Five changes for League Two clash
David Connolly makes his first start since the end of September at AFC Wimbledon this afternoon.
The striker is one of five changes from the side that exited the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy at Newport on Tuesday night.
Patrick Agyemang returns from a thigh injury to partner him up front, while Simon Ferry is fit enough to start following a hamstring strain.
Jed Wallace returns from a one-match ban, while there is also a start for skipper Johnny Ertl in midfield.
Tom Craddock, Ryan Bird and Shaun Cooper all drop to the bench, while Ricky Holmes and Romain Padovani are not in the matchday squad.
Pompey: Carson; Devera, N’Gala, Bradley, East; Wallace, Ertl (c), Ferry, Barcham; Agyemang, Connolly
Subs: Smith, Moutaouakil, Painter, Cooper, Racon, Craddock, Bird
