The 36-year-old has been named in the Blues' reserve side facing Leicester City in the Premier League Cup at Nyewood Lane.

Previous clubs consist of Leeds, Swindon and Brentford, while he has appeared eight times for the Republic of Ireland.

Also included in Pompey's side are Jack Whatmough and Brandon Haunstrup, making comebacks following injury.

Pompey: Bass, Dandy, Whatmough, Casey. Haunstrup, Bedford, Chaplin, Douglas, Widdrington, Lethbridge, Smith.
