Match Preview

Double boost for Lions Millwall boss Kenny Jackett is likely to have midfield duo Jimmy Abdou and Liam Trotter fit for the visit of Portsmouth. The pair missed last Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Hull with knocks but are set to make a timely return to the squad. On-loan Aston Villa defender Nathan Baker was forced off with a knee injury in the first half of the match at Hull and replaced by Jordan Stewart, who later hobbled off himself in his first appearance after recovering from a groin injury. Baker is likely to return against Portsmouth, however Jackett has more of a doubt over Stewart's fitness. Goalkeeper David Forde has missed the Lions' last five matches with a thigh injury but is nearing a return, but the game may come too soon for him. On-loan striker Jay Simpson is also back after being ineligible to face his parent club Hull. Portsmouth could once again be without Liam Lawrence. Skipper Lawrence played just over an hour against Southampton on Sunday after six weeks out with an ankle ligament injury, but picked up a sore hamstring during the south coast derby, causing him to miss training for much of this week. The former Sunderland man is now a doubt for Pompey to face the Lions. Meanwhile, striker Luke Varney is set to return to the side for trip to the New Den. The former Blackpool frontman missed last weekend's draw with Saints after suffering a knee injury against Burnley but is expected to go straight back into the starting line-up. Pompey boss Michael Appleton could hand a start to Erik Huseklepp in midfield after West Brom recalled George Thorne from his loan at Fratton Park to ease their injury crisis. Portsmouth have moved six points clear of the relegation zone and will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

Match Report

N'Guessan sinks Pompey Dany N'Guessan's first npower Championship goal of the season secured a 1-0 victory for lowly Millwall against Portsmouth. The summer signing from Leicester made the most of a rare chance in the starting line-up with the winner nine minutes from time. It brought to an end Pompey's mini-revival under their new manager Michael Appleton - they were unbeaten in their previous four matches. They looked a good bet to make it five as a game of few chances was meandering towards a goalless draw, but N'Guessan had other ideas with a neat close-range finish. Despite their perilous position just above the drop zone, Millwall looked comfortable in possession in the opening stages but they only had an ambitious long-range effort from N'Guessan, which flew wide, to show for it. Portsmouth's first opportunity arrived in the 17th minute when Dave Kitson headed Liam Lawrence's corner over the top. Plenty of endeavour followed, but with little quality on show neither side looked likely to make the breakthrough until the end of the first half. Then, two minutes before the break, Lawrence should have done better when he met a cross from Erik Huseklepp, but the unmarked Pompey skipper made a mess of his header which drifted harmlessly for a goal-kick. And in first-half stoppage time Liam Feeney drove in a fierce shot which Portsmouth goalkeeper Stephen Henderson could only parry but Liam Trotter could not convert the follow-up. Lions boss Kenny Jackett, who had already had to replace defender Nathan Baker due to a knee injury, made another change at the interval with John Marquis replacing top scorer Darius Henderson in attack. Moments later Pompey were forced into a reshuffle when Joel Ward limped off, with Aaron Mokoena entering the fray. Portsmouth midfielder David Norris then had a shot blocked by Jimmy Abdou and Greg Halford wasted a potential counter-attack for the visitors with a poor cross. At the other end Brian Howard fizzed in a free-kick which stung the palms of Stephen Henderson as he touched it round the post for a corner. And in the 70th minute Feeney put Marquis in on goal, but although the young striker managed to lift his shot over Stephen Henderson, it bounced agonisingly the wrong side of the post. But the goal finally came 11 minutes later when Feeney floated in a cross, Trotter got the knockdown and N'Guessan reacted first to sweep the ball past Stephen Henderson. N'Guessan could have made it two as full-time approached but his brave header flew narrowly wide. end
