It is an availability prompting a link with Fratton Park - but Jackett has scotched such rumours.

When asked if he was interested in Brown, Pompey's boss said: ‘Not that I know of, no.

‘I do know who you mean, he played against us.

‘At the moment, Haunstrup did well Saturday and Donohue’s had spells during the course of the season, they are our contenders at the moment.’
