Portsmouth – Port Vale 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 Port Vale lineups.

Portsmouth

Portsmouth secured a fortunate 2-1 home win vs Wycombe on Tuesday night. Grabbed the 3 points thanks to a goal in stoppage time but the general display was pretty solid against a team that has been playing well lately. 

Pompey remain first and undefeated (W7 D4). In fact, Portsmouth’s unbeaten League One run is now 22 consecutive games, stretching back to last February. 

Portsmouth are achieving all that in the absence of some important players. The midfield trio Scully, Dockerill and Lowery are long-term absentees. Also, the important left-back Ogilvie has been out for several weeks now and he remains unavailable. 

In better news, striker Yengi is fit and ready to help. 

Predicted Lineup:

Norris (GK), Rafferty, Poole, Shaughnessy, Sparkes, Robertson, Morrell, Lane, Kamara, Saydee & Bishop 

Port Vale

Port Vale offered another dismal display on Tuesday when losing 0-3 away vs Bristol Rovers. A poor start to the game and inability to keep their discipline, the Valiants had a player sent off for the second time in the last four rounds, which led to that disappointing result. 

Port Vale have now earned a single point from their last 4 league games. 

The manager will be missing his key centre-back Debrah for this trip. He was the one sent off in midweek and now serves a ban. This is a serious issue as the other two main centre-backs Iacovitti and Jones are missing the game too, both are recovering from injuries. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Ripley (GK), Cass, Smith, Balmer, Sang, Ojo, Arblaster, Massey, Garrity, Devine & Plant

​Starting Lineups

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

​Player to Watch: Colby Bishop

Portsmouth's top goalscorer from last season Colby Bishop has started the new campaign where he left off in the summer. Bishop has scored in 50% of Portsmouth’s home matches so far. He continues to find himself in the right positions inside the penalty area. 

All this makes us believe he is the player to watch in this game as Bishop has been the difference-maker for Portsmouth on many occasions recently.
