POMPEY players have shown their true colours by pitching in to help man the ticket office in the club’s hour of need.

Liam Lawrence, Greg Halford and Joel Ward worked in the office itself, while Luke Varney manned the phones on reception.

They were all mucking in so they could do their bit to help pack the park for today’s Pompey game against Leeds.

Pompey administrator Trevor Birch has said it is vital that the club aims to sell-out every match between now and the end of the season.

Pompey skipper Liam said: ‘The club is in a situation where if it isn’t bought or doesn’t make money by May, it could fold.

‘For us to survive we need full houses at the ground for our last nine home games. We’re doing all we can to help people to come along and watch.

‘We’re doing our bit. It’s now us, the staff and the supporters sticking together to get us through this.’

By the time the kiosks closed yesterday around 17,000 tickets had been sold.

Mr Birch announced yesterday that £5 was being knocked off the price of the Leeds tickets, and those who’d bought them before the discount was introduced would be able to redeem it when buying tickets for the Birmingham game on March 20.

Mr Birch said: ‘We are doing all we can behind the scenes to make it more affordable and convenient to attend the games, so keep checking the website.’
