Pompey welcome Helge Riise
Portsmouth will add Bjorn Helge Riise to their squad for the visit of Peterborough.
The 28-year-old Norway midfielder has joined Pompey on loan from Fulham and could make an immediate debut against Posh.
Boss Steve Cotterill is still without winger Luke Varney and striker Dave Kitson while defender Aaron Mokoena is a doubt after limping off against Blackpool on Saturday.
Varney serves the second game of his three-match ban following his red card at Hull last week, and Kitson is missing with a rib injury.
Norwegian forward Erik Huseklepp should keep his place in attack after his first goal for the club secured a dramatic 1-0 win over Blackpool on Saturday.
Peterborough will be without Lee Tomlin, while Gabriel Zakuani is a doubt for the game at Fratton Park.
Tomlin is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering suspected ligament damage during the defeat to West Ham on Saturday.
Posh will not know how long the forward will be out for until he has undergone a scan on his knee but manager Darren Ferguson is fearing the worst.
Zakuani received pain-killing injections to enable him to nurse a broken bone in his foot through another 90 minutes at Upton Park.
However, two games in quick succession could cause further damage and a late decision will be made on the defender's fitness. On-loan Manchester United youngster Scott Wootton is on stand-by to replace him.
Meanwhile, Ben Gordon has been recalled from his loan spell by Chelsea because of his failure to break into the first team. Gordon has been unable to dislodge summer signing Craig Alcock from the left-back spot.
Huseklepp gaffe punishes Pompey
Portsmouth's Erik Huseklepp scored an own goal in the dying seconds to gift Peterborough their first away win of the season with a dramatic 3-2 victory.
The Norwegian striker scored a last-gasp goal at the right end to give Portsmouth all three points on Saturday but he diverted the ball past his own goalkeeper to give Posh a dramatic win.
The visitors led twice following a brace from Lee Frecklington but it seemed as though Benjani had rescued a point for Portsmouth with his first goal since returning to Fratton Park.
Frecklington had given away the penalty which West Ham converted in Posh's 1-0 defeat at Upton Park on Saturday but he broke the deadlock in the fourth minute.
The midfielder hit a snap-shot with the outside of his boot from the edge of the box and Pompey's goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown could only turn the ball onto the underside of the bar before it dropped over the line.
Posh's lead lasted just five minutes before Gabriel Zakuani turned into his own net.
Huseklepp drilled a dangerous angled shot across the box which was heading wide until Zakuani volleyed it past Posh's goalkeeper Paul Jones with an attempted clearance.
Yet Darren Ferguson's men, who had not scored on the travels in over a month, were ahead once again after 21 minutes.
The hosts failed to clear their lines and the ball eventually fell to Frecklington who promptly lashed the ball into the top corner for his second of the evening.
Posh seemed intent on extending their lead rather than being pegged back again, with Grant McCann and Paul Taylor both going close.
Another Peterborough goal always looked likely and Ashdown failed to keep hold of a thunderous George Boyd strike, but Emile Sinclair could not profit from the rebound.
There was still time in the first half for Ashdown to induce more panic into the Fratton Park faithful when he gifted Posh possession with a woeful pass, but the visitors could not capitalise.
Pompey started the second-half sharper and Zakuani redeemed himself following his earlier error, throwing himself in-front of Benjani's goal-bound effort.
But the Zimbabwean went one better in the 54th minute to pull the hosts level again. Huseklepp was again the architect with another low ball across the box which Benjani prodded home for his first Portsmouth goal since 2008.
The momentum was now with the home side and Jones had to deny both Hayden Mullins and David Norris before Zakuani and Craig Alcock cleared the ball off the line following a flurry of Pompey chances.
But Peterborough snatched a victory at the end when substitute Ryan Tunnicliffe raced clear and Huseklepp slid in to divert his shot past the hapless Ashdown.
