Charlton are set to be without top scorer Miles Leaburn, meaning Chuks Aneke and Jayden Stockley should start up front.

Pompey received a boost ahead of this game, with Tom Lowery and Joe Rafferty set to return to the squad.

Match Preview

Portsmouth boss Danny Cowley is hoping his side can show what they are made of in front of the Sky Sports cameras against Charlton on Monday night and kick-start their promotion with a win at The Valley.

Pompey have lost just one of their first 11 League 1 games this season, but draws with Plymouth and Fleetwood either side of a 3-2 loss to Ipswich halted their early progress.

But it would be unwise to read too much into these results given that Plymouth and Ipswich have been the two most outstanding teams in the English third tier this campaign and Portsmouth have managed to battle against both sides.

As for Charlton, the season has been interrupted and a tally of seven dead ends holds them back.

The Addicks lifted their spirits with a 4-2 win over Exeter City last Tuesday but are still stuck in mid-table and could lack attack in this deal with top scorer Miles Leaburn ruled out through injury.

Both of these clubs are big names in Ligue 1, but Portsmouth seem the most stable at the moment.

And Cowley’s men have been particularly adept on the road, picking up ten points out of a possible 15, so they are well worth supporting in the draw-no-bet market.

Key stat

Portsmouth have won three of their five road games in League One this season.
