Ross said: ‘We are pretty much at full strength, Aiden has benefited from the break we've given him, Lee and George had some minor issues but they'll be fine. Duncan Watmore, it will probably be a bit too soon for him.

‘‘When you have a week in between the last fixture and the play-offs the ability to find more strength and energy levels will be there.

‘Aiden will train tomorrow, he possibly could have trained today.’

Portsmouth will travel up to the North East for the first leg on Saturday, which will kick-off at 7.30pm.

The Blues will then host the Black Cats at Fratton Park for the reverse fixture next Thursday with a place in the League One play-off final at Wembley this month up for grabs.
