Pompey head to Brighton on Saturday for a south coast derby, and we want to know your views on the game.
Michael Appleton’s side go into the clash rock bottom of the Championship table, following Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat at Reading.
And to prevent them being cut further adrift from the rest of the sides fighting against relegation, a third successive defeat will need to be avoided if the Blues are to stave off the threat of League One football next season.
With Appleton’s squad lacking depth, the Pompey boss is unable to introduce too many changes to the side who went down 1-0 at the Madejski Stadium.
Luke Varney and Aaron Mokoena came into the starting line-up at the expense of Marko Futacs and Tal Ben Haim for that defeat, but do you think both did enough to book a starting spot at the Amex Stadium?
Kelvin Etuhu was named among the subs at Reading without getting on to the pitch.
Would he be someone you would like to see back in the starting XI?
Or do you think Dave Kitson’s experience will stand the Blues in good stead against a team with play-off ambitions?
Whatever your views, post them below.
