Portsmouth vs Port Vale Lineups and Team News

Portsmouth

Portsmouth made it 5 wins in 7 last weekend after an easy 2-0 away win against Bristol Rovers. Pompey were very good at both ends of the pitch in this game and they are clearly refusing to give up on their playoff dream just yet.

The squad is seriously stretched for this match with 7 players set to miss. Key playmaker Morrell and starting winger Scarlett are away on international duty. Also, Bishop’s main backup in attack Pigott misses suspended. Still have 4 sidelined players too. Among them are the main left-back Swanson and the important inner midfielder Pack.

Port Vale

The Valiants lost 2-3 at home vs Burton last weekend and they have won just once in the last 5 rounds. Despite that, they still hold an 8-point lead over the relegation zone and are feeling as if safety has been secured already.

Port Vale’s away results had been particularly poor as of late (W0 D1 L3), with the team rarely creating enough chances on the road.

Set to be without 3 long-term absentees for this trip. Including starting centre-back Jones and key striker Massey. Further problems are possible with 3 others deemed doubtful. Two of those key players – playmaker Garrity and the other starting striker Butterworth.
