Positive Portsmouth response expected at AFC WimbledonÂ
Kenny Jackett is expecting a positive Pompey response at AFC Wimbledon.
TheÂ boss is certain his side can returnÂ to winning ways in League One at Kingsmeadow on Saturday.Â
The BluesÂ travel to the Wombles on the back of their maiden league defeat of the seasonÂ last weekend.
Jackett's men surrendered their unbeaten start after sufferingÂ a 2-0 loss to Gillingham at Fratton Park.
However, Pompey are still three points clear at the top of the table.
Following a comfortable 1-0 success over Crawley in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday, theÂ BluesÂ turn their attention to the league at Wimbledon.Â
And Jackett insists his troops are determined to get back on track against Neal Ardley's men.
The manager said:Â '˜Saturday is a big game for us and it'll have a derby feel about it with us taking our full allocation.
'˜It's a tight ground and there'll be a passionate atmosphere I'm sure.
'˜As ever, we will have to work very, very hard for anyÂ points we get out of Saturday.Â
'˜I do (expect PompeyÂ to respond positively).
'˜We have good character and a good attitude in our group.
'˜I don't want that to fall away, particularlyÂ as we go into what's perceived as the winter months.
'˜But I'm confident in our players. We'll have a positive attitude and my players will be up for it.
'˜After that, we'll have to get the detail right to get the points.'
