    Fratton Park has received its facelift and is now waiting impatiently to host competitive football again.

    Lincoln are the visitors on Saturday (3pm kick-off) for the first piece of League One action since major works in the South and North stands.

    Both sides come into the fixture – expected to take place under bright south coast sunshine – on the back of a draw on the opening day.

    The Blues earned a point at Sheffield Wednesday in a see-saw contest that saw them twice battle from behind and then lead before ultimately having to settle for a point.

    Their opponents played out a 1-1 stalemate with newly promoted Exeter on home soil, as Tom Hopper cancelled out Sam Nombe’s opener.

    Mark Kennedy is the new man in charge at Sincil Bank following the departure of Michael Appleton at the end of last term.

    The Imps were twice beaten when the sides clashed during the 2021/22 campaign, including a 3-2 defeat at Fratton Park.

    Ronan Curtis grabbed a late winner on Good Friday after the hosts had let slip their two-goal advantage.


    TEAM NEWS
    Pompey will be hoping skipper Clark Robertson recovers from a foot injury to make his first appearance of the season.

    Denver Hume is continuing his path back to full fitness following a back problem, while Joe Morrell (groin) and Jayden Reid (hamstring) are both absent.

    Lewis Montsma (knee) is missing for Lincoln, who also have doubts over the fitness of Danny Mandroiu and Charles Vernam.


    HEAD TO HEAD
    Overall

    Pompey: 13 wins
    Lincoln: 6 wins
    5 draws

    At Fratton Park
    Pompey: 7 wins
    Lincoln: 3 wins
    3 draws

    Really looking forward to getting down there and seeing what this team can do.

    We've been dire for a few years so it's nice to see the positivity of recent weeks around the club.

    Reckon it's going noisy.

    3-1 Pompey

    For the first time in years I'm missing out on Portsmouth's opening home fixture of the league. Sad times. I'm hoping to get down at some point in August or early September though. Possibly going with my sister and nephew to his first Portsmouth game.

    Conor Ogilvie's ball is left by Colby Bishop, and Reeco Hackett sees his first attempt blocked.

    It bounces up to give him a second attempt, but Reeco Hackett's acrobatic effort goes over. 43 minutes.

    Half time whistle. 0-0 at the moment.

    Lincoln defending well, but we have had some good chances so far, so need to take them in the second half.
