Boss Tony Mowbray has made two changes to the side that drew against Oldham for the trip to Portsmouth on Tuesday night.
Heading out of the side are Amari'i Bell and Danny Graham, with Adam Armstrong and Dominic Samuel coming into the XI.
Both Bell and Graham take their place on the bench, alongside the returning Darragh Lenihan.
The inclusion of the Irishman results in Paul Caddis dropping out of the squad, and Mowbray keeps the faith with Lewis Travis, who is part of the squad.
Hosts Portsmouth welcome back Christian Burgess back into their side, after the defender missed out on the win at MK Dons at the weekend through suspension.
Conor Chaplin earns a start after bagging a 90th minute winner at Stadium MK at the weekend.
