Caretaker-manager Andy Awford will have no fresh concerns and could call upon the same XI that lost to Scunthorpe in Whittingham's final match in charge, which would mean a second start for West Ham loanee Dan Potts.
Ryan Bird recovered from injury in time to make the bench at the weekend and will be hoping for a recall following a five-minute cameo but Patrick Agyemang is unlikely to be considered as he continues to struggle with a thigh problem.
Tom Craddock put in a goal-scoring performance on his return to the side last time out and should keep his place in the Pompey attack.
