The striker, who was on crutches nine days ago, has recovered from a knee and ankle injury to be included in Kenny Jackett’s 18-man squad against his former club.

He bolsters an attacking bench, which includes Anton Walkes as the sole defender in a match the Blues must win to maintain their promotion ambition.

Jackett names an unchanged side for tonight’s Fratton Park clash, sticking with James Vaughan leading the line.
