Jamal Lowe returns to the Pompey starting line-up against Bradford this afternoon.
He replaces Viv Solomon-Otabor in the only change from the side that won at Bury earlier in the week to reach the final of the Checkatrade Trophy.
Christian Burgess has made a quicker than expected recovery from an ankle injury to take his place in the centre of defence.
Pompey: MacGillivray; Thompson, Burgess, Clarke, Brown; Naylor, Close; Lowe, Evans (c), Curtis; Hawkins
