Forward previews Pompey trip

Conor Chaplin is expecting a tense atmosphere when Town travel to Fratton Park this evening.

The Blues face Pompey under the lights [kick-off 7.45pm], woth tonight seeing Conor return to his former side.

"Portsmouth is a football city," he said.

"The fans are passionate about the game, and particularly the club.

"As the away team, though, we should relish these fixtures. We have to take nights like this in our stride and enjoy the occasion. Any player that has played at Fratton Park under the lights will tell you that it's special.

"But, like at any big club, there is an expectancy. If things aren't going their way then you might hear some moans and groans - it's just part of football and we will look to capitalise.

"This will be my third time back at Pompey since I left the club, and I'm really looking forward to it."
