Pompey’s punishing schedule does not get any easier as the Easter bank holiday weekend nears a conclusion.
Their third game in the space of under a week involves a long trip to the north-west to face Morecambe.
The home side have enjoyed an upturn in form in recent weeks to climb out of the League One drop zone.
But Danny Cowley is looking for a continuation of the form that has seen his men secure back-to-back wins over Rotherham and Lincoln since last Tuesday.
The Blues boss said: “They will obviously be buoyed by what was a very good victory in London at Charlton on Friday.
“We know the rules when you play the teams at the bottom of the table towards the end of the season.
"I can promise everyone that we’ll also be doing what we can to get a positive result and our motivation will be there."
“Morecambe will be extremely motivated, they’ll be battling and will do everything they can to try to win.
“We respect that, but we’re on a journey as well and have taken 28 points from our past 14 games, which is a really good record.
“I can promise everyone that we’ll also be doing what we can to get a positive result and our motivation will be there.
“We know that we’ll have a lot of supporters travelling all the way up there from the south coast to get behind us.
“The fact that they’re doing that and putting in so much effort over the Easter weekend means we have to empty the tank.
“We’re looking to produce a performance that reflects our values because we want to be the best version of ourselves.”
