One change for Cobblers clash
Johnny Ertl returns to the Pompey side against Northampton this afternoon.
He replaces the injured Simon Ferry (hamstring) in the only change from the side that beat Dagenham & Redbridge on Boxing Day.
Marcos Painter is fit enough to keep his place at left-back having also limped off with a hamstring problem three days ago.
Pompey: Carson; East, Devera, Bradley, Painter; Racon; Wallace, Ertl (c), Padovani, Holmes; Agyemang
Subs: Sullivan, N’Gala, Whatmough, Maloney, Harris, Connolly, Bird
