Ronan Curtis returns to the Pompey starting line-up for today’s Checkatrade Trophy final clash with Sunderland at Wembley.
The forward has recovered from severing his finger and replaces Gareth Evans in the only change from the side that won at Shrewsbury last week.
Brett Pitman skippers the side and will continue in the ‘number 10’ role just behind Omar Bogle.
Pompey: MacGillivray; Thompson, Burgess, Clarke, Brown; Naylor, Close; Lowe, Pitman (c), Curtis; Bogle
Subs: Bass, Walkes, Haunstrup, May, Evans, Vaughan, Hawkins
