The Hawks have signed AFC Bournemouth centre-back Daniel Strugnell on a month-long loan deal.
With regular centre-half Ryan Woodford suspended, Strugnell comes straight into the squad for Saturday’s Blue Square Bet South clash with Bromley at Westleigh Park.
Strugnell is a first year professional, who has made one Football League appearance for the Cherries.
The Hawks have also been boosted by the news Pompey have allowed full-back Dan Butler to extend his loan period for another month.
