Ross McCrorie has become the fifth member of the Pompey squad who has tested positive for coronavirus.
The club said that McCrorie was like the other four Blues who had tested positive in that he had displayed either mild or no symptoms.
A PFC statement said: 'Previous tests showed that four other members of the squad – James Bolton, Andy Cannon, Haji Mnoga and Sean Raggett – had also contracted the virus.
'All five players displayed mild or no symptoms, but are self-isolating in accordance with government guidelines. The club are now waiting on the results of one more test, which is for a member of the backroom team.
'We urge everyone to continue following government advice to help limit the spread of this virus. Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.'
