Conor Chaplin was handed his first league start in September for today's visit of Plymouth.

The striker last lined-up for Kenny Jacket's side in the 4-1 Fratton Park victory over Fleetwood.

However, with Brett Pitman still out with a hamstring problem and Chaplin having netted off the bench at Peterborough, he was named against the Pilgrims.

That was one of three changes made by Jackett against Derek Adams' side.

With Christian Burgess suspended, Matt Clarke moved over from left-back and Brandon Haunstrup came in.

Elsewhere, Gareth Evans was pushed up onto the right-hand side of midfield, with Nathan Thompson recalled to right-back.

Pompey: McGee, Thompson, Hawkins, Clarke, Haunstrup, Rose, Close, Evans, Naismith, Lowe, Chaplin.

Subs: Bass, O'Keefe, Kennedy, Main, Bennett, Talbot, May.
