The Peterborough manager takes his side to Pompey for the first time today and wants to bring the curtain down on his side’s season with a victory.

Both teams have missed out on a League One play-off place but are looking to finish as high in the table as possible.

A victory for Kenny Jackett’s side would see them leapfrog the Posh and end the campaign in eighth.

But a draw for Peterborough would be enough for them to remain where they are.

Evans is looking forward to the encounter and wants to reward the travelling Posh fans with a final-day success

He told the club’s website: ‘Portsmouth are the biggest club in the division for me.

‘I have not taken a side to Fratton Park before and I am looking forward to it.

‘It will be a big crowd, a big atmosphere and a real test for my players.

‘I want to win the game and finish as high as we possibly can and I want to get the three points for the 550+ Posh fans making the trip.’
