The 21-year-old has been absent from the Blues starting XI after he was sent off on his Pompey debut against Shrewsbury on the opening day of the season.

He’s fallen behind Ben Close in manager Kenny Jackett’s pecking order, following some impressive displays and goals from the academy product in recent matches.

However, after an eye-catching cameo appearance as a make-shift right-back against the Black Cats, has the opportunity arisen for McCrorie to re-establish himself as a Pompey starter in a new position.
