Like many teams, these two must face each other twice in the closing weeks of the season after Covid saw this fixture postponed from its original date.
Seventh-placed Pompey are also level on points with United, although this is their only game in hand.
Danny Cowley’s side are another lacking form, taking one point from four matches before Saturday’s 1-0 win that condemned Bristol Rovers to relegation.
Accrington have had some strange results in recent weeks, so tonight’s performance may not have too much bearing on how they will do at Fratton Park on the final day.
Whilst manager Danny Cowley’s number-one priority between now and the end of the season will be to pick up as many points as possible from Pompey’s final three league fixtures, questions still remain regarding his long-term future at Fratton Park.
Since being appointed as Kenny Jackett’s successor last month on a short-term basis until the end of the season by Portsmouth, the 42-year-old has made an encouraging start to life in charge of the club alongside his brother Nicky Cowley.
However, despite guiding Pompey to five victories in nine games, Cowley has yet to discover whether he will be in charge of the club for the 2021/22 campaign despite recent reports indicating that he is set for a long-term stay.
Accrington have enjoyed a remarkable season and punched well above their weight to still be within a shout of promotion at this late stage.
Pompey travel to the Wham Stadium on Tuesday before Stanley visit Fratton Park on the final day of the campaign
