Close back as Portsmouth boss rings the changes
Ben Close is among four changes for Pompey's tough trip to Accrington.
With Dion Donohue injured and Tom Naylor suspended, Kenny Jackett has matched Close and Ben Thompson as his holding-midfield pair.
With Thompson reverting to that role, it allows Gareth Evans to come into the side following his substitute appearance against Burton.
The other changes are Christian Burgess in for Jack Whatmough, while Nathan Thompson replaces Anton Walkes at right-back following the birth of his son.
Whatmough and Walkes instead drop to a bench which also sees Brandon Haunstrup included.
