Portsmouth will look to continue their fine form when they welcome Northampton Town to Fratton Park tonight.
An impressive 3-1 success at Sunderland last time out means Kenny Jackett’s men have won four of their previous five games and they have moved into the top six as a result.
Those wins were much-needed for the Pompey chief as a slow start had seen the pressure from the fans really ramp up.

☝️ Just one change as Ronan Curtis makes a return to the starting XI #Pompey

So, he will want more of the same tonight and he has unsurprisingly kept the changes to a minimum, with Ronan Curtis replacing Michael Jacobs in the only switch from the victory at the Stadium of Light and that is enforced.
Whilst most supporters are pleased with the XI, one talking point was the decision to leave defender Rasmus Nicolaisen on the bench again, as many feel he warrants a place in the team.
Here we look at the comments ahead of the game…

How Raggett is getting into this team weekly baffles me. Wreckless liability
