Portsmouth have fully-fit squad for Cheltenham clash

Portsmouth will be at full strength as they prepare for their final-day title push against Cheltenham on Sunday.

Conor Chaplin, Christian Burgess and Danny Rose all returned to the starting XI in place of Nicke Kabamba, Jack Whatmough and Stanley Aborah, who had been struggling with a neck injury, during their 1-0 win at Mansfield.

Amine Linganzi and Jamal Lowe are pushing for starts as manager Paul Cook has no injury concerns.

The Blues, who lie in third, will need to win and hope Plymouth and Doncaster draw or lose their games to have any chance of claiming the Sky Bet League Two trophy.

Cheltenham secured their Football League status for another season last weekend with a 1-0 home win over Hartlepool.

Daniel O'Shaughnessy returned to the squad for that game as an unused substitute and the defender will hope to end the campaign by getting back out on the pitch after recovering from a foot injury.

Stand-in boss Russell Milton has no fresh concerns for the trip to Fratton Park, where several Town players could be playing for their futures as the club finalises its retained list.

Will Boyle, Carl Winchester, Harry Pell, Dan Holman and young defender Matt Bower are the only players under contract for next season.
