2 selection tweaks Jackett may be mulling over for Portsmouth this weekend



Portsmouth are back in League One action this Saturday, as they make the trip to Highbury Stadium to take on Fleetwood Town, in what will be the club’s third game in a week.

Pompey will be on a high after their last-gasp EFL Trophy semi-final win over Exeter City at Fratton Park, with two stoppage time goals securing a trip to Wembley for the second consecutive year, where they will face Salford in the final of the competition.

The team will be hoping to take that momentum into Saturday’s game, as they make the trip to Fleetwood for the second time this season.

Pompey currently sit in 6th place in the League table, with 53 points from their 30 games.

Ahead of the big clash, here are two possible selection tweaks Kenny Jackett could make to the Portsmouth team…

Bolton in for McCrorie?

Ross McCrorie was back in the starting lineup on Tuesday night, playing the full ninety minutes against Exeter at right-back.

He also did well off the bench against Shrewsbury last Saturday, so Kenny Jackett could have a conundrum on his hands.

The Pompey boss may bring Bolton back into the team against Fleetwood to add more defensive solidity away from home, as it is known that McCrorie offers a lot more to the attacking phase of play.

However, it could all come down to how Jackett calls it on the day.

Who is this?

Andy Cannon in?

Kenny Jackett said prior to the Exeter game that Andy Cannon should be fit and ready to travel with the squad to Fleetwood, after recovering from a glute injury.

It depends if he is able to start or not due to his recent lack of match sharpness, but his inclusion in the squad could represent a dilemma in the Number 10 role.

Cameron McGeehan scored on Tuesday night, and has played higher up the pitch in Cannon’s absence. However, Jackett could bring Cannon back into the team to freshen things up.
