Reeco Hackett-Fairchild starts: The predicted Portsmouth XI to face Lincoln on Tuesday evening

Published

on

Portsmouth built some momentum with a late win over AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Talismanic winger Marcus Harness came up with the goods in the 89th minute to keep Pompey in the hunt to break into the top six.

Danny Cowley faces his former employers in Lincoln City at Sincil Bank on Tuesday evening, the Imps have not hit the heights of their run to the play-off final last season but have shown in glimpses that they still have the quality to match any side in the division.

Michael Appleton’s men are unbeaten in their last four and find themselves in a tight cluster of teams fighting to push themselves into the top half of the division.

We are predicting just two changes from Saturday’s win over the Dons with two players coming in who made a positive impact from the bench…

Reeco Hackett-Fairchild replaced George Hirst on 53 minutes and Joe Morrell came on for Louis Thompson in the 56th. Pompey were 1-0 down at the time and went on to win the game 2-1 such was the impact of Cowley’s substitutes. The duo could retain their place with Hackett-Fairchild and Ronan Curtis making up a very fluid front pairing that would be sure to keep the Lincoln backline guessing.

Quiz: Have Portsmouth ever won an away game at each of these 20 stadiums?

It will feel like one step forwards and two steps back if Pompey are undone at Sincil Bank. They are now unbeaten in five in the third tier, winning three, and have the supporters believing they can achieve a top six finish as a result.
