Ronnie McFall's side crashed 6-0 in the first leg, but he is aiming for his Irish Premiership side to at least get among the goals for morale in the return game.
After work commitments ruled him out of the first game, goalkeeper David Miskelly returns in goal.
However they will still be without Tim Mouncey, Matthew Padgett, Jamie Tumilty and Chris Ramsey, who all missed the first leg.
Portadown reached the second qualifying round after shocking Macedonian outfit Shkendija 79 2-1 on aggregate earlier this month.
