The Blues’ trip to The Valley on Saturday was postponed just an hour before kick-off after referee Bobby Madley deemed the pitch unplayable.

Both sides swiftly rearranged for this evening and Kenny Jackett’s men are aiming for three points.

Pompey have lost their past two league games against Hull City and Lincoln, meaning they’ve dropped to fifth in the table.
