Owen Dale makes his Pompey debut in this evening’s Carabao Cup tie at Cardiff.
The winger comes straight into the side after completing a season-long loan switch from Blackpool on Sunday.
Zak Swanson also makes his full competitive bow, as Danny Cowley makes six changes from the side held to a draw by Lincoln at the weekend.
Dane Scarlett is given a first start up front, with Ronan Curtis, Jay Mingi and Haji Mnoga also included in the starting line-up.
New arrival Tom Lowery is included on a nine-man bench that also includes the likes of Michael Jacobs and Colby Bishop.
Pompey: Griffiths; Swanson, Mnoga, Raggett (c), Rafferty; Dale, Mingi, Pack, Curtis; Pigott, Scarlett
Subs: Oluwayemi, Freeman, Morrison, Thompson, Jewitt-White, Lowery, Hackett, Jacobs, Bishop
