Portsmouth predicted XI and bench v Leyton Orient: Surprise recall likely as Blues make wholesale changes for EFL Trophy game: gallery

Pompey have been given the chance to put their FA Cup defeat at Chesterfield to bed quickly as they travel to Leyton Orient in the EFL Trophy tonight.

The game will be the Blues’ second trip to Brisbane Road this season, with a 4-0 victory recorded against the O’s back in August.

However, there’ll be plenty of changes to the side that easily brushed aside Richie Wellens’ side that memorable day. There’ll also be wholesale changes from Sunday’s loss at the Proact Stadium, with head coach Mousinho having one eye on Saturday’s important league game against Charlton.

A growing injury list, however, means Pompey’s options are starting to stretch, especially if the boss wants to keep first-team regulars fresh for the challenge the Addicks will pose at the weekend.

So what sort of team do we think will take to the pitch at Brisbane Road tonight (kick-off 7pm)? Well, here’s how we think the Blues will line up.
