Pompey will be making some changes when they travel to Fleetwood for the League One clash on Tuesday at Highbury Stadium (7.45pm).

Kenny Jackett is weighing up pushing Dion Donohue into midfield.

Nathan Thompson is serving a four-match ban, while Brett Pitman and Gareth Evans are sidelined with hamstring injuries.

Pompey could match Donohue with Ben Close in the centre of midfield, with Sylvain Deslandes coming in at left-back.

Matty Kennedy has recovered from his ankle problem, while attacking midfielder Jez Bedford has been recalled from his loan spell at Poole.

Meanwhile, it’s all change at Fleetwood, with Barry Nicholson taking over the reins following Uwe Rosler’s dismissal.

The caretaker boss has the opportunity to put his stamp on the role – and almost a fully-fit squad to chose from.

His only doubt is George Glendon, sidelined with a calf problem since the start of the month.

Goalkeeper Chris Neal may come in for Alex Cairns, while Bobby Grant is vying with former Pompey player Toumani Diagouraga for a midfield spot.
