MK Dons provide the testing opposition for Danny Cowley’s as the play-off contenders arrive at PO4.

The Blues have been bolstered on the eve of the game, as Hayden Carter’s arrival from Championship Blackburn was confirmed at noon.

Pompey are staying tight-lipped over the 22-year-old’s availability for today’s game, however.
