Craig Hignett has made two changes for this afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two game against Portsmouth at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).
Billy Paynter returns to the starting line-up after missing the last five games with a hamstring injury and he will skipper the side from the centre of the attack.
Dan Jones is also given his opportunity at left-back, in the absence of Jake Carroll who misses today’s game with a calf injury.
