Kenny Jackett goes with the same starting XI who picked up a 3-1 win at Rochdale on Saturday.

The only change comes on the bench where Anton Walkes is restored in place of Christian Burgess, who misses out on being in the 18.

Coventry are without Conor Chaplin, who misses the games as part of the terms of his loan move to the Ricoh Arena, which becomes permanent in January.

But former Pompey skipper Michael Doyle captains Mark Robins' side, with ex-Blues Tom Davies and Dom Hyam in the starting XI. 

Former Pompey keeper Liam O'Brien is on the bench for the home side.
