Once again there is no place for Gareth Evans, Oli Hawkins, Paul Downing, Brett Pitman and Brandon Haunstrup.

Meanwhile, Christian Burgess will make his 200th Pompey appearance since joining in the summer of 2015 from Peterborough.

The Blues are today seeking to make it a club record-equalling eight successive victories in all competitions.

Victory over the fifth-placed Black Cats would also enhance their promotion ambition.

Pompey: Bass, Bolton, Burgess, Raggett, Seddon, McGeehan, Naylor, Williams, Cannon, Curtis, Marquis.

Subs: MacGillivray, Harrison, Whatmough, Brown, Close, McCrorie, Harness.
