Kenny Jackett wants up to two more friendlies to form Pompey’s play-off preparation.

And in-house fixtures will also be arranged to bolster his squad’s match fitness.

Jackett: ’At the moment we haven’t finalised any other matches, but we are trying to.

’We are speaking to people and seeing if we can do something because we have the best part of three weeks now of building up to the Oxford game.

’We will also need to work at Fratton Park, which could mean playing some in-house games.’
