Pompey will field an Academy side for the team’s last pre-season fixture at Dorchester.

The Blues will send a squad without any senior players to the Avenue for tonight’s match, which is a testimonial for Magpies player Mark Jermyn.

There was a chance Pompey could field a string of first-teamers after they were forced to scrap their friendly with Real Betis on Saturday because of a delayed flight back from their summer tour to America.

But boss Steve Cotterill is happy his squad have built up enough fitness over the summer ahead of Saturday’s Championship opener against Middlesbrough.
