The visitors need just a single point to mathematically secure their place in the Championship for next season.

And they could even claim the title if they can better second-placed Rotherham’s result at Sunderland.

It would complete a remarkable turnaround for the Latics, who narrowly avoided relegation into the basement last season, having recovered from financial turmoil.

There are plenty of familiar faces in both camps, with academy graduate Jack Whatmough and former skipper Tom Naylor returning to the south coast.

They are managed by Leam Richardson, who was assistant to Paul Cook when the Blues dramatically claimed the 2016/17 League Two title, while ex-keeper Darryl Flahavan is on his coaching staff.

Michael Jacobs twice won promotion from this level with Wigan and fellow Pompey midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe had a couple of loan spells at the DW Stadium.

Richardson’s men won 1-0 when the sides met in the north-west earlier in the campaign and triumphed by the same scoreline on their most recent visit to Fratton Park.

And on Wearside, in League One’s match of the day, Sunderland – a main stay of the Premier League until five years ago – meet Rotherham. The former need a win to clinch a top-six place while the Millers require a win to make a decisive move past MK Dons and virtually assure promotion.

It is no wonder Rotherham’s manager Paul Warne, an impressively honest character who has admitted in the past he hates the tension of match days, reckons this is the toughest League One he has ever known.

“Everyone who gets into the play-offs this year will have 80 points, four years ago we went up through Wembley with 74 so the standard of play has been very high for the top 10 teams,” he says.
