Jackett not worried by Pompey’s defensive lapses

Pompey’S ‘cheap day out’ is the second most expensive in the Championship.

Only West Ham come out pricier when charting a range of costs from a day at a game, according to a BBC survey.

The survey adds the cheapest adult ticket to prices for a cup of tea, programme and pie.

And the Blues finished second bottom.

The criteria was set to work out the cost of going to a game for fans without season tickets – and those followers will have to shell out £33.50 to do that at Fratton Park next season.

Those costs were broken down as £25 for the cheapest ticket with a further £3 (matchday programme), £3.50 (pie) and £2 (cup of tea).

All prices were fixed under Pompey’s former owners.

Watford finished top of the Championship with their cheapest day out totalling £17.30.

Pompey’s chief executive David Lampitt said: ‘Before we set our prices we absolutely do look at the prices across the Championship.

‘We actually operate a close range of pricing and also donate £2 of some of our tickets to charity.

‘When that is taken into account we are in the middle of the table for pricing, which is where we ought to be.’
