Pompey’s trip to Leicester City on New Year’s Eve will now be televised live on Sky Sports.

Kick-off against Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side at the King Power Stadium has therefore been switched to the earlier time of 12.15pm.

Meanwhile, the club’s Championship encounter with Birmingham at St Andrews will now be played on Tuesday, February 7 (7.45pm).

The match was originally scheduled for next month but has been postponed due to Birmingham’s continued participation in the Europa League.
