Nugent: Fitness boost
Striker David Nugent will be fit for Portsmouth's run-in despite suffering an injury against Leicester on Saturday.
The 25-year-old netted Pompey's winner before the break but limped off in the 74th minute with a leg problem.
However Nugent, the club's top scorer so far this season with 12 goals, has allayed fears he is poised for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
"The knee's fine. It was a bit of a dead leg above the knee," Nugent told The News.
"It happened early doors in the second half and the pain wasn't going away.
"Every time I planted my left foot the pain was still there and not going so I wasn't able to carry on.
"But it's okay and I will be fine after a break."
