Fratton Park is all set for a hectic period of hosting three matches in the space of just eight days – starting with tonight’s match against Wycombe (7.45pm kick-off).

The home side should be playing with plenty of confidence after extending their unbeaten start to the League One campaign with a weekend win at Wigan.

But their opponents make the relatively short trip down to the south coast enjoying their own run of good form.

Since opening the season with back-to-back defeats against Exeter and Lincoln, the Chairboys have lost just one of the following seven games.

Luke Leahy’s penalty and a Sam Vokes strike secured a 2-0 victory over Carlisle on home soil on Saturday, as they capitalised on an early red card for visiting keeper Jökull Andrésson.

It leaves Matt Bloomfield’s men sitting ninth in the standings – six points behind the Blues having played one game fewer.

The Wanderers boss will see some familiar faces this evening, having played alongside both John Mousinho and Marlon Pack at Adams Park.

It finished 2-2 when these sides met at Fratton Park on the final day of last season, with Pack and Paddy Lane on target for the hosts.

Josh Dockerill (knee), Tom Lowery (knee), Connor Ogilvie (groin) and Anthony Scully (knee) all remain sidelined for Pompey.

The hosts are sweating on the fitness of Marlon Pack, who took a knock to the ankle at Wigan, while Kusini Yengi has returned to full fitness following his own ankle injury.

Jack Grimmer, Joe Jacobson and Jason McCarthy are all out for Wycombe, while there are doubts over Kane Vincent-Young and former Blues loanee David Wheeler.

Read the thoughts of John Mousinho and Jack Sparkes ahead of the game.
