Stevenage – Portsmouth Preview: Latest Form, News, and Potential Lineups

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

Stevenage

The 

Predicted Lineup: 

Hegyi (GK), Burns, L. Thompson, Piergianni, Hannam, B. Thompson, Forster-Caskey, Butler, Roberts, Pressley & Reid

Portsmouth

Pompey are unbeaten after 4 rounds (W2 D2). They have a busy schedule though and on Tuesday the manager rotated all 11 starters for the EFL trophy clash vs Fulham’s U21 squad. The game ended in a 3-3 draw and Portsmouth only won after penalties. 

Paddy Lane made his return from injury in this last match and he will be a fresh option off the bench. 

Now the regulars will start again and from the 3 long-term absentees the only one that would have played often is midfielder Tom Lowery. Pompey have rich options in midfield even without him though. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Norris (GK), Rafferty, Poole, Shaughnessy, Ogilvie, Pack, Morrell, Whyte, Robertson, Scully & Bishop

​Starting Lineups

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

​Player to Watch: Carl Piergianni

Stevenage’s powerful centre-back Carl Piergianni had been at the heart of everything positive the Stags have done so far this season. When Piergianni plays well Stevenage win, when he’s not in top shape they struggle. 

That’s why we predict that Piergianni’s display will impact seriously Stevenage’s chances in this match.
