Christian Burgess and Michael Doyle will keep their places in Pompey’s side for the trip to Grimsby.
Paul Cook has indicated he will name an unchanged line-up, meaning the duo who came to blows in the Blues’ dressing room against Stevenage will feature. That ensures the visitors will be at full-strength against the Mariners.
Elsewhere, Jack Whatmough is still troubled by the slight hamstring problem which kept him out of the under-23s’ trip to Everton on Monday.
And Curtis Main remains sidelined with an abdominal strain.
