Kenny Jackett hands debuts to four players for Pompey’s League One opener at Shrewsbury.
John Marquis, Marcus Harness, Ross McCrorie and Paul Downing all make their competitive Blues bows.
They could be joined by James Bolton – who was signed from the Shrews – and Ellis Harrison, who are both named on the bench.
Brett Pitman is also among the substitutes, meaning that Gareth Evans wears the captain’s armband.
Pompey: MacGillivray; Walkes, Downing, Burgess, Brown; McCrorie, Naylor; Harness, Evans (c), Curtis; Marquis
Subs: Bass, Bolton, Haunstrup, Close, Cannon, Pitman, Harrison
