Promotion-chasing Pompey could be boosted by Bogle return

Match Preview
Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett has confirmed Omar Bogle could return for his side's Sky Bet League One clash with Peterborough.

Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett has confirmed Omar Bogle could return for his side’s Sky Bet League One clash with Peterborough.

On-loan forward Bogle missed Pompey’s last two matches with a swollen knee and ankle but returned to training on Monday.

Pompey remain without long-term absentee Jack Whatmough, though, with Christian Burgess set to continue at centre-back.

Jackett has no fresh injury concerns and a win on Tuesday would put Portsmouth a point behind league-leaders Luton and Barnsley with one game remaining.

George Cooper is a doubt for play-off hopefuls Peterborough after twisting his ankle during Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Walsall.

The midfielder had to be substituted after just 24 minutes and Ivan Toney, who replaced him at the weekend, could be an option to start at Fratton Park.

Defender Ryan Tafazolli returned to training on Thursday and Friday following a knee problem but reported further issues on Saturday.

On-loan defender Ben White could feature after being included in Darren Ferguson’s squad at Walsall following an ankle injury.
