Meet the opposition

Portsmouth currently sit top of the Sky Bet League One with 57 points, five points ahead of Luton Town who are second in the table.

Manager Kenny Jackett was appointed in June 2017, replacing Paul Cook who joined Wigan Athletic. Pompey lead the way in the third tier mid-way through the season, and will be hoping for a return to second-flight football next season.

The last time City faced Portsmouth at Carrow Road was in 2010, with City losing 2-1 that day. Dave Kitson and Greg Halford both scored in the second half to give the visitors the three points.

But the last time the two teams met was later that season, with City clinching promotion to the Premier League after 1-0 victory. Simeon Jackson got on the end of a David Fox pass to spark jubilant scenes in the away end.

Portsmouth beat Maidenhead 4-0 in the first round of the FA Cup, with Ben Thompson, Oliver Hawkins, Jamal Lowe and David Wheeler all on the scoresheet.

They followed it up in the last round by beating Rochdale 1-0 at Spotland, with Andre Green's stoppage-time strike helping them through.
