The winger has been sidelined since picking up a knee injury at Sunderland in October.

He’s missed 11 games as a result – but this weekend’s trip to Portman Road could see him make his long-awaited return.

Jacobs was starting to show why he was brought to Fratton Park on a free transfer following his release from Wigan.

The 29-year-old had been keeping Ronan Curtis out of the side prior to his injury, which saw him removed from the action at the Stadium of Light after 55 minutes.

However, since then Curtis has been in top form for the Blues, scoring five goals in nine games and registering three assists.

Jacobs’ return will create further competition among Pompey’s attacking ranks, with Jordy Hiwula also capable of playing wide left.
