Portsmouth

Last updated: Thu 13 December 2018 16:03
In Brief

Eased to a 2:0 win over Southend. Will move nine points clear at the top if they win. No new selection issues.

Looking Back

Portsmouth had things under control throughout the game and eased to a 2:0 win over Southend.

Pompey are the sole side in the league that has been in consistently top form since the start of the season and have opened up a gap at the top of the table as a consequence.

Looking Ahead

Dion Donohue will feature for the reserves on Tuesday. The wide man has hardly featured this season but is close to returning from his injury.

David Wheeler remains sidelined by injury, but Kenny Jackett will have no new selection issues to deal with.

Points of Interest

Criticized for their mediocre home form earlier in the season, Pompey have collected ten points from their last four home games and currently have the second-best home record in the league.

Charlton Athletic

Last updated: Thu 13 December 2018 16:03
In Brief

Had their winning run snapped by Blackpool. Jamie Ward and Igor Vetokele both remain sidelined. Expected to have no new selection issues.

Looking Back

Charlton had the better of things, but a late goal condemned them to a 2:1 defeat at Blackpool.

The defeat against the Seasiders ended the Addics' four-game winning run. They find themselves just outside of the play-off places.

Looking Ahead

Jamie Ward and Igor Vetokele both missed the previous game with injuries and it has been confirmed that they both remain unavailable.

Billy Clarke is over his injury but was not risked last weekend. The attacking midfielder keeps building up his fitness.

Lee Bowyer is not expected to have any new selection issues to deal with.

Points of Interest

The last seven competitive games between these two sides have produced six away wins and a draw. Both of their last season's meetings ended in 1:0 away wins.
