Wigan Athletic face Portsmouth on Tuesday
The hosts, on the other hand, head into the game unbeaten in four consecutive outings and will look to keep this fine run going.
Portsmouth returned to winning ways in style as they saw off Gillingham 3-1 on home turf last Saturday.
This followed a 1-1 draw at Morecambe on April 18 which saw their two-match winning streak come to an end.
With 70 points from 44 games, Portsmouth are currently ninth in the EFL League One table, level on points with 10th-placed Bolton Wanderers.
Elsewhere, Wigan continue to struggle at the tail end of the season as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Plymouth Argyle last time out.
The visitors currently lead the way in the league table, but they have failed to win any of their last four outings, claiming three points from a possible 12.
However, victory on Tuesday will see Wigan seal automatic promotion to the Championship and edge closer to the league title as they boast a three-point lead over second-placed Rotherham United.
