‘Perfection’, ‘Big call’ – Many Portsmouth fans react as Cowley makes one change for play-off deciding clash



After a topsy-turvy last few weeks, Portsmouth go into the final day of the season knowing that a win will secure them a place in the League One play-offs.

It looked unlikely at one point before Kenny Jackett was sacked in March, but Danny Cowley came into the fold and immediately got Pompey firing with four straight wins.

But it has been far from straight-forward after that as a four match winless run came and just as it looked like Pompey were about to pick up a last-gasp win on the road at Accrington Stanley over a week ago, John Marquis put the ball in his own net and saw his side drop two crucial points.

A 3-1 win over AFC Wimbledon last week quelled some fears but with Oxford and Charlton looming behind them by just a point, the Portsmouth squad need a win to make sure of their play-off place.

Cowley will already know of the threat that today’s opponents in Accrington provide as they faced off less than two weeks ago, and have two prolific scorers in Colby Bishop and Dion Charles.

What colour is Pompey's away kit this season?

Just one change has been made from the victory over the Dons on Saturday and it’s a return to the backline for Jack Whatmough, who has been suspended for the last four matches but has replaced Sean Raggett surprisingly instead of Paul Downing.
