POMPEY host Leeds at Fratton Park on Saturday.

Michael Appleton’s men will be looking for three points to boost their bid for Championship survival.

Defeat at Barnsley last weekend coupled with the points deduction has piled on the pressure.

Liam Lawrence is expected to miss the game, with his latest calf problem.

The Blues skipper is targeting the Middlesbrough match on March 3 for his return.

Kelvin Etuhu, Luke Varney and David Norris are all injured while Kanu and Greg Halford are also struggling.

Appleton will, though, be able to call on West Brom man George Thorne, who is confident he will get better and better with match time at Pompey.

In attack, following Dave Kitson’s red card at Barnsley, Marko Futacs and Erik Huseklepp may be tasked with carrying the goal threat.

But can Pompey triumph in adversity and see off Neil Warnock’s Leeds?
