The likely Portsmouth XI Jackett will field against Shrewsbury

Published

on

Portsmouth return to Fratton Park this weekend to take on Shrewsbury Town, and the south coast side will be keen to make amends after a disappointing result last time out.

Pompey currently occupy 6th place in the League One table, following their 1-0 defeat to Coventry City on Tuesday night at St. Andrew’s.

However, Kenny Jackett’s side have the chance to bounce back imminently and embark on another winning run.

Despite not losing at Fratton Park so far this season, Portsmouth have Shrewsbury in front of them, with the Shropshire side currently in 17th place.

However, the Shrews inflicted defeat on Pompey back in August at the New Meadow, and they also have a good recent record against the Blues.

Shrewsbury have lost just once in their last five meetings with Portsmouth, which should be a warning sign to Kenny Jackett,

Ahead of the big game, we take a look at the likely XI that the Pompey boss will field on what should be a windy Saturday afternoon at Fratton Park…

Kenny Jackett should make just the one change for this clash, but maintain his usual 4-2-3-1 formation against Shrewsbury.

Who is this?

Despite conceding late on last time out, Alex Bass should keep his place in goal ahead of Craig MacGillivray for Saturday’s game.

The back four also remain unchanged. Steve Seddon continues at left-back, with Sean Raggett partnering Christian Burgess in the middle, and James Bolton keeping his spot at right-back.

The midfield also remains unchanged, with Ben Close and Tom Naylor lining up in front of the defence. Andy Cannon remains unavailable, so Cameron McGeehan continues at No. 10.

Ryan Williams and Ronan Curtis also stay on either wing, but Kenny Jackett will be hoping that the pair produce much improved performances this time around after below-par displays against Coventry.

The only change will see Ellis Harrison replace John Marquis upfront for Pompey.

The south coast side can move up to 4th with a win.
