Pompey have made three changes to face Coventry City tonight (7.45pm).

On-loan Rangers man Ross McCrorie replaces Anton Walkes at right-back after an impressive substitute cameo in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Sunderland.

Walkes has been omitted from Kenny Jackett’s squad completely. 

Meanwhile, Sean Raggett has been handed his full Blues debut. He comes in for Christian Burgess in central defence.

The other switch is Gareth Evans replacing Andy Cannon in midfield.

Pompey’s starting XI has caused plenty of debate among the Fratton faithful. Here’s how they reacted on Twitter...


McCrorie changed the game. Raggett I've been wanting to see, Evans better at set pieces and crossing, Marquis to finally get the delivery, he says. #PUP #Pompey


Very happy with this


Cannon dropped when he’s been playing well?


Is Kenny aware Pitman scores goals.....no just me okay


Cannon & Harrison should be starting....!! Glad to see McCrorie in the line up!


Don’t think Curtis and brown deserve to start #pompey


Bold to play McCrorie at RB over Walkes and Bolton but he understandable as to why. Looking forward to seeing Raggett make his debut and Evans back in the squad. Need good deliveries if we actually want to score. Another strong looking bench. #Pompey


Harsh to drop Cannon for Evans who done nothing really to influence the game Sat expect for that shot?

Cannon should 100% be in the team.
