Stuart O'Keefe earns a recall to Pompey's side today.

The midfielder is given the nod to replace the injured Anton Walkes for the clash with their fellow play-off contenders.

His first start since mid-December, it represents the only change to the side which drew 3-3 at Rochdale last weekend.

With O'Keefe stepping up from the bench to making the starting XI, Conor Chaplin is recalled to feature among the substitutes.
