Portsmouth v Blackpool '“Â Big match previewÂ
Pompey welcome Blackpool to Fratton Park this afternoon (3pm).
Here's all the key informationÂ you need to know about the League One fixture'¦
Pompey team news
Andy Cannon could be handed his Pompey debut against Terry McPhillips' side.
The midfielder completed his move to Fratton Park from Rochdale on January 2.
But Cannon was unavailableÂ for the Blues against Norwich in the FA Cup or Southend in the Checkatrade Trophy, having represented the Dale in both competitions this season.Â
This is the first game the 22-year-old is eligible for and could fill the void Ben Thompson has left in midfield after returning to Millwall.Â
Kenny Jackett has to decide whether to play Dion Donohue or Brandon Haunstrup at left-back.
The former made his first appearance for more than two months at Carrow Road in the role last weekend, while Haunstrup featured against the Shrimpers on Tuesday.
Oli Hawkins (calf) remainsÂ sidelined for the next couple of weeks, while hamstring-victims Nathan Thompson and Lee Brown, Ben Close (ankle) and Luke McGee (wrist) continue their rehabilitation.Â
Blackpool team news
No1 keeper Mark Howard is highly doubtful for Blackpool's trip to Fratton Park.
The 32-year-oldÂ sustained a recurrence of a groinÂ injury in his side's 3-0 FA Cup third-round loss to Arsenal last weekend.
Christoffer Mafoumb replaced Howard in the 69thÂ minute at Bloomfield Road and is expected to line up against Pompey.
Curtis Tilt,Â Ollie Turton and BenÂ Heneghan all could return from the sidelines, while Jordan Thompson is back from suspension.
The Tangerines will, however, be without midfielder Jimmy Ryan (knee), Mark Cullen (hamstring), Max Clayton (hamstring) and Joe Dodoo (ankle).Â
