Unsurprisingly, the Blues’ head coach sticks with the same starting XI which secured an impressive 2-0 victory over Crewe at the weekend.

That result represented a 100 per cent winning start to the League One season for Pompey, having now won their opening two league fixtures to move into second spot.

It means Reeco Hackett-Fairchild keeps his place after making his full league debut for the Blues in that triumph over the Railwaymen.
