Clubs in League One will soon be voting over whether or not to curtail the 2019/20 season.
If it is prematurely halted, then – under plans revealed by the EFL – Pompey should at least have the consolation of a play-off spot.
The unweighted points-per-game model would see them drop to fifth in the table and battle with Oxford, Wycombe and Fleetwood for a place in the Championship.
And Ronan Curtis is certainly hoping that the Blues will be able to return to the pitch and fight for promotion.
He said: “It’s been a couple of months and we’re now in May, but we still don’t know what’s going to happen.
“We were in a good position in the table, so hopefully we can get back and help get this club up a division.
"We got a bit of stick early on in the season and had to work hard to improve, so want the chance to get the job done."
“You can never look too far ahead in football, but we’re in League One and want to be in the Championship.
“We got a bit of stick early on in the season and had to work hard to improve, so want the chance to get the job done.
“It obviously wouldn’t be as good to play in an empty stadium without the crowd cheering us on – it’ll make it feel more like a training game.
“But we would have to just get on with it and everyone’s making sure to keep fit, so we’re ready to go when needed.”
Pompey will also hope they still get to visit the national stadium for the Leasing.com Trophy final against Salford.
Curtis said: “It was frustrating not to be able to go back to Wembley. We worked so hard for that, only to have it taken out of our hands.”
