Portsmouth 0 Hull 4 match centre - HIGHLIGHTS as Blues suffer woeful defeat
Pompey entertain Hull today knowing they can overtake the league leaders once again in the standings.
The Blues achieved that back in December, when they beat Grant McCann’s side 2-0 at the KCOM Stadium.
With only two League One games played since, Pompey are understandably no longer top of the pile, sitting third.
However, all that can change come 5pm this evening – with another victory over the Tigers.
Although, let’s not forget about second-placed Lincoln, who are at home to Northampton today.
Fingers crossed Blues Bryn Morris can do his parent club a favour as he prepares to make his loan debut for the Cobblers at Sincil Bank.
Back to Fratton Park, however, and you can following today’s action by simply staying tuned to our live match runner.
We’ll be here right until the lights go out at PO4, with all the match developments and reaction after the final whistle.
