The former Huddersfield and Lincoln manager yesterday informed Mark Catlin he would be willing to take on the role for the remaining 12 games.

That short-term offer had put off other targets, including Daniel Stendel and Neil Harris, who would have considered a longer deal.

However, Cowley is backing himself to reinvigorate the Blues during the remaining few months of the campaign.

The 42-year-old has won six promotions in his career, while was able to rescue Huddersfield and last season keep them in the Championship.

It is understood Cowley will be speaking to owner Michael Eisner and the Blues board this afternoon.

If matters go to plan, he will take Pompey training tomorrow ahead of Saturday’s visit of Ipswich.

Pompey are currently 10th in League One, three points adrift of the play-offs.
