Ronan Curtis returns to Pompey’s side to spearhead their top-of-the-table clash at Peterborough.

The winger was absent from the previous two matches through international duty with the Republic of Ireland.

However, he replaces knee-injury victim Andre Green on the left-hand side of the attacking three in Kenny Jackett’s side at London Road this afternoon.

That represents one of two changes for the Blues, with Ben Close also handed a recall.

The midfielder comes in for Ben Thompson, who drops to the bench after a disappointing display against Shrewsbury.

Pompey: MacGillivray, N.Thompson, Burgess, Clarke, Brown, Close, Naylor, Curtis, Evans. Lowe, Hawkins.

Sub: McGee, Rose, Pitman, Mason, Wheeler, B.Thompson, Haunstrup.
