John Marquis: Set for his Pompey debut

John Marquis could make his Portsmouth debut against Fleetwood.

Marquis has joined Pompey on a month's loan from Millwall and will be added to the squad along with fellow striker David Connolly, who is back from a three-match ban.

But full-back Yassin Moutaouakil starts a three-game suspension after he was sent off towards the end of last weekend's 2-1 win at Burton.

Centre-half Joe Devera is a doubt after he limped off after only eight minutes against Albion with a hamstring problem but left-back Marcos Painter could return following his hamstring injury.

Fleetwood boss Graham Alexander once again has plenty of options when his team travel to Fratton Park to face Portsmouth.

The Cod Army have so far been very fortunate with injuries and Alexander is expected to again have a full squad at his disposal on the south coast.

However, Alexander has not been afraid to alter his starting line-up this season and numerous players will be hoping to be recalled for a team currently third in the Sky Bet League Two table.

Striker David Bell, who has scored three times this season, and club captain Mark Roberts are two of those eager for a chance.
