Charlton P-P Portsmouth: REACTION after League One game cancelled hour before kick-off
Pompey travel to Charlton aiming to get their League One automatic promotion charge back on track.
The Blues have lost their past two games against Hull City and Lincoln, meaning they’ve dropped to fifth in the table.
Things don’t get much easier for Kenny Jackett’s side, either, as they face another promotion rival in the sixth-placed Addicks.
Pompey will have to make-do without Jack Whatmough after the centre-back’s appeal for his red card against Lincoln was turned down.
That means Rasmus Nicolaisen will start in defence in Whatmough’s place and will be hoping to impress his boss.
Jackett will have to be at his tactical best against his Charlton’s boss Lee Bowyer, having lost all four matches when he’s faced his counterpart.

- Game off because of heavy pitch at The Valley
A quick turnaround with a date for the game being set.
Pompey will now travel to Charlton this Tuesday, February 2. It makes sense.
Kenny Jackett has had his say
That is a fair point!
A look at the heavy pitch
Another fixture for Pompey to rearrange
Fair to say this is not what Pompey needed amid a congested fixture list. It’s the second game of the season that’s fallen foul to the weather after the game at Accrington on January 2 was abandonded because of a frozen pitch.
