Kal Naismith is the man readers of The News want to see included in Pompey’s side for tomorrow’s game at Cambridge United.
Having picked an identical side to the one named by boss Paul Cook in last weekend’s goalless draw with Yeovil, readers have opted to make one change to that line-up, with Naismith (59.6 per cent) edging out Gareth Evans (39 per cent) as one of three attacking-midfield choices.
Kyle Bennett (82.9 per cent) and Gary Roberts (96.1 per cent) complete the trio, whose job will be to support Matt Tubbs (63.1 per cent) in the lone striker’s role at Abbey Stadium.
That’s after last season’s top goalscorer in League Two was preferred to Conor Chaplin (36.9 per cent) as the side’s chief attacking threat.
No suprises in between the sticks or at the back as Wolves loanee Aaron McCarey (81.6 per cent) received the nod in the nets ahead of Brian Murphy (17 per cent) who is returning from a groin injury and young understudy Alex Bass (1.4 per cent).
In defence, tried and tested back four Ben Davies (98.6 per cent), Christian Burgess (96.5 per cent), Matt Clarke (89 per cent) and Enda Stevens (92.9 per cent) are selected.
Skipper Michael Doyle (92.9 per cent) is an overwhelming selection for one of two holding midfield spots – with Adam Barton (51.8 per cent) edging out Nigel Atangana (46.1 per cent).
