Pompey host the League One leaders fresh from winning three games on the
bounce, including Saturdays 1-0 victory over Walsall. Gareth Evans,
making his return to the starting line-up after a hamstring injury,
scored the winning goal at the Bankss Stadium and is likely to keep his
Portsmouth have come into form at the right time and are just two points
behind sixth-placed Plymouth Argyle with seven games remaining.
Wigan forward Will Grigg is likely to be involved again after coming off
at half-time as a precaution on Good Friday. Grigg (calf) scored the
first goal in Wigans 3-0 victory over Oldham before being substituted at
James Vaughan, who replaced Grigg, scored four minutes after his
introduction and could be in line to start. Jay Fulton will be pushing
for a recall after Sam Morsys return from international duty with Egypt
saw him miss out against Oldham.
Portsmouth have won three of their last four home league games against
Wigan (L1), though this is the first such meeting since an Aruna Dindane
hat-trick helped them to a 4-0 win in the Premier League in October
Both teams had a player sent off in the reverse fixture in August, as
Wigan dropped their first points of the season in a 1-1 draw.
Pompey are on a run of four successive wins on Easter Monday, with the
South Coast side scoring in each of their last 10 on this day.
Wigan have won nine of their last 11 league away games (D1 L1), winning
each of the last three with a clean sheet – they last won four in a row
with a clean sheet in January 2003 (five wins).
This is a big challenge for Wigan as they continue their push for
promotion in League One. Theyve still got games in hand on the other
sides battling to go up but any slip-up could be costly.
Portsmouth have plenty to play for themselves as they target a top-six
finish, which would be fantastic for them in the season after getting
promoted. But this is a Wigan win for me.
