Portsmouth vs Forest Green Lineups and Team News

Portsmouth

Portsmouth dropped precious points last weekend when held to a 2-2 home draw by Port Vale. Did well to come back from a 2-goal deficit, but still, the points dropped left them 6 points behind the playoffs and with no more room for errors.

In a huge boost to the lineup, the key playmaker Morrell and starting winger Scarlett are back from international duty. Also, important inner midfielder Pack is fully fit again so Pompey should look much better on the pitch this Saturday. Still without the suspended backup striker Pigott and the injured centre-back Swanson. Midfielders Lane and Curtis are also out injured.

Forest Green

Forest Green recorded an unlikely 1-0 home win vs Sheff Wed to stop a 16-game winless run. The Green Devils were very fortunate to keep a clean sheet in this match though and even with the 3 points, their chances for survival remain close to zero.

Some changes to the lineup can be expected but after the clean sheet, goalkeeper Doohan should retain his starting role on goal. Casey is back from a ban and could start, but now important wing-back O’Keeffe misses suspended. Stevenson and 2 others remain sidelined too.
