Starts for Naismith and Webster
Adam Webster makes his first league start of the season at Newport this afternoon.
He replaces Matt Clarke – who drops to the bench – in one of two changes from the side that beat Cambridge last week.
The other sees Kal Naismith come in wide on the right for Gareth Evans, who starts a three-match ban.
Recent loan arrival Caolan Lavery is on the bench, along with Rommy Boco and fit-again keeper Brian Murphy.
Pompey: McCarey; Davies, Burgess, Webster, Stevens; Doyle (c), Barton; Naismith, Roberts, Bennett; Tubbs
Subs: Murphy, Clarke, Boco, Hollands, Atangana, Chaplin, Lavery
