Jamal Lowe is suspended, Louis Dennis is a slight doubt after picking up a knee injury and Oli Hawkins remains sidelined with a calf problem. 

To make matters worse, Andy Cannon is cup-tied having featured for Rochdale in the competition this campaign. 

And youngsters Dan Smith and Brad Lethbridge have also represented Bognor in the second-qualifying round against Whitstable.

Matt Casey too played for Gosport Borough against Ramsgate in the FA Cup. 

Nathan Thompson (hamstring) and Luke McGee (wrist) remain on the treatment table. 

Meanwhile, Steve McClaren will field a strong Hoops side.

Rangers are, however, without veteran defender Angel Rangel, who is sidelined with a thigh injury.

On-loan Brighton striker Tomer Hemed is also absent until at least the middle of next month after undergoing a hernia operation in December.

United States international Geoff Cameron (ankle) won’t be involved at Fratton Park.
