Evans is keen to get the ABAX Stadium '˜rocking' as both teams set out to maintain their unbeaten starts to the season.

The Posh go into the game sitting at the summit of League One '“ two points ahead of the second-placed Blues in the table.

Pompey fans have snapped up more than 2,100 tickets for the all-ticket fixture, after selling out their initial allocation of 1,650, as they bid to get behind their team's bid for promotion.
