Fleetwood

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:30
In Brief

Played out a 1:1 draw with Sunderland. Have become draw specialists lately. Ashley Hunter departs. Peter Clarke also leaves.

Looking Back

Fleetwood lead in the majority of their recent game against Sunderland and played out a 1:1 draw against the Black Cats.

The Cod Army have drawn four of their last five games, but their level of play has not declined severely and they remain close to the playoff places.

Looking Ahead

Ashley Hunter, Peter Clarke and Jimmy Dunne have all left the club this week.

Joey Barton, back after a one-match touchline ban, will select from an unchanged squad.

Points of Interest

Fleetwood have lost each of their last four matches against Portsmouth but this will be their first meeting with Pompey this season.

Portsmouth

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:30
In Brief

Played out a 1:1 draw at Gillingham. Have been inconsistent lately, but the pressure on Kenny Jackett has eased. Jack Whatmough is still not ready. Steve Seddon signs.

Looking Back

Portsmouth took the lead in their recent game at Gillingham but were unable to hold on and had to settle for a point.

They have been inconsistent lately, but are close enough to the play-off places that Kenny Jackett, thought to be close to losing his job in October, is no longer under major pressure.

Looking Ahead

Jack Whatmough is close to returning from a long-term injury but this game will come too soon for him.

Steve Seddon has been signed on loan as a reaction to the injuries suffered by Lee Brown and Brandon Haunstrup over the recent weeks. He is available.

Points of Interest

Portsmouth have a bottom-half away record in League One at the moment. They have won two of their eleven away games.
