Kenny Jackett's side visit Norwich on that date (5.30pm), while the Hatters go to Sheffield Wednesday. 

On current standings, Pompey's clash against the Hatters will be a top-of-the-table battle.

The Blues currently sit at the summit of the third tier on 51 points, with Luton one spot and one point behind.

Jackett's troops defeated the Hatters 1-0 on the opening day of the season at Fratton Park.
