Portsmouth face a very tough challenge in the Capital One Cup, when they take on Premiership side, Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.
The Blues caused an upset in the first round, by knocking out Peterborough United. It`s been nearly 15 years since Pompey have knocked out a higher League club out of a cup game.
We could see former Pompey players Asmir Begovic, Marc Wilson and Peter Crouch in the Stoke lineup.
Awford said on the official website ” We’ll just go about our business, give it everything we’ve got and try to get another positive result.”
Awford is likely to make changes to the squad, with the likes of Andy Barcham, Jed Wallace and Jack Whatmough all pushing for recalls. The Pompey boss has been rotating the squad with good effect so far this season.
Webster looks set to fill the right-back position, who was rested on Saturday`s 1-0 victory over Oxford. Alex Wynter will miss the Cup game due to a head injury he picked up during the Peterborough win, in the first round of the Cup.
Agyemang, East, Pope, Craddock and Fogden are still sidelined.
Stoke will be without Stephen Ireland and Glenn Whelan. Ireland has a rib injury, and although Whelan has recovered from a foot injury, he looks set to be rested ahead of their Premiership game away to Manchester City on Saturday.
Bojan Krkic (rib) and Phil Bardsley (Knee) both face late fitness tests.
Mark Hughes has confirmed that Victor Moses will make his debut for the Potters after recently joining on a season-long loan from Chelsea.
It will be the first time the two sides have played in a competitive match since February 2010, in the Premiership. Pompey did play them in the Football League Cup at Fratton Park in October 2009 in the fourth round and won 4-0
