After a break for international fixtures, Pompey fans can now look forward to a couple of big games in quick succession.

Ahead of a home clash with fellow promotion hopefuls Derby on Tuesday evening, John Mousinho’s men visit Wycombe on Good Friday (3pm kick-off).

They go there with the knowledge that 13 points from the final seven fixtures would be enough to guarantee a place in the Championship.

Their opponents appear to have little left to play for except pride, with the Chairboys sat in 13th position in the League One standings.

Matt Bloomfield’s outfit are 13 points adrift of the final play-off spot and a comfortable 14 clear of the drop zone.

But they have not been playing like a side with one eye on the beach in recent weeks and go into the game on the back of three successive wins.

That is probably because everyone wants to impress the boss ahead of a trip to Wembley next month, when Wanderers take on Peterborough in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy final.

Pompey lost 2-0 when they made the relatively short trip to Adams Park last season, but came out on top at Fratton Park earlier in the current campaign.

It took a late goal from Conor Shaughnessy to secure the points, however, after Colby Bishop had cancelled out Josh Scowen’s opener for the visitors.

Paddy Lane and Joe Rafferty have overcome the illnesses that forced them to miss the Peterborough game.

Tino Anjorin and Ben Stevenson are also available again after recovering from hamstring and knee problems respectively.

The game is likely to come too soon for Connor Ogilvie (knee) and Christian Saydee (hamstring), who have only recently returned to training.

Terry Devlin (shoulder), Josh Dockerill (knee), Callum Lang (ankle), Tom Lowery (hamstring), Tom McIntyre (ankle), Joe Morrell (knee), Regan Poole (knee), Anthony Scully (ankle) and Alex Robertson (hamstring) are all still out.

David Wheeler could feature for Wycombe against his former club after completing a three-match suspension.
