Pompey fans have wished Brett Pitman well in his recovery from back-to-back operations.
The Blues skipper went under the knife on Monday to fix a broken nose and then again on Tuesday for a troublesome knee.
The latter is likely to keep the former AFC Bournemouth and Ipswich Town striker sidelined for up to a month.
Pompey supporters know how significant his absence may be to their hopes, with Pitman currently topping the League One goal charts with nine strikes.
Via our Facebook page, Portsmouth FC – The News, they sent their best wishes before debating who may be tasked with filling the void.
Keith Attrill said: ‘Gutted! Speedy recovery. And I mean speedy.’
Denise Winter echoed those thoughts, while Trevor Sutch added: ‘Get well soon super Brett.’
Ian Piper said: ‘I could see he was in pain for last 15 mins but he stayed on as all our substitutions had been made. I hope he is only out for two-to-four weeks.’
Meanwhile, Paul Bridges, Lorraine Wells and Lewis Grady turned their attentions to who may profit from Pitman’s absence.
Bridges said: ‘Hopefully Brett will make a quick recovery and be back as good as new.
‘I’d give Chaplin and Lowe a go up front.’
Wells agreed with bringing Chaplin back in but is interested in seeing a different partnership.
She said: ‘We will need to dig in for sure to cope without Pitman.
‘Be interesting to see Chaplin with Hawkins as long as he’s not playing centre-back!’
Grady, though, is keen for one of last season’s favourites to be drafted back in to league action.
He added: ‘I’d like to see Naismith get his run in the side while Pitman is injured. He’s been unlucky in my opinion.’
Pitman’s lay-off is the latest in a long line of Pompey injuries this season.
Tareiq Holmes-Dennis and Jack Whatmough are long-term casualties, while Damien McCrory has also been ruled out for a month following his own knee operation.
Blues fan Aaron Grimble added: ‘I’ve never known so many injuries. I’m fed up with this season already.’
