Lee Williamson could return to the Portsmouth starting line-up for the visit of Preston.

The midfielder shook off a calf problem to feature as a late substitute in the 2-2 draw at Tranmere last weekend.

Defenders Mustapha Dumbuya (knee) and Gabor Gyepes (heart palpitations) were also passed fit to face the leaders so caretaker boss Guy Whittingham has a full-strength squad to choose from.

Simon Eastwood is expected to keep his place in goal after an impressive display, meaning recent signing Phil Smith will be on the bench again.

Midfielder Darel Russell and forward Jake Jervis will be facing their former club.

Pompey are without a win in nine matches but have drawn their last two having lost the previous seven.
