Kenny Jackett is confident Pompey’s injuries will not prove too serious.

The Blues were hit by a trio of first-half issues in Saturday’s 3-0 romp over Plymouth.

Oli Hawkins (back) was forced off before the break, with Jack Whatmough (hamstring) and Anton Walkes (groin) going off at the interval.

Jackett said: ‘We got three injuries in the first half, which was unusual.

‘Oli has felt his back quite badly, hopefully it’s not too bad. That’s the best of them.

‘Whatmough has a tight hamstring and Walkes a groin injury.

‘None of them seem too bad, though.

‘It’s slightly frustrating and unusual, but we have the team and the squad to cope with it.’
