Portsmouth are lacking the services of Carl Dickinson for the visit of Leyton Orient.
The defender, borrowed from Watford, picked up his fifth booking of the season in Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Doncaster and is suspended for what is the final match of his loan spell.
However, West Brom loanee Scott Allan returns from a three-match ban to boost freefalling Pompey, who have lost their last six matches.
Gabor Gyepes shrugged off an illness to face Rovers and is set to continue in defence, while midfielder Akos Buzsaky has been struggling with a hamstring complaint and may return.
Paul Benson made his debut against Dean Saunders' side following his loan move from Swindon and, despite Pompey going through their fifth game without a goal, is expected to partner Izale McLeod again up front.
