    The battle for League One promotion takes a step back this weekend, as the Emirates FA Cup takes the spotlight.

    Pompey will aim to avoid a giant-killing when they take on King’s Lynn at Fratton Park on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

    The visitors are currently sitting 13th in the fifth tier standings and have won their past two matches against Dover and Barnet.

    Ian Culverhouse’s men won the National League North title last term, leapfrogging York into top spot when point-per-game was used to decide the final placings.

    And they have already shocked one EFL outfit to get to this stage of the cup, with Sonny Carey’s late strike seeing off Port Vale.

    The Linnets received a bye to avoid having to take part in the final qualifying round after Covid cases caused Notts County to pull out of the competition.

    Pompey, meanwhile, enjoyed a dramatic extra-time victory at Ipswich, courtesy of Sean Raggett’s controversial goal.

    Their next opponents were only formed in 2010 after the old King’s Lynn FC were wound up at the High Court the previous year.

    TEAM NEWS
    Michael Jacobs (knee) is the only player missing for Pompey and Kenny Jackett has promised to name a strong side.

    The visitors are without injured full-back Aaron Jones, while striker Kairo Mitchell is cup-tied, but Michael Gash could feature for the first time this season after recovering from pancreatitis.

    HEAD TO HEAD
    This will be the first competitive meeting between the sides.

    OFFICIALS
    Referee: Will Finnie
    Assistants: Richard Morris and Daniel Flynn

    Pompey are apparently watching Kings Lynn right back 23 year old Ross Barrows, who can also play at centre half or as a defensive midfielder.

    Be interesting to see how he plays today !!

    2-0 now with a lovely goal from Tom Naylor, with a shot into the top left hand corner from 25 yards out. 30 minutes.
