Portsmouth will be looking to bounce back from three successive league defeats when they take on Plymouth at Fratton Park this evening.
3⃣ changes from Saturday's defeat
➡️ Kieron Freeman, John Marquis, Joe Morrell#Pompey

The manner of the 2-1 reverse at home to Cambridge last time out will have concerned Danny Cowley and he has responded by making three changes for the game tonight, with Kieron Freeman, Joe Morrell and John Marquis all coming back into the XI.
Pompey won’t find it easy against Ryan Lowe’s side, as they have enjoyed a fantastic start to the season, and they currently sit fourth in the table ahead of the trip to the south coast.
It’s unclear what formation the Blues are going with tonight, with a back three seemingly a possibility from the personnel selected, although it could easily be a back four as well.
8 of these 20 players never scored a goal for Portsmouth – Can you identify them?
The changes certainly got the fans talking, with the XI dividing opinion amongst the support. Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
5-3-2 // 3-5-2 with Willo and Freeman CB?

Drop Azeez and Harrison with no service. Start Curtis and Harness with no end product 👍

Need to push more players forward … playing the 3 centre mids is a bit defensive at home .. specially morrell who doesn't score many goals, williams who doesn't either .
