Kenny Jackett delivers message to Portsmouth squad ahead of Sunderland test
Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett is expecting another difficult test against promotion rivals Sunderland this afternoon.
The Black Cats, fresh from their 1-0 win over Tranmere Rovers, are unbeaten in nine games.
Ahead of today’s 3pm KO, Jackett told the Portsmouth News: “It’s a big game and Sunderland is a fantastic game for us.
“We’re both big clubs and Sunderland, like ourselves, have been in good form of late and are looking to get one of those three promotion places.
“It’ll be a tough game and there will be a great atmosphere. We are determined to do our best and see if we can continue our run.
“Both sides were all out to go out to get up last season and got into the play-offs. Both sides will again be going right to the end to get one of those three promotion places.”
