All the Portsmouth injury news ahead of MK Dons clash this week

Published

Kenny Jackett’s Portsmouth side are back in League One action this evening as they take on Milton Keynes Dons at Fratton Park.

Pompey will want to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat to Fleetwood Town at Highbury Stadium, where they went down 1-0 to Joey Barton’s side courtesy of a Callum Connolly strike in the 12th minute of the game.

That result saw Pompey drop out of the play-off positions and down to 7th place in the League table.

They face an MK Dons side who have picked up form of late despite their league position of 18th.

Who is this?

The Buckinghamshire outfit have gone five league games without defeat, and were victorious last time they came up against Portsmouth in December, winning 3-1 at Stadium MK.

Pompey will be keen to avenge that loss, and further extend their unbeaten league record at Fratton Park.

Ahead of the clash, we bring you up to date with all the latest Portsmouth injury news…

Kenny Jackett provided an update on Andy Cannon and Ellis Harrison, who both did not feature against Fleetwood.

Cannon has missed Pompey’s last five games with a glute injury that was sustained against Sunderland at the start of the month.

Harrison suffered a dead leg in last week’s win over Exeter in the Leasing.com trophy semi-final, and had been selected to lead the line upfront against Fleetwood, only to be withdrawn shortly before kick-off.

“We’ll make a final decision on Tuesday morning, but they were close on Saturday and I’m optimistic,” Jackett told the club website.

“There are no other injury concerns and we’re hopefullt okay at the moment – long may that continue.”

Lee Brown missed the Fleetwood game with a sickness bug, but should be back involved against MK Dons.

Bryn Morris remains the only long-term absentee for Pompey.
