Christian Burgess returns to the Pompey starting line-up against MK Dons this afternoon.
The centre-back has recovered from a calf injury to replace Curtis Main in the only change from the side that won at Gillingham last week.
That means Oliver Hawkins can return to his natural position up front, having impressed in the back-line at Priestfield.
Pompey: McGee; Thompson, Burgess, Clarke, Donohue; O’Keefe (c), Close; Lowe, Bennett, Kennedy; Hawkins
Subs: Bass, Talbot, Haunstrup, Rose, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Evans, Naismith
