Tom Naylor returns to skipper the Pompey side against high-flying Peterborough at Fratton Park this afternoon.
He has recovered from a hamstring problem to replace Anton Walkes in one of two changes from the side that beat Altrincham in the FA Cup last Saturday.
Marcus Harness was a doubt with a knee problem and is named on the bench, with Ryan Williams coming in on the right.
Pompey: MacGillivray; Haunstrup, Hawkins, Burgess, Brown; Close, Naylor (c); Williams, Marquis, Curtis; Harrison
Subs: Bass, Downing, Walkes, McCrorie, Evans, Harness, Pitman
