Portsmouth are fighting hard to attain a play-off place come the end of the Sky Bet League One season, with Danny Cowley’s side currently sitting just outside the top six at present.
A weekend defeat to MK Dons on the road put a dent in their promotion aspirations at the weekend and will have frustrated their manager, who is still very much getting his feet under the table at Fratton Park after taking over the role from Kenny Jackett just recently.
Next up for the South Coast club is another away game at struggling Swindon Town who shipped four goals at Wimbledon at the weekend, meaning that they present a favourable test for Pompey as they bid to get back to winning ways.
Whatever happens this term, there are bound to be changes to the squad this summer, with Cowley sure to want to overhaul some of the current personnel.
<br /> 22 facts about Portsmouth’s football shirts over the years – But are they genuine or fake?
Here, we take a look at TWO Portsmouth players who may want to leave Fratton Park this summer for pastures new…
The striker has cut a frustrated figure at Fratton Park and as a result could be one of many players to move on this summer as he continues to struggle to get regular minutes on the South Coast.
He has only started once in the league and is firmly behind the likes of John Marquis and Ellis Harrison in the pecking order.
Despite this, the versatile 26-year-old has still managed to plunder three goals in 12 games and would offer a good option for another club this summer if they were in the market for a forward.
With Cowley likely to focus on getting the best out of Marquis, Hiwula’s days in a blue shirt could well be numbered as he eyes a move away.
The Australia international continues to be a consistent performer for Pompey but realistically speaking, they could struggle to hold onto his this summer.
Now at the age of 27, the experienced attacker is well into his prime and could well be getting fed up with playing at League One level at this stage of his career.
He is bound to be inundated with offers for his services over the next few months and with his contract due to expire, he could well take his leave.
The Fratton Park outfit face a big fight to keep hold of one of their key men and as a result he could be one of the more notable names to depart in a few months time.
