Portsmouth will again be without David Connelly when Bury visit Fratton Park.

Connolly has yet to recover from the calf strain he suffered last month and joins fellow striker Tom Craddock (knee) and full-back Marcos Painter (calf) on the sidelines.

Goalkeeper Trevor Carson will also miss out as he is on loan from the Shakers, meaning a recall for either John Sullivan or Phil Smith.

But defender Danny East and midfielder Simon Ferry are close to recovering from hamstring injuries and could be involved, while striker John Marquis plays the final game of his loan spell from Millwall.

On-loan striker Danny Hylton could be in line for his debut as managerless Shakers start life without Kevin Blackwell.

The Shakers axed Blackwell on Monday morning after a run of seven games without a victory and, just 24 hours later, Hylton was brought in to Gigg Lane on a deal from Rotherham.

Ronnie Jepson will take charge on the south coast but he will be without midfielder Marco Navas, who will not travel due to a hamstring injury.

Jepson will run the rule over Craig Jones (groin) before determining if he can feature but striker Tope Obadeyi (groin) will return to contention.
