Kyle Bennett back in Pompey's team for today's visit of Bury.

The midfielder had replaced Conor Chaplin at half-time in last weekend's 1-0 victory over Charlton.

Pompey: McGee, Thompson, Burgess, Clarke, Haunstrup, Rose, O'Keefe, Evans, Bennett, Lowe, Pitman.

Subs: Bass, Chaplin, Close, Donohue, Talbot, Kennedy, Main.
