Have your say

Richie Barker was today missing from Pompey training.

The Blues boss did not take the first-team for their session at Fratton Park.

Barker’s assistant Anthony Williams and coach Alan McLoughlin were instead overseeing the players.

There were also no plans for the 38-year-old to undertake his weekly press duties, ahead of Saturday’s match with Newport County.
