That’s the message from The News’ readers to Pompey boss Paul Cook ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Notts County.

Blues fans would like to see four alterations to the starting XI who failed to beat Mansfield Town at Fratton Park last Saturday.

Available-again Gareth Evans, Nigel Atangana, Conor Chaplin and Matt Tubbs are all deserving of a start at Meadow Lane according to readers.

That means no place in Cook’s line-up for Kal Naismith, Danny Hollands, Rommy Boco and Caelan Lavery.

In goal, Brian Murphy earned 100-per-cent of votes with young back-up Alex Bass primed for a spot on the bench.

At the back familiar faces Ben Davies (100 per cent), Christian Burgess (98.5 per cent), Adam Webster (93.3 per cent) and Enda Stevens (97.8 per cent) were all selected.

Atangana (44.8 per cent), held off competition from Hollands (20.9 per cent) and Adam Barton (33.6 per cent) to partner skipper Michael Doyle (99.3 per cent) in the centre of the park.

While attacking-midfield trio Kyle Bennett (88.8 per cent), Evans (90.3 per cent) and Chaplin (56.7 per cent) got the nod.

Up front, Tubbs (46.3 per cent) was preferred to Lavery (26.1 per cent) and fit-again Adam McGurk (26.1 per cent).
