Jake Wigley is convinced Louis Dennis will get a first-team opportunity at Pompey this season.
The forward continues to await his debut following a summer arrival from Bromley on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old has caught the eye for the reserves, though, scoring in successive matches against Reading and Oxford United on Monday.
And Wigley feels Dennis is giving Kenny Jackett a selection problem.
The first-team coach said: ‘Louis is a good footballer, you can see that from the reserve games he’s played such as Oxford and Reading. They were good performances.
‘He’ll get his chance in the first team. He’s good on the half turn, finds some good pockets and brings other people into play.
‘His chance will come, he always gives 100 per cent, his attitude is brilliant.
‘All he has to keep doing is keep his head down in training – and he’s giving the manager a problem.’
