With the Blues having no recognised senior strikers available, Ronan Curtis looks set to be lead the line.

Curtis is back after missing last Saturday’s 2-1 win at Shrewsbury when on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.

He’s the only change from that New Meadow victory. Ben Close continues his Pompey revival and starts a second successive game in central midfield next to Tom Naylor.

We got to earn the right to win. League positions are irrelevant. It's on the day that counts. #PUP

@MrFinlayW

Cracking Line Up slightly confused no attacking support on the bench, would have kept Jacobs on the subs bench and introduced Cannon back in! #Pompey Up the Blues!

@thiskidloftus

Its definitely not the time to test academy players as we need to take each game seriously and no room for erorrs. #PUP
