Pompey are unchanged for this afternoon's festive clash with Sunderland at Fratton Park.
Kenny Jackett sticks with the same side that drew with Barnsley in their previous encounter a fortnight ago.
However, there is room among the substitutes for a fit-again David Wheeler following his hamstring injury.
Pompey: MacGillivray; N.Thompson, Whatmough, Clarke, Brown; B.Thompson, Naylor; Lowe, Evans (c), Curtis; Hawkins
Subs: Bass, Walkes, Burgess, Close, Wheeler, Green, Pitman
