Dion Donohue is looking to provide a key role for Pompey for the remainder of the season.
The versatile 25-year-old has endured a stop-start campaign because of a series of injuries that started in the summer.
It means that he has been limited to just 11 appearances, as the Blues try to secure League One promotion.
Donohue has recently returned from his latest spell on the sidelines and is hopeful of making an impact.
“This one has been more frustrating for me because of the time I’ve been out, although I think I’ve done alright whenever I’ve come back,” he says in the official matchday magazine for tonight’s contest
“Now I’ve just got to keep working hard to make sure I can return to the team. The latest injury was an impact one from a tackle, rather than a muscle problem.
"There are a lot of important games coming up over the next few weeks and I want to be involved in them."
“On every occasion when I’ve returned, I feel even stronger have been pleased with my reactions to each one.
“There are a lot of important games coming up over the next few weeks and I want to be involved in them. We’ve got a competitive squad, though, and it’s not going to be easy to break back in.”
