Brett Pitman leads the line for Portsmouth at Bognor - but Wigan target Jamal Lowe or on-loan Rangers midfielder Ross McCrorie not present
Brett Pitman spearheads Pompey’s front line for tonight’s pre-season friendly at Bognor.
The skipper starts for a Blues XI – made up of first team and academy players – after netting the winner in Saturday’s 2-1 win at the Hawks.
Pitman, Christian Burgess, Brandon Haunstrup, Bryn Morris and Andy Cannon are the senior member of Kenny Jackett’s squad who start at Nyewood Lane – along with second-choice keeper Alex Bass and first-year professional Matt Casey.
Meanwhile, third-year scholar Leon Maloney features for Jake Wigley’s side along with academy youngsters Haji Mnoga, Gerard Storey and Eoin Teggart.
There’s no place on the bench for on-loan Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie, who missed the victory at Westleigh Park after being given the weekend off by Kenny Jackett.
Pompey: Bass, Mnoga, Casey, Burgess, Haunstrup, Morris, Storey, Maloney, Cannon, Teggart, Pitman (c).
Subs: Durin, Kavanagh, Dandy, Robb, Hancott, Stanley, Anderson.
