Carson, Devera, Racon, Holmes and Marquis all start
Guy Whittingham makes five changes for the visit of Rochdale this afternoon.
Trevor Carson and Thery Racon come straight into the side after joining Pompey earlier in the week.
There are also starts for Ricky Holmes, John Marquis and a fit-again Joe Devera.
New signing Gavin Mahon had to be content with a place among the substitutes.
Rochdale boss Keith Hill sticks with the same side that beat Wycombe last week.
Pompey: Carson; Devera, Bradley, N’Gala, Painter; Wallace, Ertl (c), Racon, Holmes; Agyemang, Marquis
