Harvey White returns to the Pompey starting line-up for today’s lunchtime League One contest at MK Dons.
He replaces Ben Close – who is sidelined with a groin injury – in the only change from the side that drew at Crewe earlier in the week.
Manager Danny Cowley has confirmed that Andy Cannon is managing a back problem and only fit enough to claim a place on the bench.
He is joined among the substitutes by former Dons centre-back Paul Downing and teenage striker Alfie Stanley.
Pompey: MacGillivray; Johnson, Whatmough, Raggett, Daniels; Naylor (c), White; Harness, Williams, Curtis; Marquis
Subs: Ward, Bolton, Downing, Nicolaisen, Cannon, Byers, Stanley
