Aiden O’Brien makes his maiden Pompey start in this evening’s League One contest at Shrewsbury.
He replaces Tyler Walker up front in one of four changes from the side that thrashed Doncaster on home soil.
Ryan Tunnicliffe also comes in for his first start since hurting his hamstring against Bolton back in October, as the injured Michael Jacobs makes way
The other switches see Denver Hume and Mahlon Romeo replace Reeco Hackett and Marcus Harness in the wing-back roles.
Summer signing Jay Mingi could make his debut for the Blues after being named among the substitutes.
Pompey: Bazunu; Carter, Raggett, Robertson (c); Romeo, Thompson, Tunnicliffe, Hume; Curtis; O’Brien, Hirst
