Portsmouth defender ruled out of Bradford City visit
Nathan Thompson is suspended for the Blues' weekend trip to Bradford City.
Pompey's right-back collected his fifth booking of the season during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Accrington Stanley, automatically earning a one-match ban.
It marked his first game back having missed the draw with Burton to attend the birth of his son.
On that occasionÂ Anton Walkes deputised, and the former Spurs man is expected to once more come into Kenny Jackett's side for Saturday's Valley Parade encounter.
Thompson has made 53 appearances since becoming Jackett's first signingÂ as Pompey boss in JuneÂ 2017.
