Morecambe’s bid to remain in League One has received a major boost in recent weeks, with their last four matches yielding three victories.
The latest of those wins took place at the Valley on Friday, which saw the Shrimps emerge victorious from a five-goal thriller against Charlton Athletic.
Cole Stockton and Arthur Gnahoua grabbed a goal apiece in the first half to give Morecambe a two-goal lead at the break before Jayden Stockley halved the deficit eight minutes after the restart.
However, the two-goal cushion was reestablished six minutes later when Gnahoua netted his second goal of the game, and though Chuks Aneke pulled one back, the Shrimps held firm to claim all three points.
Morecambe cannot afford to rest on their laurels despite their recent run of positive results, with the Shrimps just three points above the drop zone, although they will believe they can pick up at least a point on Monday after losing just one of their last seven league games.
After winning on their travels on Friday, Morecambe are expected to name an unchanged lineup.
That would mean that Greg Leigh will continue at right-back after starting the last two games for the Shrimps.
Stockton is the current League One top scorer, and he will be aiming to score in a fifth consecutive game when he features in the Morecambe front line on Monday.
Portsmouth, meanwhile, could be without Joe Morrell after the Welsh international was forced off in the 12th minute of Friday’s contest.
Louis Thompson left the action 20 minutes from time on Friday due to a calf issue and the 27-year-old is rated doubtful for the trip to Morecambe.
