The striker, who is available on loan from Norwich, lines-up alongside John Marquis for this afternoon’s friendly against the Championship side.

He netted a 26-minute hat-trick on his Pompey bow against the Hawks and has continued to impress, most recently on the St George’s Park training camp.

Ahadme is the only triallist in Danny Cowley’s starting XI for the Blues’ latest fixture ahead of the League One campaign.
