got three big home games coming up and we’ve got to be looking to win every one of them.

“It’s the final stages of the season that we’re in now and so good results in these matches would set us up nicely.

“Our record at Fratton Park has been really positive and we want to make sure that continues, while also sorting out the away results.

“We’re pleased with the chance to get straight back out on the pitch after the result at the weekend and look to put things right.

“On a personal level, I’m hoping that I can offer a bit more in my performances and show everyone what I can do.

“Like all of us here, I want be a Championship player at the end of the season and we’re hungry to achieve success.”

Fleetwood are only behind the Blues on goal difference and won 1-0 when the sides met on the Fylde coast last month.

Cannon said: “I was injured for that game up there, but did play in the FA Cup tie and know they’ve got some good players.

“They are where they are in the table for a reason and so we’ll have to work hard in order to come out on top.”
