Oliver Hawkins returns to the Pompey side to face Scunthorpe at Glanford Park this afternoon.
The striker replaces Conor Chaplin in one of two changes from the side that beat Fleetwood last Saturday.
Dion Donohue also comes in at left-back, with Damien McCrory’s knee injury preventing him from featuring.
