With the Blues having no recognised senior strikers available, Ronan Curtis looks set to be lead the line.
Curtis is back after missing last Saturday’s 2-1 win at Shrewsbury when on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.
He’s the only change from that New Meadow victory. Ben Close continues his Pompey revival and starts a second successive game in central midfield next to Tom Naylor.
Here’s what the Fratton faithful have made of the team on Twitter…
Good team! 3-1 pomp
Perfect side that
just promote us now
As expected but beautiful to see
Another Cowley masterclass incoming
We got to earn the right to win. League positions are irrelevant. It's on the day that counts. #PUP
Cracking Line Up slightly confused no attacking support on the bench, would have kept Jacobs on the subs bench and introduced Cannon back in! #Pompey Up the Blues!
Its definitely not the time to test academy players as we need to take each game seriously and no room for erorrs. #PUP
