Portsmouth – Peterborough preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Portsmouth vs Peterborough lineups.

Portsmouth

Pompey struggle for goals and they recorded consecutive 0-0 draws in the league recently. Another shaky display was offered in the first test vs Peterborough in midweek. Both teams rotated heavily for their League Cup clash on Tuesday and after a 1-1 draw it was Peterborough that won the penalty shoot-out. 

The regulars should start again now and they will be keen to seek a quick revenge against Posh. 

The main right-back Rafferty remains suspended, while winger Scully is nursing an injury that could keep him out. Lane is fit though and even if still not ready to start he could come off the bench. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Norris (GK), Swanson, Poole, Shaughnessy, Ogilvie, Pack, Morrell, Whyte, Kamara, Sparkes & Bishop

Peterborough 

Used only youngsters and reserves on Tuesday when defeating Portsmouth on penalties. 

Started the league campaign well with 3 consecutive wins but then lost the last 2. Last weekend defended poorly at home vs Derby and logically lost 2-4. 

The squad is small but practically at full strength. Only backup keeper Blackman and rarely used Fuchs are out injured. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Bilokapic (GK), Kioso, Edwards, Crichlow, Burrows, Kyprianou, Collins, Poku, Randall, Mason-Clark & Clarke-Harris

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

Player to Watch: Colby Bishop

Portmsouth’s top goalscorer from last season Colby Bishop likes this fixture. He scored in 3 of his last 6 matches vs Peterborough. Bishop also netted in 7 of Portsmouth’s last 11 home games and he’s often the one to make the difference. Could this happen again this weekend?
