Portsmouth

The likely Portsmouth XI Jackett will select for Coventry clash

Published

on

Portsmouth make the trip to the West Midlands this evening as they take on Coventry City at St. Andrew’s hoping to make it ten consecutive wins in all competitions.

Kenny Jackett’s side currently occupy 5th place in the League One table, but come up against the side directly above them in the standings by a single point.

It will be a tough test for Pompey, against a side who have lost a total of just three league games all season. Coventry’s last defeat came back in mid-December.

Despite that, the Sky Blues have not beaten Portsmouth in the last three meetings between the teams.

A win for Pompey could lift them into the automatic promotion places in the division, depending on results elsewhere.

Ahead of the big game, here is the likely XI Kenny Jackett will field for Pompey…

Pompey should name an unchanged side for this upcoming game, with Kenny Jackett once again likely to opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation.

QUIZ: Can you name these 11 Portsmouth flops?

Who is this?

Alex Bass continues in goal after keeping yet another clean sheet against Tranmere last time out, and Kenny Jackett will be hoping for more of the same from the 21-year-old stopper.

The back four also will remain the same, with Sean Raggett and Christian Burgess partnering up in the centre of defence. Steve Seddon and James Bolton are poised to continue in the full back positions.

Raggett was chosen as the Man of the Match against Tranmere, and the 26-year-old will be hoping to put in another top performance this evening.

Tom Naylor and Ben Close continue as the pivots in front of the back four, with Cameron McGeehan playing further up the pitch once again due to Andy Cannon’s glute injury.

The Barnsley loanee continues as the Number 10, with Ryan Williams and Ronan Curtis on either wing. With two assists last time out, Curtis will be buoyed for this game.

John Marquis is likely to be left out once again in favour of Ellis Harrison, who performed well against Tranmere.

This could prove to be one of Pompey’s most important games of the season so far.

A win would send a message to the rest of the division and move the south coast side closer to the top of the pile.
