Portsmouth boss Paul Cook is looking at tomorrow's game against Blackpool as a perfect chance to improve his side's record on the road.

Despite sitting in second place in the League Two table, Portsmouth have only won one away game so far this campaign - a 1-0 win at Exeter.

And after Saturday's 5-1 thrashing of Barnet at Fratton Park, Cook sees Tuesday night's game as a perfect opportunity to improve on their record.

Speaking of the record, he said: "It is what it is. We're the same team after Barnet as we'll be the same team after Blackpool.

"We are doing our best.

"We'll have a tough week of travelling but it's a long season full of ups and downs."

There are no new fresh injury worries for his side, and Cook is likely to keep his winning side.

Noel Hunt remains absent after being kept out of the squad at the weekend. Pompey's other continued absentee is Drew Talbot, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Blackpool have more injuries to worry about, with Sam Slocombe likely to be unavailable after suffering a groin injury during the game at Crewe.

Mark Yeates was also brought into the line-up to replace the injured Brad Potts.

Danny Pugh is also likely to miss out again, while Jack Redshaw remains sidelined.
