Brett Pitman returns to the Pompey starting line-up at Walsall this evening.
The Blues skipper replaces Gareth Evans in one of three changes from the side that were beaten at Charlton on Saturday.
Ronan Curtis is out after catching his finger in a door, with Viv Solomon-Otabor taking his place on the wing.
The other change sees a fit-again Omar Bogle lead the line, with Oli Hawkins dropping to the bench.
Pompey: MacGillivray; Thompson, Burgess, Clarke, Brown; Naylor, Close; Lowe, Pitman (c), Solomon-Otabor; Bogle
Subs: Bass, Walkes, Haunstrup, Donohue, Evans, Vaughan, Hawkins
