The former Hatters striker has temporarily replaced Nathan Jones, who was appointed Stoke boss this week, in the Kenilworth Road hot seat.

Harford's main priority will be to cut Pompey's lead at the top of the League One table, with Kenny Jackett's side currently five points clear of second-placed Luton on 57 points.

But standing in his way on Saturday will be third-placed Sunderland.
