Lavery and Burgess return
Caolan Lavery returns to the Pompey side against Hartlepool this afternoon.
The on-loan striker – who was ineligible for last week’s FA Cup triumph over Accrington – replaces Adam McGurk.
The only other change sees Christian Burgess come in for Matt Clarke at the heart of the Blues defence.
Pompey: Murphy; Davies, Burgess, Webster, Stevens; Hollands, Doyle (c); Evans, McNulty, Bennett; Lavery
Subs: Bass, Clarke, Haunstrup, Tollitt, Close, McGurk, Chaplin
