The centre-half had been stuck on 99 appearances for the Blues after picking up a calf injury in the build up to last month’s defeat to Oldham.

Burgess missed three matches as a result but was straight back into the team for yesterday’s win over MK Dons.

His return helped Pompey pick up a clean sheet in the 2-0 victory.
