The Big Match Preview - Portsmouth

19 September 2014

All you need to know ahead of the trip to the south coast for Saturday's 3pm kick-off.

Gareth Ainsworth's men head to one of the favoured candidates for automatic promotion this season with both sides looking to build on midweek successes, with Pompey's 3-0 win against Dagenham & Redbridge and Wanderers' 1-0 triumph at Plymouth giving the two clubs momentum going into the game.

The Blues have exceeded all expectations so far but could be in for their toughest test yet, although they could be boosted by the returns of Steven Craig and Paris Cowan-Hall following injury.

Previous meeting
A last-gasp header from Anthony Stewart earned the Wanderers a 2-2 draw at Fratton Park last season, after the original match had been abandoned at half-time following a downpour of biblical proportions.
