Stuart O’Keefe returns to the Pompey starting line-up at Plymouth this afternoon.
He replaces the injured Anton Walkes in the only change from the side that drew with Rochdale last week.
With Matty Kennedy also carrying a knock, it opens up spaces for Conor Chaplin and Sylvain Deslandes on the bench.
Pompey: McGee; Thompson, Whatmough, Clarke, Donohue; O’Keefe; Lowe, Evans, Close, Naismith; Pitman (c)
