Pompey defeated Peterborough 1-0 on Tuesday night to book their spot in the last four. 

That success put them within one victory of reaching Wembley – but first the Blues must overcome Bury.

Ryan Lowe’s side sit second in League Two and delivered a 5-2 success over Oxford in the quarter-finals. 

The winner of the tie will set up an appearance at the national stadium against either Bristol Rovers or Sunderland.
