The in-form central defender has not recovered from the knee problem that forced him to leave the field after 11 minutes in the recent defeat against Chesterfield. Consequently, Sean Raggett will be partnering with Conor Shaughnessy, and his midweek red card at Leyton Orient is specific to that competition, with no impact on his availability for League One.

Due to Tino Anjorin’s absence for a minimum of eight weeks due to a hamstring tear suffered in the FA Cup loss, Abu Kamara will take his place on the left wing. These changes mark two alterations from the Chesterfield match, and Terry Devlin is granted his third consecutive league start.

In other team news, Denver Hume is not included in the squad, despite his appearance in the midweek Bristol Street Motors Trophy. Additionally, Marlon Pack, who is now fit, is not part of the lineup.

Charlton boasts an impressive record at Fratton Park, having won seven consecutive matches and only suffering one defeat in the last 27 years.

The Pompey lineup is as follows: Norris, Rafferty, Raggett, Shaughnessy, Sparkes, Morrell, Robertson, Lane, Devlin, Kamara, Bishop.

Substitutes: Schofield, Swanson, Towler, Stevenson, Whyte, Saydee, Yengi.
