Match Preview

Lawrence worry for Pompey Liam Lawrence is an injury doubt for Portsmouth ahead of the clash with Coventry. The winger, who has only just recovered from a knee problem, pulled out of training on Friday with a sore hamstring which kept him out of the 1-1 draw with Preston. Pompey's skipper is now awaiting the results of another scan and could miss out at Fratton Park. Better news for boss Steve Cotterill is the return of Ricardo Rocha from a one-match ban. The Portuguese defender will go straight back in at centre-half with Aaron Mokoena likely to make way. Striker Danny Webber will be on the bench again having made two late substitute appearances since recovering from the cruciate injury which sidelined him for a year. Coventry youngster Jordan Clarke will again be assessed ahead of the trip. Full-back Clarke, 19, missed Saturday`s 2-2 draw at Derby with an ankle injury sustained in the previous weekend`s 2-0 victory over Watford. Otherwise, caretaker manager Andy Thorn is expected to have the same squad at his disposal at Fratton Park as he had against the Rams at the weekend. Striker Marlon King and winger Gary McSheffrey recovered from flu in time to start at Pride Park and the pair should again be involved on the south coast. Irishman Gary Deegan made his long-awaited comeback from a lengthy ankle injury as an unused substitute while fellow midfielder Carl Baker also recovered from an ankle knock of his own to come off the bench late on. Skipper Lee Carsley (Achilles) and defenders Richard Wood (groin), Ben Turner (knee) and James McPake (back) remain sidelined.

Match Report

Sky Blues punish Pompey Coventry took a step closer to safety npower Championship with a 3-0 win over 10-man Portsmouth. Marlon King took his season's tally to 10 with two penalties and Gary McSheffrey also netted in the second half to give the Sky Blues just their third win in 21 games. Greg Halford's searching free-kick provided an early test for the visiting defence, with Dave Kitson's header forcing Keiren Westwood into a smart save. And moments later Danny Webber sprung the offside trap before firing over from the edge of the box. But it was the visitors who opened the scoring in the 19th minute when Ricardo Rocha fouled McSheffrey in the box and King stepped up to fire home the penalty. City were almost punished when Aron Gunnarsson conceded possession on the halfway line, allowing Webber to make progress down the right before laying the ball off for Joel Ward, whose powerful effort was well blocked by Chris Hussey. And only a timely intervention from Halford denied McSheffrey the chance to connect with Sammy Clingan's dangerous cross at the other end. A shining example of route one football handed Coventry a chance to double their advantage, with King latching onto Westwood's goal kick before drilling in a cross which just eluded McSheffrey and Lukas Jutkiewicz. The near miss triggered an immediate response from the hosts as Kitson found Webber inside box and he turned sharply before firing in a shot on the angle which Westwood saved. David Nugent then had his goal celebrations cut short after he turned in a Hayden Mullins cross which had bounced off the legs of Webber, who was adjudged offside. The hosts were handed a great opportunity to level the scores by former player Martin Cranie's lapse in concentration just before the break. The defender was caught in possession by Ritchie De Laet, who had Kitson to aim for in the box but his cross was wayward and the former Reading striker could not bring it under control and the chance was wasted. Jutkiewicz found his range early in the second half when he shrugged off two defenders and sent a dipping shot towards the top corner which Jamie Ashdown palmed over the bar. The resulting corner was delivered with some menace by Clingan and Gunnarsson directed a powerful header against the bar before Portsmouth smuggled the ball clear. Pompey failed to heed the warning and in the 58th minute McSheffrey made it 2-0 when he headed home from Richard Keogh's cross. They were almost handed a lifeline when Cranie lost his bearings and smacked a clearance against his own bar. But the result was was put beyond doubt when Mullins was dismissed for handling Jutkiewicz's goal-bound shot and King slammed in the penalty to move Coventry 12 points clear of the bottom three. Portsmouth's frustration was compounded when Kitson's late header was cleared off the line by team-mate Halford.
