Ben Close is fit enough to start for Pompey against Swindon at the County Ground this evening.

The midfielder has recovered from a groin problem to replace Harvey White in one of two changes from the side beaten by MK Dons at the weekend.

Jack Whatmough starts a four-match ban following his red card at Stadium MK, so Rasmus Nicolaisen comes into the back-line.

Former Pompey striker Brett Pitman is named skipper for the hosts, who know that defeat could see them relegated tonight.

Pompey: MacGillivray; Johnson, Raggett, Nicolaisen, Daniels; Naylor (c), Close; Harness, Williams, Curtis; Marquis
Subs: Ward, Bolton, Downing, Cannon, Byers, White, Stanley
