STEWARDS, security staff and bar staff have been told they will be paid money they are owed for January and February, but not wages from Christmas.

The News understands some of these staff members were planning on staying at home today instead of working, putting Pompey’s match against Leeds in doubt.

But after being told they will definitely get their money for the first two months of this year they have backed down.

Trevor Birch, PKF joint administrator of Pompey, confirmed that was the case.

He said: ‘Every member of match-day staff was told they would be paid the money they are owed from the middle of January to the middle of February by the end of the month.’

A spokesman for PKF added: ‘But the money for December and January has not been paid.

‘We are doing everything we can to try and stabilise the situation.’

One member of staff, who wished to remain anonymous, told The News: ‘We will be working at the match because there’s nothing else we can do.

‘We’re still owed money from two years ago, and we want to get it back, however long it takes.

‘We’ve really just had enough, and we’re fed up of being owed money and not knowing when we’ll see it again, if ever.’
