Barry Nicholson and David Lucas take charge as Fleetwood host Portsmouth

Fleetwood host Portsmouth on Tuesday evening in what is the Cod Army’s first match since sacking Uwe Rosler.

Boss Rosler lost his job on Saturday after the 3-0 League One loss at Doncaster, 20th-placed Fleetwood’s seventh-successive defeat in all competitions.

Coaches Barry Nicholson and David Lucas are taking charge of Tuesday’s game as the club searches for Rosler’s successor.

Defender Kevin O’Connor could be a doubt having come off at half-time at the Keepmoat Stadium with an injury.

Portsmouth head into the contest with Nathan Thompson, Gareth Evans and Brett Pitman all unavailable after their exits from Saturday’s 3-1 loss at Southend.

Thompson is suspended having been shown the red card, while Evans and Pitman limped off at Roots Hall and are likely to be out for “weeks rather than days”, Pompey boss Kenny Jackett has said.

However, Matty Kennedy, who missed the out at the weekend due to an ankle issue, is fit again.

Jack Whatmough could be back involved as well, having recovered from a knee injury.
