It might seem odd for a team who are three points clear at the top of the table - but it's a fact that Pompey's home form is not quite as good as it could be.

The Blues won their first three at Fratton but have been held in the last two, with Shrewsbury and Wycombe both leaving town with a share of the spoils.

And with this weekend's visitors Gillingham having left Fratton with all three points just seven months ago, Kenny Jackett is all too aware this will be no walk in the park for in-form Pompey.

He told the club website: 'We’re trying to highlight to the players what they’re doing right – which at the moment is plenty. But we’re also looking at how we can improve because each game provides its own unique test and there are some very good sides in this league.

'Going away to Coventry on Tuesday night will be completely different to playing Gillingham at home on Saturday. We have to make sure we continuously realise that and know what is required to overcome our next opponent.

'I’ve got a lot of time for their manager Steve Lovell. They’ll throw a lot of men forward and get people in the box – it’s a strong feature of what they do. We’ll have to adapt very quickly and will have to be ready for them because this is a big home game for us in the middle of quite a few away fixtures.

'I think we need to start better at Fratton Park than we have done in recent weeks. We have a great crowd and want to bring that into play as soon as possible. We want to put on a good show in front of our own fans and we need to make sure we overcome this test.'
