Pompey named a youthful reserve side for tonight’s Premier League Cup clash with Barnsley.

Drew Talbot represented the sole senior player in Robbie Blake’s team for the Westleigh Park encounter.

Others with first-team experience included Alex Bass, Adam May and Joe Hancott.

Yet it was a fresh-faced side in the Group F clash, with Kenny Jackett keeping an eye on selection for Saturday’s Checkatrade Trophy fixture with Northampton.

Pompey: Bass, Talbot, Dandy, Casey, Hancott, Smith, Bedford, Maloney, Widdrington, May, Mayes.

Subs: Pitman, Lethbridge, Read, Brooks, Johnston.
