Match Preview

Pompey trio in fitness race Portsmouth will check on Liam Lawrence, Hayden Mullins and Joel Ward ahead of the clash with Scunthorpe. Winger Lawrence missed Saturday's 2-0 win over Ipswich with a calf problem and has been undergoing intensive treatment in an oxygen chamber in a bid to get fit. Mullins came off at Portman Road after taking a knock to the knee and fellow midfielder Ward was also substituted as he was feeling a tight calf. Skipper Aaron Mokoena could step into midfield but boss Steve Cotterill will not want to make too many changes after a run of four straight wins and four consecutive clean sheets. Striker Danny Webber remains a long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from a cruciate injury. Scunthorpe boss Ian Baraclough could be without defender Paul Reid for the trip. The centre-back was forced off midway through the first half of Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Bristol City with a rib injury. Reid will be assessed ahead of the long trip and if he fails to recover, Michael Raynes could earn a starting berth. The result reawakened the Iron's relegation fears and, after naming the same side for the third game running at Ashton Gate, Baraclough will look to ring the changes. He said: "On Saturday we were beaten by an average side. The squad now has to come to the fore and we have to look at making one or two changes."

Match Report

Pompey make it five with Iron win Second-half goals from Dave Kitson and Aaron Mokoena handed in-form Portsmouth a 2-0 win - their fifth successive npower Championship victory - and plunged Scunthorpe deeper into the relegation mire. Kitson fired home a right-footed shot from 18 yards in the 62nd minute and midfielder Mokoena added a second with 10 minutes remaining as Pompey's fine run continued. Joel Ward picked up a knock during Saturday`s 2-0 win against Ipswich at Portman Road, so Kanu came in for the only change to Portsmouth`s side. Scunthorpe made five changes to their starting line-up following their 2-0 defeat at Bristol City. The fit-again David Mirfin replaced the injured Paul Reid in the centre of defence and Eddie Nolan came in for Andrew Wright at right-back. Baraclough also made three changes in midfield as Michael Raynes, Abdisalam Ibrahim and Michael Collins replaced Sam Togwell, Andy Hughes and Joe Garner. Portsmouth began brightly but Scunthorpe gradually steadied themselves and in the eighth minute midfielder Mark Duffy made the space to hit a shot just wide. Moments later Portsmouth created a fine opening which saw former England striker David Nugent advance forward at pace in a marauding run and hit a fierce shot straight at Josh Lillis. The pendulum swung back in Scunthorpe`s favour in the 10th minute when Lee Miller connected with a dangerous cross from Josh Wright which he failed to steer on target. The Iron`s formation of five in midfield began to serve them well and they came close to opening the scoring in the 16th minute. Miller headed home a cross from Duffy but the score was disallowed after Miller had committed a foul in the build-up. Portsmouth were then dealt a blow midway through the first half when Hayden Mullins was replaced by Aaron Mokoena because of injury. Yet the change did not nothing to quell Scunthorpe's momentum as they continued to look comfortable and probe for openings when the opportunities arose. However, Portsmouth signalled their threat in the 34th minute when Kitson took on Eddie Nolan and found the space to fire goalwards - although the effort was cleared. In the 37th minute, Duffy cut infield and fired goalwards but Portsmouth goalkeeper was equal to his effort. Two minutes later Nugent shot wide and shortly before the break Kitson crossed to the back post to Kanu but the veteran Nigerian could only head wide with the goal begging. The hosts began to dominate and in the 62nd minute Kitson collected possession and struck a right-foot shot into the bottom corner from 18 yards. Duffy tried his luck for Scunthorpe but Portsmouth survived and then claimed a killer second goal in the 80th minute when Mokoena took a pass from Kanu and fired into the bottom corner with a left-foot shot from 25 yards.
