Gareth Evans returns to skipper the Pompey team against Bristol Rovers this afternoon
He replaces Omar Bogle in one of three changes from the side that drew at Southend at the weekend.
Tom Naylor is straight back into the starting line-up after serving a two-match ban, while there is also a place for Ronan Curtis.
Bogle, Bryn Morris and Omar Bogle all drop to the bench, where they are joined by a fit-again Dion Donohue.
Pompey: MacGillivray; Walkes, Burgess, Clarke, Brown; Close, Naylor; Lowe, Evans (c), Curtis; Hawkins
Subs: Bass, Haunstrup, Morris, Donohue, Solomon-Otabor, Vaughan, Bogle
