Portsmouth arrive at the JJB this afternoon full of confidence.
They are currently sitting in fifth position in the table and looking to build on their early season form.
This will be a tough game for the Latics coming back off that second half mauling at Old Trafford, but one that we have got to win.
We are in grave danger of being ‘sucked’ into a relegation fight and need to keep up our good home form with a win here today
